    i dropped my blackberry bold 9650, now it won't turn on. i've changed the battery, and when i plug in the charger, a battery with a red x appears on the screen. is it fixable?

    It sounds like you have knocked the connecting from the battery to the main board loose. Is it fixable? Maybe, but you will need to take it to a repair shop and spend some money to get it done. If it is under warranty, just take it to the store and get a replacement. Otherwise you might be better off finding a different device.

    If the OP dropped it wouldn't that be an insurance claim under accidental damage? I suppose if there's no obvious physical damage to the housing it may slip thru under the warranty.

    Yea it would make a difference on what the physical apperance of the device looks like but is worth a shot either way. They won't replace it if you don't bring it in.

    To be honest, to me, it sounds like the battery went bad. I'd try a different battery first. Just my $0.02

    The OP said he already tried a different battery and it didn't work.
