My Blackberry Bold 9900 does not work anymore

Hello, my name is Paula. I'm just writing to say how deeply dissapointed I am. I have had 6 different blackberries in my life, including pearl, curve and a couple of Bold. I was in love with blackberry till I bought the Bold 9900 a year ago. After 6 months it stopped working, just showed the red led light but did not turn on. I fixed it but after a year it happened again, this time has definitely died. It is a new phone, it cannot be fixed. Then as I bought it in the US but live in Argentina nobody feels responsible, nobody cares so I'll have to buy another phone. This time of course it is not going to be a blackberry. Deeply sad.

Thank you, but it does not work, when I try to update the software it says that BB desktop cannot communicate with the BB and then if I click on update, it does not find any...

Hello paularicchio, 

 

If this process is not working then you will want to contact your point of sale or mobile service provider for options.
