Angry Blackberry 8350i won't turn back on, no red light.

Please Login to Remove!

So i was texting 2 nights ago, when my blackberry turned off completely. the red light was blinking on and off. then i thought i'd just remove the battery and put it back on and try that, then nothin.. not even a red light. now here i am 2 days later with nothing. ive researched, researched, and researched this subject, tried everything i've seen to no avail. i got the red light to come on once when i plugged the usb cable to the phone then to the computer, but then it went off after installing blackberry desktop mananger. uninstalled it thinkin maybe thats what it was, but when it was uninstalled, there was no solid red light like before. so now i dont know what to do. jd_cmder cant find my phone, neither can the computer.. (the computer would recognize a device was plugged in when the red light was on, but now no red light, so no connection to computer) so what are my options? i called sprint and asked them and they said since it hasnt been 30 days, id have to pay 100 dollars to get a new one since i have insurance. now... since i havent had this phone for 30 days, why cant i just get a new one? this is my 2nd 8350i in the past 3 weeks. both have messed up.. but this just seems like a software issue. but i cant wipe the OS if the phone wont turn on.. any suggestions? thanks!

If your battery is completely dead it may take some time for it to charge enough. Give it 4-5 hours connected before you try again.
