Hi again, I just acquired a used blackberry bold 9000.
The seller that sold it to me said he put in a new battery and his dog chewed up his usb cable before the BB started charging.
He said he found this phone in a park at chicago illinois and took it up for repairs.
Anyway, I followed the guides that some people posted up that got their phones on and running.
Let me ask this, I just plugged in my BB 9000 to an official blackberry wall charger.
The red light came on for about 40 seconds and shut off and did not show a battery with a red x over it or a bolt.
How long should I give the phone time to respond before I let my phenom ii x6 try to access and charge it up ?
I had one minor success when trying to jumpstart the phone with my pc, it showed a bolt over the battery on a black screen with my pc, blackberry desktop 5 tried to charge it but lost the connection....
Any advice I should clearly follow properly ?

I'll be using my mini iphone until this BB 9000 is working correctly and fix up the cosmetic issues in 2 weeks.
