Well, 11 months old and my 8700 finally went into a coma.
It's been a good device, and has been the host of MANY different OS versions during it's stint in my holster.
This afternoon, it went to a black screen with a solid red light and that's all she will do.
It will not show up to on the computer, PERIOD, to even try and wipe and re-load it.
Rogers is UPS'ing me a new one, kind of funny, since I was going for an upgrade to the Curve on the 2nd of May, so I'll only have this new 8700 for a week before I upgrade.
Crazy how these things happen.
