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.

Welcome to the forums and sorry to hear about your issue.
Are you still only seeing the red light on your device? If this is the case then you can try using the steps in the following article to try and reload your BlackBerry device software.
Let us know if this helps.
