Phone not working, any suggestions...?
1. Phone doesn't want to boot up.

*I think it's bricked from trying to unlock it with a flash.

2. The power led does come on when plugged in with charger and the screen does lit up but that's about all it does.

Any quick suggestions or instructions on how to repair? Thank you SO much!

Whats happens without it plugged in when you try to power it on?

Also I don't believe you can unlock via flashing.

I wil try to find you some info on reloading the OS but the FAQ is down right now. If I don't post it someone will soon.

Okay, this is what happens when I try to turn it on without the charger.

*The screen lit up but nothing shows up.

what do you mean tried to unlock with a flash? usually to unlock a BB all you need is a code provided by a carrier or a third party. you can do an OS update via Desktop Manager to try and get the device working again. welcome to the forums

Okay, I will do an update with the desktop manager. Thanks for the warm welcome.
