    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.

My bb curve wont ring/vibrate and the red light will not flash when I get a call/text message/voicemail.

You will need to firstly check the profile settings for notification of call/ text/ message/ voice mail.

On the home screen it is the speaker icon (profile) usually upper right corner

Choose the profile and scroll until you find the current profile - WIll be marked as active.

Scroll to the bottom of the menu for advanced
in the next menu - click on the bold active profile and opt for edit

Find the phone/ SMS/ MMS/ Messenger and any other actions that are not currently notifying...

Check the LED flashing option is set on all of these.

This behavior indicates that no applications are installed on the BlackBerry smartphone

CAUSE: The Application Loader tool in BlackBerry® Desktop Manager removed existing applications from the BlackBerry smartphone, but failed to install new applications.

  1. Verify that BlackBerry Device Software is installed on the computer.
  2. If the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to a laptop computer using a docking station, disconnect the docking station from the laptop computer and connect the BlackBerry smartphone directly to the laptop computer.
  3. If a third-party application uses the same communications port as the BlackBerry Desktop Software, close the third-party application.
  4. If you use a USB adapter to connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a serial port, temporarily connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a USB port.
  5. In the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, double-click Application Loader.
  6. Follow the Application Loader tool prompts to install the BlackBerry Device Software.

WD 8830 not working

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
