You might catch BRICKED case.

My 9860 dead 3 weeks ago. Same symptoms.

 

Why RIM never hear/answer these desperate question?

  Same here. Except this was on a 9810. Woke up one morning with it not wanting to turn on. I tried literally everything and nothing worked. Here is what I did, I sent the **bleep** phone back and waiting on a replacement. I have BlackBerry Protect and sent a command to format the phone if they get it started so my personal stuff is erased.

 

  I havent been able to contact BlackBerry because I just ended up sending it back and I got a replacement on the way from the place I got it from.

  Look up how to start the phone in safe mode if that even works. Otherwise, same situtation. Im using a old crapy Nokia phone till I get mine in a day or so. Ahh, and the thing is there are no BlackBerry techs to answer these and hopefully send out an update

 Thats sad, they lost two customers and they don't even look into it. No updates, no support.. I'm on T-Mobile with no iPhone option, so sucks for me.

This happened to my phone. It eventually turned back on but only for an hour or so. It kept doing this until it took a matter of days to turn back on. I sent it away for repair. Apparently its happening to a lot of blackberrys due to a software issue. Neither vodafone repairs or blackberry repairs could fix my phone, I had to be sent a replacement. This was 2 months ago, I've only just got my new phone because so many have this issue...
