    It sounds like the phone is disabled by your carrier at the BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server). The carrier can set up policies to control your phone until you contact them.

    Who is your carrier? Do you have instructions from the delivery package on how to "Activate" your phone?


    Try charging your battery in your phone overnight. If that does not work, you may have a "dead-on-arrival" phone -- not likely, but it does happen.

    By the way, don't switch batteries unless you know for certain it is the exact one for the phone. They are "smart batteries" and will not operate -- else they could damage the phone -- if it is not the correct battery.

If you did a hard reset and tried a firmware restore then you most likely have a logic board issue. If your carrier doesn't help you or your're out of warranty you can try to replace the logic board yourself with a blackberry bold repair guide.

Blackberry 8900 would not turn on


Make sure that your battery is not absolutely empty. Plug in your charger and hang on for 15 minutes. If nothing happens than you must have a hardware problem, that means you have to visit your phone brand's service.

Blackberry curve wont power on. Worked fine yesterday. Put on charger last night. This morning phone was off and wont power on. Took battery out, then but back in still wont turn on


First charge your mobile for atleast 1 hour,and switch it ON you to remove the battery when mobile is turned ON and wait for few seconds re insert the battery then check

If problem still exsists connect your blackberry to computer check wheather its recognising the device If "yes" you need to take a back up of your hands set and re-install the operating system of your Blackberry. To perform a clean installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps:- 1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 2) Click Help. 3) Select About Desktop Manager. 4) Click the Device Software tab. 5) Verify that the BlackBerry Device Software displayed is the latest version currently available from the wireless service provider.

Blackberry 8900 red light on but doens't work


Take it to a cell phone place and let them try a new battery.. My wife was talking on hers in a light drizzle, it shorted everything out one tiny tiny drop. The red light came on, never to work again, once the screen shorts out for a split second it is dead.If the battery shows red x's on the bottom or behind the battery you find a red x you can be sure the screen is shorted out.

If your BlackBerry gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.
