Could be that the battery is not making good contact with the charging prongs inside the BB. Try cleaning both the battery contacts and BB contacts with a pencil eraser (making sure to get all the eraser debris out).

You might also try putting a paper shim along the edge of the battery opposite the contacts. It might not be making a good connection due to a little slack.

Last resort is to head to a Sprint store and see if they have a spare battery to try. There's always a chance your battery itself if just plain dead.
