Hi

I updated the software on my bb, it asked for a restart which i said i would do later, i then turned it off and pulled the battery, now it wont switch back on. I dont have flashing light either. I have tried to plug it into a charge and it still does nothing. Any ideas?

Re: Torch

Try removing the battery, connecting it to the charger then reinsert the battery.

Re: Torch

Sorry about that.  Are you using a wall charger?

Another option:

force the detection of the BlackBerry smartphone using Application Loader

This will try to reload the software.
