I have a Blackberry 8100 that worked fine and then all of a sudden went black powered off and is now dead! I tried taking it to the wireless carrier and they told me the phone is useless! Is this common and is there anywhere I can take it to get repaired?

I had the same problem with a Curve. It was already charged, so I tried re-inserting the battery and trying another battery. Nothing worked. The solution, as you have described, is to wait longer before re-inserting the battery. I did not wait the full 15 minutes, but I did wait, on the 3rd try, at least 10 full seconds and it worked. Does anyone know why a BB goes dead? I had done nothing I had not done before.
