Phone dead

My 8830 Global Phone is one year old and has worked perfectly.  I removed battery and reinserted and phone will not reset and open.  The battery is charged, phone is on and red message light (upper right corner) continues to blink 3-4 times each interval.  Any suggestions, Sprint kiosk was not helpful.  Thank you!
