Curve 8520 just switches off

I have had this phone for nearly two years and this is the first time i have a problem. 

It just switches off in middle of conversation, browsing, chating, sms whatever. only way i get it on again is to plug in the charger. Does this atleast 6 times a day.

My battery has also not been lasting the whole day anymore. Can it be the battery?

P.S i dont do any fancy stuff, just basics bbm, whatsapps, browsing

Re: Curve 8520 just switches off

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


It is indeed possible that your battery has experienced a problem...to test, this sequence is needed:

  1. Obtain a known good and already fully charged additional battery...use it in your BB and see what happens
  2. Obtain access to a known good and identical BB...use your battery in it and see what happens

The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem.

Good luck and let us know!
