Default My Blackberry Bold 9700 wont turn on

Please Login to Remove!

for the last few days my blackberry has not been turning on. It ran out of charge as normal, I charged it up and i tried to turn it on as it was charging. It then it comes up with a loading screen with the blackberry logo on it and a loading bar under the logo. It loads up very slowly when it has finished it comes up with the orange start up screen, just like any phone would. But mine just stays on this screen. it has been there for a few days now. i have tried taking the battery out and putting it back in again but the same thing happens. i have also tried putting another battery in but still the same thing happens. also as it is on the orange turning on screen the red light still flashes.just like it does when you recieve a text.
this is very frustrating as you can imagine. any suggestions would be much appreciated

BlackBerry batteries HATE being discharged below 20% or so. It can damage them and ruin their ability to hold a charge. You should try a different battery and see if that helps. I would advise going to an Orange shop and borrowing one for a few minutes before buying a new battery. If it does indeed solve the problem, buy an OEM battery and not some cheap Chinese knockoff.
