Hi

I have a curve 8520 and haven't had it a year yet, for some odd reason when i woke up this morning and took my phone off charge it had frozen couldnt use it at all keypad didnt work menu didnt come up nothing. So i pulled out the battery and restarted my handset and its still the same, nothing works anything i press the screen stays the same home screen image. I cant back up my device blackberry software doesn't recognise the device via usb.

Did you drop it or get it wet?

What was the last thing you did before this happened?

No havent dropped it or got it wet. I didn't do anything different on it at all to make this happen.

Thanks for the reply

I had something similar happen to my BB two days ago. I thought I had properly plugged in the charger only to discover after trying a different battery it was caused by a dead battery. Aparently i did not seat the plug right. Unless you can verify the charger is plugged in by seeing the little lightning bolt on the battery indicator you may either have a bad charger or not plugged it in all the way. Worth a try.
