Hi I have the blackberry torch 9800. It was working fine but kept freezing every now and then,
I was using my phone then it died, like if it ran out of battery. I plugged it into charge but nothing happened, I have brought a new batter and plugged it in and sill nothing, I have tried to plug it into the computer and reboot the Os but still nothing, there isn't even a red light that flashed when it is plugged in.
When my phone was working I did upgrade the software to the latest.
Is there anything that I could do to fix it??

First of all, make sure you're plugging your phone in to a wall outlet with the supplied charging cord. USB hubs on PCs and car chargers are not optimal for charging.
Next, if you're already doing that, try connecting to BlackBerry Desktop Software to see what it has to say; you might have a corrupt OS and connecting to BDS will inform you of that. If you're having trouble connecting to BDS, have a look at this article:

I have tried plugging it into the wall outlet and my computer isn't detecting the phone at all. The BlackBerry software isn't detecting my phone.
I have plugged another BlackBerry that is fully working into the computer to see if it was my computer that wasn't working but it worked fins so it has to be my phone.

Did you attempt the steps outlined in the article I quoted in my response?

It sounds like your phone is facing some pretty serious issues. Unless others here have some advice that I'm missing, how about having a look at what they're saying over at Crackberry. I don't usually post links to other sites, but there's a good article over there on how to reload the OS to a nuked BlackBerry. If it'll help you, then it's worth posting it here.
Let us know if that helps you.

Well it seems that way and looking at what crackberry describe as a nuked blackberry, my phone doesn't match the description, when power is connected there is no red light or anything, the screen doesn't change at all.
