My blackberry curve gets a battery drain as soon as it powers up.
I know the batterys full becuase i've charged it in another phone and its full battery.
Its an immediate battery drain and the phone gets really hot?
Ive had a read around and people have said to get it replaced but my 1 year warranty has expired...
What to do now....

an app of some sort is causing the drain. Its also possible that the device is too but its hard to tell. You can take it to a store for an second opinion or go here for some tips to extend your battery.

if the phone is stuck, try doing a battery pull

i've done numerous battery pulls, the phone literally just doesnt turn on now
going to try a kickstart this bb to turn on now to see if that helps?
hopefully i can get somewhere with the blackberry now

I understand, sorry! Can you take it to the store? I'm not sure what the issue is since you've already done the software reload.

The store can at least tell you whats wrong with it and provide options on getting it fixed or repaired.
You can try this, but if it doesn't work, taking it to the store is the only option.
force the detection of the BlackBerry smartphone using Application Loader
