    Advertisement



    I have put a new battery into my 8700 ,same build,same type,same voltage.. all I get is when i start the bb is the image of a battery with a cross on it.

    I got another battery ,but the same thing , seller told me to charge it ,I charged for 6-7 hours staright, ,now even he's in a fix.

    Any clues ?

    U absoultely sure it's for that version of BB? It's probably a bad battery.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    I have had this issue with 3rd party vendors. that symbol tells you that the device does not recognize there is a battery installed. Although it COULD be that dead, I stood in one store and tried 3 batteries in a curve that they insisted were correct. Walked into TMO and popped in a battery and the device came right up.

    I didn't know there are batteries for specific versions. I thought bbs are all generic , well I compared it to mine,voltage,size everthing's the same.

    Garfy , I am not that lucky but I guess third time's the charm. I will go tomorrow and check out.

    I have to ask for specific model ?

    Yes, not all BB batteries work in all devices, they are device specific....Even though they may look the same they are not....

    nailed it , finally after trying 3-4 other places, i got mine.

    I almost got ripped off, a vendor tried selling it me for 1800($40) , but then I hunted around some more and finally got on more Rs. 850 yeye

    thanx you guys
