Default New BB 7230 - LED issues

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased a supposedly new 7230 from ebay. I installed my SIM card from my other phone; have charged-up the unit using the USB cable; and have installed the desktop manager.

When the unit is plugged in via USB, I get a red flashing light, about every 6 seconds. This only happens when the unit is turned OFF and charging.

I do NOT have messages or voicemails waiting to be opened.

When the unit is turned ON and plugged in via USB, I have no LED indicator whatsoever.

When the unit is turned ON and free from USB connection, there is no LED indicator whatsoever. I do have signal and can make calls.

I have never seen the light turn green. The only way I knew that the battery was charged was by going into options and checking.

Any clues about the red flashing LED and/or the lack of green?

I want to know if this thing works properly before actually calling t-mobile to add BB service. Right now it's phone only.

Thanks.

I have left it charging overnight and it was still flashing when fully charged. I thought it was supposed to be green when fully charged.

The 7230 LED does not turn green, IIRC.

aha! Thank you.
I had gotten the green idea from reading other people's responses to similar questions.

Now I've gotta go twist the ebay seller's arm to send me all the accessories that he conveniently left out of the package. *grumble*
