Re: Blackberry starting issue..



Your keyboard does not work at all? As in, the keys do not press at all? Or they press, but nothing happens? Or some other symptoms? 


In any case, that is a pretty major issue...did your BB perhaps become wet recently? As that is a potential cause of this issue...if at all possible, then


Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:

Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time. Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.

Good luck!
