Default Please Help!!! My blackberry stopped working

Please Login to Remove!

My blackberry curve suddenly stopped working today in school. I have tried to charge it but it looks dead, nothing comes on.
I bought it unlocked so I don't know if calling t-mobile will be of any use.
I hope someon here will be able to help me out

Take a deep breath, stay calm... and do not panic. BlackBerry devices are very resilient.. it is not that easy to brick them.

Step 1) 1st step to take if device is having problems? - BlackBerryFAQ

If still not resolved...

Step 2) How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

If still not resolved...

Step 3) What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

ARE you certain that the battery is not dead and/or you have charged it correctly?

Leave the device to charge 2-3 hours, and then, still connected to the USB cable, remove the the battery from the device a few seconds and reinsert it. If it boots--leave it to charge to 100% (check Options > Status for the percentage).

If it doesn't boot--try using a wall outlet charger if you are not. If you are connected via USB to the PC, make certain that you have Desktop Manager (or the USB device drivers) installed, which you can download below.

Make certain your USB cable is connected to one of the PC's main rear USB ports. Not a USB hub, nor a monitor USB port, nor a USB port on the front of the PC.

Download Desktop Manager from here:
