Default PLEASE HELP. 8520 Charging and Power Problems

Please Login to Remove!

Got a new BB 8520 today. Had it on without sim for a while and it worked ok. Took out battery and popped the sim in and when i went to turn it on it didnt respond. Ive had it on charge on the mains for two hours and still nothing.

When I plug it in to charge the red light comes on for 10 seconds then off again, then a white screen with a battery and lightning bolt symbol appears, the battery remains fully white and its doesnt seem to be doing anything other than keeping this image on constantly until i unplug it.

PLLLEEAAASSEEEEE Help

A very frustrated new user.

two things.
Make sure your SIM card is in correct
Check to see the battery is in correct.

then i suggest returning it if it's new. With the SIM in wrong it should still power up ok.

I just needed some advice quickly and the initial post to which you refered was not attracting any support.
