Default help 7130e w/ battery & blue lightning bolt

Please Login to Remove!

I connected dh's old Verizon 7130e to the charge and have a battery and blue lightning bolt icon. It won't turn on. Is there a way to fix this? I am interested in getting it working. I would like to receive calls on it. It is with Verizon but when running search I see Verizon and Sprint used the phone. I am with Sprint now. I really need a way to have a planner attached to my phone basically. I don't need web access or anything like that.

But first I need to get it working....any help?

Sprint won't let you place that BB on their network, they require only their own devices.

But to charge it....

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.

Neither Verizon nor Sprint will activate a device they didn't sell. That means a Verizon BB will not work on Sprint, even though the technology is compatible. And without activation by your carrier an old device is little more than a paperweight.
