Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone
My Blackberry curve (in use for about 20 months) was low on battery. I left it on the table and after 2-3 hours noticed it was turned off. Assuming that battery ran out of juice, I plugged it in, but it won't turn back on. First few times after plugging it in, the red light turned on and there was a large battery charging icon on the screen. After a few attempts to turn it on, the battery icon turned to a large icon with a red line through the battery.
Assuming this battery needed some charge, I left it plugged in for several hours, but phone won't turn on or show any icon. It was completely dead.
I swapped batteries with a colleague who has a similar phone to check. My battery worked in his phone, his battery (which works in his phone) didn't work in mine though.
I haven't tried buying a new battery since the current battery works in another phone, so I assume it has juice left, except my BlackBerry won't turn on.
1. try this method
2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.
3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.
Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.
Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.
Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.
4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.
We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.
Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command
Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')
