Most likely, this means the battery life of your phone's battery has expired since the last time you used it successfully. However, to be sure, first try to reset your phone. You can do this by holding down the Alt, Cap, and Delete buttons at the same time for at least ten seconds, causing the device to power down. Once off, remove the phone's battery then re-insert the battery and turn your device on. This may reboot the phone and it could work fine. If not, you will need to purchase a new Blackberry Curve battery to use in the device in the future.

Hi there, my blackberry curve 8520 was working fine today until I plug it to a wall charger. It wouldn't turn on and red light comes on for 20 seconds. Please help and thanks in advance

I really can't explain why it decided to do that after it was charging, but I believe that your phone is 'bricked'.
There's an excellent guide that even I use in case I have issues with my BlackBerry.
Follow the directions in the guide to, hopefully, alleviate your issue.

How did i want to know that my blackberry curve 8520 is charging?is there any signal?

There's a symbol of the battery on the top left corner. When you plug in the charger and turn it on, note the changes in the battery. It will show that it's filling. When the indicator steadies itself at the maximum point, it indicates that the battery is full.

Hope this will help. If you need any more assistance, don't hesitate to come back to us. Else, if the problem is solved, please DO ACCEPT this solution. Best Wishes. Thanks for using FixYa.

My blackberry curve is not charging

Diagnose the regular charger by using the data cable and plugging it to the computer, the data cable also charges your BlackBerry. If this doesn't work the battery may be dead beyond salvation.

Blackberry charge symbol appears but does not charge battery

are you using the charger that came with the BlackBerry?  cause sometimes that can make a difference.
otherwise you might just need to get a new charger.
and usually the wall chargers work the best.
i had a BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and the same thing happened to mine.

Sounds like the battery has failed. Replace it on Ebay for a new cheaper battery than at AT&T.
