PHONE WON'T TURN ON IT IS A BLACKBERrY BOLD 9790. ALL I SEE IS AN EMPTY BATtERY WITH A RED X IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. The phone was fully charged before going to bed last night. this morning it did't matter what I tried, nothing happened. I removed the battery replaced it and plugged it in and all i see in the middle is as stated above. Also can't receive pictures in text messages aeghhh
Solved! Go to Solution.

My son mentioned that perhaps there is an issue with the battery, as i was using my blackberry playbook charger on it? It took almost 7 hours to fully charge the battery again. I think I may have done something to the battery using the PB charger. I guess I will be ordering a new battery to have on hand. Thanks so much for getting back to me. Also, do you have any idea why I cannot get pictures sent via text?

Thank you for your response, even though RIM stated it is safe to do so, it will just charge it faster, I believe it kills the batteries, as others had mentioned in a forum.
Thanks so much for all your help.

I already did! As matter of fact, I did same with the sim card too. Nothing is working. Just now I downloaded the device software but Im still on it, the internet is literally crawling on here. Its frustrating to be without a phone.
