    Hi, I have a Blackberry Storm 9530 and it is unlocked. I was using the blackberry messenger and received a call, i talked on the call for about 20 minutes, then flipped my phone back sideways to resume my chatting on the messenger. as soon as i did that the phone brought up an error message and turned off immediately. the phone just shows a red blinking light at the top and wont even turn on anymore, i tried charging it, took the battery out for an hour and put it back in, but nothing seems to work.

    Please any suggestions would help!

    Wow, That sounds like a hardware failure.

    At this point I would suggest calling Verizon, or the place where you got your phone. They should be able to at least tell you what they can do for you.

    If it is Verizon they should replace the phone, I had some hardware problem and they replaced it with no questions asked, and I didn't pay a cent for it.

    If you can't get the device to turn back on see if you can get it to register from the BB desktop manager. That may not work, but it is at least worth a shot, if you can set it back to defaults, or restore from a backup there is a chance you can get it to start. It really sounds like something just cooked in the device though. If you are able to restore, or set the device back to defaults you may want to be aware that you will lose contacts and things like that (if your restore is out-dated that is.) But if you can't get the phone to even boot up there is a good chance it is gone already.

    Definitely call someone to see about having the device replaced.

    I hope this is of some help
