Blackberry 8520 inflating the batteries.


My blackberry curve 8520 battery life has become 2-3 hours without running any applications. The battery has inflated and one day the phone automatically switched off so tried rebooting but it wasn't happening so i tried a new battery and the phone started but after some time even that battery inflated. The mobile repair guy is said that there's some motherboard problem and the phone is heating up. PLEASE HELP.

Re: Blackberry 8520 inflating the batteries.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

At an internet distance, it's pretty much impossible to second guess what a qualified technician has told you. Given what you describe, it is completely possible that your BB itself has a hardware problem (e.g., motherboard) and that all batteries you use will experience this issue.

If you trust the repair person, then there is nothing we can offer since we have no way to physically evaluate your device. If you don't trust the repair person, then I believe you need to find one that you do trust.

Good luck!
