    Unhappy Blackberry battery has a huge red x on the screen

    okay, so
    I was charging my phone after it was nearly dead this morning, I was in the middle of sending someone a bbm and the screen went white and the red led light came on

    i left it alone for a couple minutes thinking it was gonna restart, it didnt
    i took the battery out, checked the little white paper on the battery, nothing, no water damage
    so i put it back in, and it first shows the battery with the charging symbol on it, then quickly goes to an empty battery with a red x on it

    it does this on my laptop and wall charger, i took the battery out and tried plugging it in
    it does the same thing with the battery as it does without the battery

    Well the obvious thing to try here is a new battery. If it still happens then the phones OS may need to be reloaded, doubtful but hopeful. If the "X" does not appear then you need to replace the battery as this one would be damaged or at least non functional.

    This happens to a few people. They always say a new battery will get this solved, so you should give that a try.

    What phone is it? Check ebay or something similar.

    You could hook the phone on the wall charger leaving the battery out, then after 15 minutes plug the battery in and let it sit for a while.
    I've read that this helped someone in the other thread.

    The M-S2 (that battery) is the cheapest battery in the market for BBs. It's about 15 bucks, bro.

    Uhm... Yeah, that'll (hopefully) do the trick. Give it a shot.

    By the way, I'm not telling you your phone is fixed after this, just see if it works for you (just like the other guy in the other thread).

    If you charge via USB, your PC won't charge it. USB ports are current limited by design. An external USB charger MAY charge the battery if it puts out enough amperage. Make sure it will put out at least 700ma or 0.7A. If not, that's likely the problem.

    I just looked on eBay- on the first page of batteries for the 8520/8530, the lowest price I found is $3.25, plus shipping. Sometimes you can get deals on two. Type in "blackberry curve 8530 battery" in the search field.

    I had this problem last week. I found out that my battery was cold & so I held it in my hand for about 30 mins - 1 hour. Eventually the heat from the center of your hand will give the cells in the battery a "jump start". After a while put battery straight in & charge ASAP. It should show charging symbol & fully charge ur phone with no problem. If it does or doesn't let me know in here.

    No need buying another battery.

    There's nothing you can do about it. Believe me. I sent it off for repair.

    Did you guys even try to plug it to the mains charger and leave it there for a couple hours?

    belive me i can tell you how to fix it, that means ur phone is not conecting with the battery, just drop the phone on a carpeted floor face ear side up of course. I know it sounds crazy but it works u must jar it up. don`t drop it any higher than 3 feet. try it a couple of times until it starts chargeing and then once it charges cut it on i promise try it
