Re: Phone will not turn on
Your firmware is probably messed up a bit - you will need to redo a complete flash - but not with usb cable - you will need proper equipment like JAF - but you don't need to spend $300 for a tool - we can fix it for you for under $30

I don't have that particular phone, but my phone has a small LED in the front that turns to red when it's in the charger with a fully drained battery, yellow when it's above 20% charge, and green when it's fully charged.
If the phone is fully charged, but it won't turn on when you press the power button, there's probably a problem with either your charger or the battery itself. I suggest replacing the battery, or when it's built into the phone itself visit the store where you bought it. They might know what to do.
Did you drop the phone in water recently? Did you get it wet in the rain? Apart from the likely possibility that the phone is actually damaged/battery damaged, this happens if the power button gets damaged. When you put the phone to charge, in the middle of the night the power button "acted" as if it was pressed and held and the phone turned off. Now when you press the power button, nothing happens because the power button is damaged.
Take it to a repair shop and check the power button for damage. It is replaceable and should not cost a lot.
Does your phone have a removable battery? If yes then you might be in luck. If not, then just take the phone to repair shop and get the power button checked and repaired.
If battery is removable I know that it is possible to turn on the phone this way: 1) Plug in the charger to the phone 2) Remove the battery and insert it immediately. Do this multiple times and the phone should turn on without having to press the power button. Hope that works.
If battery is charged and phone is working simply do this: Press the power button for a few seconds, which is the same as the "hang up" button with red ink on it). Voila! It took me serveral days and a number of dealers telling me I had to pend $300 for a new phone before I uncovered this fix.
OK, this is what you do:
1. Make sure your Jabra VBT 2050 is fully charged.
2. Enable bluetooth on your phone.
3. Turn on your VBT 2050 with the little button on the side (the white light between the keys should flash).
4. Initiate a search from your phone while holding down the center button on the VBT 2050 (middle, under the + and -).
5. You might need to do another bluetooth search using your phone (it took me about 4 times befor my Blackberry Storm picked up the signal.
6. When your phone asks for a code, type in 0000 (the default number).
unfortunately, you'll have to do a master reset on your phone. You'll loose all of your data. TO do this.. power off the phone. Then press the center select button (silver button on navigation pad) then power on the phone while keeping the sliver button pressed. You should get a Master reset prompt.. click Yes.
