    You can follow the directions to restore a nuked BlackBerry and see if that will help. You find the info here: How to Reload the Operating System on a Nuked or Bricked BlackBerry | CrackBerry.com

    I can't help you with not losing everything that is in there. This is a lesson learned...backup your phone on a regular basis. Just how long has it been since your last backup?

    I don't think its nuked though because it doesn't turn on, it's literally just a red light blinking. That's it...
    My computer doesn't recognize it because of that.
    This can't mean that the phone is completly dead right?

    Can you borrow a battery from a friend? See if this is battery related.

    Try cleaning battery contacts.

    Default My phone simply shut down while anwering a text and now it only has the red light blinking.

    Try connecting to the PC with the battery removed.

    Incidentally, unless you know what you are doing, cleaning the contacts of electronic devices is a bad idea. If you do clean the contacts, I suggest an electronics grade isopropyl, or reagent grade if you have access to a chem lab. In the states, Puretronics technical grade isopropyl does the job and it is relatively cheap. (About $7 for 32 oz.) Use a cotton swab on a stick.

    Most consumer grade alcohol isn't anhydrous to the same degree as the Puretronics, and worse yet may contain agents to prevent skin from drying that coat the contacts.

    Overkill, but you could follow up with Caigs Deoxit.
