Default I don't know what's wrong with my black berry

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, Two days ago I purchased a black berry pearl flip, i went to bed without pluging in the charger.

I woke up and i noticed my text messages were not sending all of a sudden. So I figured hmm maybe it's not connecting because I am in my basement. So I went up stairs on the front deck and still nothing, So i put it on the charger , nothing, I took the battery out, and now it won't turn on at all. at first it was a white screen with a box (Almost looked like a timer, had the hands going around), So I switched my battery with my friends phone it turns on just fine. But it will not recieve text messages and the old battery will not make his phone turn on.

It's pretty important that i get this phone working, Any ideas?

-Thanks

Do you have a TM plan on the phone? Have you called your carrier to see if it is provisioned for TM?

It is a carrier issue. SMS is all carrier controlled. Looks like there might be an SMS outage
