    Curve 8900 won't turn on

    So I have this curve from a family friend and it just died out of no where on her and it wont come on, I get a solid red light when I plug it into my computer without the battery in and the same with the battery in but the red light sometimes goes off, now I tried my storm battery in it and it has a red light on that blinks but for longer period then a normal red or green blink, can anyone help?

    Unfortunately it doesn't sound like there's a whole lot you can do other than trying to wipe it and reinstall the OS. The good news is that you are getting that red light. So the device is getting power, the battery isn't bad. Just bricked.

    Try taking the battery out of the phone, then connect it to your computer.

    Still wont see the phone, my computer makes that doo doo noise a lot so it must see it and then rapidly not see it over and over, red light on for a few and then off... I had the app error 523 with an old curve and I was able to get it through apploader but this time its not the case...
