BB Curve not switching on

Hi ,


My BB is off and is failing to switch back on. I have charged it for over two hours, I removed and reinserted the battery but nothing happens. The light goes on when I put the battery back in but the phone stays in that rebooting mode for over an hour and then the screen goes black.


What do I do?

Hi and welcome to the forums!


First try booting the phone in safe mode as listed. If that doesn't work you may have to reload the device OS.
