    ***I SEARCHED THE FORUMS FOR OVER FOUR HOURS*** Title pretty much says it all. The phone will blink five times: one, then a short pause then four fast blinks. Then it takes a breather and does it again. It does this with the battery in or no battery plugged into the usb. I have tried to do battery pulls, and also tried to charge it to see if it was too dead. I was having the app error 523 message again, as usual, then this happened. I tried to reload it using DM, tried to wipe using jl_cmdr, tried to use BBSAK and the app loader tutorial from the blackberry 101 series on here, but that is if the phone is actually booting in repeat. Mine does absolutely nothing, black screen, just a red flashing LED. Am I dead for good or do is there some trick I didn't find? Thank you in advance for the help from the bb masters!

    I tried everything in that link. Basically the computer will not recognize my phone at all on any BB computer program in any way. This thing is a turd as far as I'm concerned. It all started with an app 523 error that went haywire I guess. ku

    Ok well I said screw this phone and I am rolling to a backup Alias for the time being. Any ideas on what to get? Bold? Curve 8330? Droid X?
