Default Big Bertha Won't Turn On

Please Login to Remove!

Ok-so I went to the hood supermarket and some freak tried to snatch my berry. It ended up being rolled over by a cart, but I got it back. except now, the red light in the corner is on solid, and it won't turn on.

I just downloaded and ran JL Cmdr and I'm getting nothing. Is it dead? Does insurance cover "near theft"?

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry, but this just made my LMFAO.

Anyway, to answer your question, yes your device is probably dead.

Does there appear to be physical damage to the device? If not, you may be covered under then mfgr warranty.

she's alive! she had another spill and oddly enough woke right up:


it's dawning on me how dumb it probably was to fight over a phone. I'm just glad everything is working.

Usually if that happens you can wipe the BB and reload the OS. For future information.

Good to hear.

If you have a password set on your phone and you're on a BES or make frequent backups, there is no reason to fight over a phone. Just get a new SIM card and device and call it a day.
