Phone shut off

I have a blackberry bold(not sure what model) but its definitely like 2yrs old. It was my aunts old one and she has 4 little kids so it's pretty beat up. Anyway the phone shut off (had like half battery) in the middle of a text and now it won't turn back on. The red light in the corner just stays on. I've tried everything I can think of so someone please help!

Re: Phone shut off

Connect it to the wall outlet charger for a couple of hours, and then with it STILL CONNECTED to the charger, remove the battery a minute and reinsert to reboot.
