    Default LED FLASHES RED 4 TIMEs - Phone won't turn on

    Similar posts out here and can't find an answer: I have a BB Bold that was working fine today. Since 5:30 ET, it has gone to a black screen. When plugged in, the led light blinks 4 times, pauses, blinks 4 times, pauses, and so on. This blinking pattern has continued for hours. I unplugged and removed thte battery, and then returned the battery to the phone and plugged it in again with no improvement. The phone will not turn on and continues to blink as described. There has been no drop or moisture damage to the unit. Any ideas as to what is going on? Thanks for any and all replies. MoMama

    Perhaps, bad battery.
    Go to the ATT store and have then do a switch with one of their known good batteries.

    Is it new from ATT and less then a year old ... it is under a RIM warranty.
    A referb has some warranty too, but not necessarily one year.

    4 red flashes is the official error code for "Your Focked".
