    hey,

    I got my bold 9900 today but the battery was open in the box and completely flat so the guy asked me to charge it at home...anyways, it is charging for last four hours and all it shows on the screen is a red cross mark on the battery...do I need to charge it more or does this mean that the battery is bad? I hope there is nothing wrong with the phone because they are out of stock until two more weeks then...

    I bet someone had a bad battery and they swapped the original one in that box for it and didn't mark the box properly. You could try calling the carrier and ask that they overnight a new one to you, and explain that the battery was unwrapped when you opened the box. Sounds like it's completely toast and won't take a charge.

    Are you certain the battery was the only thing not new? Did handset look new and have protective film over screen, battery door and camera area? If not, get the whole kit replaced.

    Take everything that was given to you the day you got the device.

    Box and all, go to the store and ask for everything to be exchanged.
