    Bricked 9900

    A couple of weeks ago, I was getting a new app (ubersocial) via desktop manager and it asked me if I wanted my OS updated to 7.1 if I remember correctly. I clicked yes and everything was going well until the end when it was randomly interrupted & phone screen turned black. I tried turning it on on with no luck so I pulled the batter out...and nothing. The only thing it does is flashes a red light when plugged into my laptop.
    I've tried everything or almost and no luck. I had faith in the application loader wizard, but then once it gets to "communication port selection" nothing happens. I've sat there & waited for 10-15 minutes and nothing. My laptop doesn't even make a sound when my BB is plugged it...but it does when other devices are plugged in so I know my usb ports are functional. I'm using
    Vista 64 bit operating systems on my computer. I can't return my phone to my cellphone service provider because I'm abroad. It's really getting to me because I've spent 500 # CDN on this phone only to have it fail me after 4 months and I hate using a Motorola phone.

    Hey Kaylib, Welcome to the community. Sorry to hear your having issues but the good thing is that ony in very few cases and circumstances will a blackberry not be recoverable,

    This thread will show how to reload the software. How-To Recover A Nuked Blackberry - with Pictures

    I would recommend that you uninstall and reinstall the blackberry software and reboot prior to trying this as your having a communications issue.

    hope this helps out. post back if your still having issues.

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I was following that thread, but then stopped at the first paragraph because my phone does not show the
    hourglass display. It a plain black.

    I know it may sound odd, but do you have a different battery that you can try? or have you made sure the battery is fully charged?

    The blackberry will pull power from the usb when running the app loader but during the process it will reboot and the battery needs to take over otherwise the device will fail to reconnect.

    I don't have a different battery but when my this happened to my phone (a little over 2 weeks ago) it was fully charged and it has been off since then. I've tried doing it without the battery and still nothing.

    I see. And whats the status on the uninstall, reinstall, reboot?

    If its a communication error form the pc to the berry it could be a driver issue. removing and reinstalling would make sure those drivers are up to date.

    You mean on my BB? there is no status. Plain black. It does not turn on at all unless when plugged into computer it gives flashing red. I tried the apploader to install a new OS but it won't even detect my phone. I've tried uninstalling & intalling my USB drivers and nothing. Tried plugging my BB to an another computer and nothing.
