did so, I forgot to mention I know my way around computers and cell phones, I was just wondering if there was a way to put the phone in flash mode or something, where you can actually upload a firmware if the original firmware is faulty.
or could it actually be the battery, f.e. that if it gets connected to the usb the battery would report it's already full or just doesn't want to be charged and therefore refuse the connection or something?
Open Desktop Manager on your PC desktop. Connect the BB via USB again, and LEAVE it connected for a while to see if it stays connected. you can see in DM the actions "working"... "connected", and your PIN number.
actually if I connect it and leave it connected it simply connects and disconnects infinitely ... and windows reports usb device not recognized everytime ...
