How to turn on a Blackberry Curve

Hi Everyone

 

Having turned off my Blackberry Curve 8520 by holding down the red key (a rare occurence) - How do I turn it on again?

 

I can remove and replace the battery which works, but I would imagine there is a key combination?

 

Help me please, Andrew

Re: How to turn on a Blackberry Curve

One of a couple ways...

Press the red key again for a few seconds.

If that doesn't do it... try:
Press the green key for a few seconds.

Some devices vary.

Thanks, the red key worked. I had already tried the green key (which seemed logical).

Why isn't this in the Manual?

Thanks again, Andrew

Re: How to turn on a Blackberry Curve

Sorta odd, huh?

You're not the first to notice. But still odd.
