Default BB 8220 battery problem.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, on this forum I read that for BB 8220 is also suitable C-S2 battery.
But after I set myself the C-S2, this image appears on the secondary screen -
BB 8220 battery problem.-2016-12-17-15.43.17_.jpg
What am I doing wrong? Where can I find the manual with the definition of all displayable icons on the screen?
Really need your help ...

The display indicates the battery is not a genuine blackberry battery, Although the number is correct it may be a phony offered by many. The real battery should be one listed as OEM. It may work ok but you will need to try it and see.

As for the manual , this link will offer one.

According to the specifications, this battery is not suitable for 8220. But here on this forum there is a topic (C-S2 battery in the Pearl) in which people wrote that all works fine. So I think the problem with the battery. But by the terms of refunding I need to prove it. Therefore it is very important to me to find documentation.
The manual that you suggest I have read a few times, but did not find description of this error. You can specify where you found it there?
Maybe I read not attentively enough ...

I had an old Icon display from Blackberry.com that showed the error but it no longer is on their site.

I searched This forum and found the C-S2 battery was reported as NOT compatible with the 8220.

just one here
8200 Batteries compatible with Curve/7130 batteries?

what I did find is a few people trying to use the C-S2 battery and not reporting the error you see so my guess is they are ether ignoring it or have older or newer OS loaded and do not get the error.

You need the right battery to stop the error display

C-S2 3.7v 1150mAh

C-M2 3.7v 900mah

Not sure what documentation you need but Amazon does show the 8220 OEM battery as the C-M2
The cost for a new battery is about $4.00

A bigger issue may be the LI battery. A lot of news lately about them burning or exploding. The reported cause may be the chargers overworking the battery. You need to be careful with this.

Sorry but it may be your only fix.

It turns out that the people in this thread have lied? - www_blackberryforums.com/general-8100-series-discussion-pearl/82359-c-s2-battery-pearl_html
(I can not yet paste links by forum rules)
Even more strange that in a network is missing a full documentation of possible errors of the device. I always thought blakberri a serious company ...
It is interesting how the phone understands the difference, with a completely identical plugs and voltage per pin? But apparently, and this issue to not described anywhere.
PS
Neither Amazon nor ebey does not deliver it to my country, so I it does not fit. There are shops that agree to send, but they want $ 40-50 for an express delivery ...
I guess I'll just have to solder Li-ion of necessary capacity to the contacts :(
Thank you for your time

When reading posts in ANY forum the reader must be careful to check the facts offered.
The battery although showing a error message may work for you. The only issue I found is the size due to the increased capacity may not allow the cover to close.
Some have used a different cover to close the battery compartment.

I agree, paying $40 to 50 for a $15.00 battery is not the best .

Canada shipping charges .

[quote=tsac;1818102] - I'm not from Canada, I'm from Ukraine. Over the past year I have 4 times bought on Amazon and then received a refusal from the seller to send me here with apologies from the Amazon. I do not understand what for specify international shipment and then deny it.

[quote=suzanahentin;1818110] - I can't try it and see, because the phone does not work, it always shows the image of a crossed-out battery...


I found a couple of references that people supposedly use this battery in 2280, perhaps I was just unlucky. Apparently it's time to look for another "small phone"

Sorry, I looked up MTS and they indicated Canada.
the only suggestion I can think of is to try a local supplier. You may be able to show the cost online and see if they will come close to the price.
the other option you may have is to ship the battery to a re-shipper. Looking for a method I found there are companies who will receive goods and reship for a fee. some are ridiculous and some are very reasonable. It may be worth a try.
Some I found. I know absolutely nothing about these companies.
You should do a search also.
