    I have an 8830 world edition.

    The battery I have just died and will not recharge for some reason... Its plugged into a charge at the moment with the charge symbol, but is completly dead. It will turn on as long as its plugged in but when I unplug it... off goes the BB.

    Charging it on a USB plug...


    Its been being used as a modem for my laptop for the past 6 hours then just turned off...

    anyone have this happen?

    Could it be that when being used as a modem the recharge rate doesn't catch up to the load of using the EVDO antenna for that long. Even though you are only connecting when you download or refresh something, it may be too much for the battery under such long loads.

    I would have just shut down the 8830 and tried recharging for at least an hour before attempting to restart, but kept on recharging until full. Or even better just recharged overnight.
