I am trying to figure out if my new curve 8900 has a hardware or software issue. I plug it in and charged it for 5 hours. But it won't turn on, even when plugged in.
Thing is, I don't have my sim card with me, not sure if the phone is screwed or that it just won't turn on without a sim card.

Yes the device will power on. It will just show "Insert SIM Card" or a similar message at the top of the screen.
Are you charging it with the USB cable or the wall charger? Can you try removing the battery for around 30 seconds and then putting it back in?

No, it won't power up with out the battery, even if it is plugged into the charger.
It will do so without the SIM card.

Can you try putting another battery in and see if it charges?
