    7100 Problem

    Advertisement



    To All,

    Great forum!! You guys are the BOMB!!
    Ok..enough sucking up, I just bought a 7100, and I plugged in to charge it, and got like a flashing red light (on the top), but it wouldnt let me power up the BB. I waited and un plugged and then re plugged it in, and now I get a green light flashing, but still cant turn it on. Do I have to like hold the button down forever?? Is it possible the battery is so dead it wont come on? I have my sim from my other phone in it, but I dont think having a sim card in it would make any difference to starting up the BB?
    Am I crazy, or just impatient!!

    FWIW. When I first turned on my 7100i, I had to wait. It seemed like 1 to 2 min. And the screened showed an hourglass.

    Hi and welcome!

    The light will go red when the battery is about to run out. Green when you have sufficient charge.

    It will also turn red when you get a message or miss a call, or various other reasons.

    Once you have a green light you should have enough charge to turn it on. Quick question, do you have a sim in the bb?

    Come to find out, the battery must have been really dead. I let iit sit for a few hours and then tried it, and it finally started up. I also was getting a invalid sim card, but found out that I was installing it backwards. It works fine now...

    Thanks

    maleboog, I know I already said this, but apparently in the loss of data, it got whacked. Anyway, Welcome to PinStack, and Glad you got it working.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Is your 7100t unlocked?
