    exact same problem - flashing red light - emails aren't coming through. I can make calls, but that's about it

    Same issue. The keyboard and side buttons don't work. The trackball will scroll but not select. Screen works until saver kicks in then only way to get it back is either reinsert the battery or plug it into power but still cannot do anything. I can't make calls but I can see incoming ones but cannot answer. It was working fine today and then started doing this in the afternoon. No idea what is causing it but I'm researching online and finding out this is a common problem with no fix other than a new phone. Arrgh.

    I have charged it the best I can get is the pic of the battery charging on the screen and the red light in the corner, nothing else comes up on the screen at all and will not power up at all. Worked just fine then the battery died and since then NOTHING URGH

Make sure you are not set to the "phone only" mode in profiles.
this may not be it, but it's worth a look.

I was experiencing the same issue with my 8830. After I attempted to install updates through the blackberry site, it rebooted and would not boot up. I went back to the blackberry site: I downloaded the latest from my carrier and I installed it using the exe that I got from my vendor. The whole process took 45 mins but I have a working BB again.

You need to take the phone to a mobile service tech and have them diagnosed the board and service it to correct these issues.

Also the phone signal is not active that is why it goes to VM
