Default Dropped curve

Please Login to Remove!

I have dropped my blackberry curve several times since I've gotten it, but recently it's been doing something odd, if I drop it from even the smallest height (yesterday it just fell off a bus seat and to the floor) it will shut off and basicly forget it has a battery, it will go on like that for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours and then randomly turn on by itself. Plugging it into the charger will cause the red light to come on and then it will show a white screen with a battery and a lightning bolt through it. Help?

Sounds like you damaged a battery contact.

Take the battery out and look at the contacts in the device and see if they are bent. You might be able to bend them back.
