bold 9700 starting issue

For reasons to extensive travels I didn't use my Bold 9700 for some time - 3 or 4 weeks.

Recently I've put it on the charger and some time tried to start the phone, but noting happened - just the red light on the right upper corner blinking. Tried to remove and put back the battery with very much the same result.

Re: bold 9700 starting issue

I am suspecting its a Battery issue.
As battery do lose charges over-time when they are not in used.
Try and see if charging for one hour has any difference.
