My curve was fine yesterday, didn't need charging. Last night I went to use it and the screen is black and nothing works. I have tried charging it but still nothing. If you call it, it goes to voicemail but doesn't ring. No lights, no rings no warning, no nothing. Any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.

At the first - very common practice: remove battery, wait a minute and turn the battery back.
To clarify the situation, provide answers to the questions:

Mine died this morning also. I turned it off last night with a charged battery. This morning, when I turned it on, I only got a red light for 12 seconds, then blank screen. I tried plugging it into the charger, I get the red light sequence twice, then it goes to a faint screen with a battery icon and a charging symbol in the middle.
I tried connecting to the computer and manager software. Doesn't recognize it. The computer won't even show the phone being attached.
The battery is putting out 2.64 volts.
I removed the battery for over a minute (several times). When I replace the battery, I get the same red light sequence. If I'm on just the battery, the screen is blank after a few minutes. If I'm plugged into a charger, I get the red light sequence several times, then it goes to the faint screen with the battery / charging icon.... The phone will NOT power up whatsoever.

It came back to life!! I had it plugged into a charger for 4 hours and suddenly, the screen lit up. The battery level showed completely dead. I already have a replacement phone on it's way. I've backed up everything from the phone and pulled the media card out and copied it.
The tech at Sprint / Blackberry said the phone was toast.
