Question New Blackberry charge time?

Please Login to Remove!

Just got my new Blackberry World edition!

I put in the battery - It's just blinking a red light...I assumed the batt was zapped since it's brand new.

It's plugged in right now and the little red light blinks on and off (What does that mean?) And occasionally, the screen turns white with a little hour glass, then goes black again - The red light constantly going on and off.

How long do I have to wait for it to charge? Is this NORMAL???

Leave it charging for quite a while, 3-5 hours. After charged good, unplug, remove the battery and replace it, to boot up. Check the charge status at Options > Status and if less than 100% give a bit more. You should be fine after three hours or so initially.
