I have a new Blackberry 8220 its unlocked from TMobile and it just keeps turning off by itself.
It has the BlackBerry Handheld Software v126.96.36.1998 (Indosat) and before I installed it I deleted the file "net_rim_tmo_five.cod". (This is the one I have now, tried already like 4 or 5)
The thing is that with NO sim It never reboots, and with the sim card IN it just goes crazy.
I tested for more than 5 hours now with no sim and its steady, with sim card in it in just powers off very randomly.
When it shuts down, no matter what, I have to pull out the battery and put it back again, the red light goes on (Just turns on, no blinking), it starts to boot up and then when comes to the white screen it turns off again except if I plug it to the charger. Sometimes it just boot normally, but then again it shuts down when using the phone.
I read a lot already about this and tried a lot, I dont really know if its a faulty battery or if its hardware. Cant be the OS, tried a lot already and wiped out everything following 3 or 4 guides.
Can someone help me here?
EDIT: Forgot to mention, sometimes, not always, It shuts down even pluged in to the charger.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Tried as a last kinda ilogic option, I dont know. Tried with stock firmware from TMobile, with Personal firmware from Argentina, one from Italy and last one that I removed that COD its from Indosat (v188.8.131.528)
Have tried already with these OS: v184.108.40.206, v220.127.116.110, v18.104.22.1688 (Indosat / Italian Carrier)

**bleep**, well that confirms that is hardware.
Guess I'll have to reclaim at the shop where I bought it. I think they won't change the unit in the same day and say something like they have to "Test the unit for a couple of days and check if it can be repaired"
Thanks you John, a lot.
