I have an 8830 blackberry that will not work the LED light keeps blinking red and I have changed the battery and that did not fix the problem. I have also tried to load the OS onto the blackberry but it will not respond in the desktop Manager it does not see the device I have the correct and updated blackberry Manager as well. The blackberry will not turn on at all. Does anybody have a fix for this issue besides getting a new blackberry?

I don't have your phone, but I did have that same problem a while back.
Try removing the battery, and leave it out for a couple hours, then replace it. Actually, when I did mine, I didn't mean to leave it out for so long, but when I placed it back, the problem was resolved.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

to me it sounds like the device is buggered.
Not sure what Verizon is like with their exchanges but I would probably just get the device exchanged.
