Replace the battery and see if that fixes it.

A new OEM battery?

Try connecting to BBSAK and see if that will connect. If so wipe and restore the OS.

I assumed that the "pin" would be the same you would use when pairing to a BT device. I now understand it is the PIN of the device.? ie eg:
127DE31J6

And since Desktop Manager can't connect to the device, it asks which PIN to connect to. But it doesn't let you enter it.

Well - with daughters phone, have not gotten to that point yet.! pc will not recognize it, seems that when I put in 3/4 charged batt, connect phone to pc, I get series of 15 sec long red led and audible connection to pc..then it disconnects also audibly and then in about 5 seconds re-connects again for another 15 seconds or so. It does this for maybe 5-6 times and then nadda. Seems to be draining battery power.

am now charging up a batt fully (in another phone), and see if i can get past this stage.
