    help!!

    Advertisement



    I just bought an at&t blackberry curve from a guy off of craigslist. My intention was to unlock it so that I could use it on t-mobile. And he told me the battery wasn't charged so I thought nothing of it. Well I get to work and hook it up to a wall charger and its not charging and the led indicator is not blinking. And its not turning on at all.

    Is there something that I can do or did I just get scammed?

    Well let's start with the most obvious question: Is the battery in the phone? Is it in correctly?

    Yes he was a local sale. And I have his phone number and e-mail address. I have already texted him telling him there is a problem with the phone not powering on.

    I'm feeling a little bit better. The guy messaged me back saying that it might be the battery, and that he is charging another blackberry or battery up, so that this can get resolved. And he said I have his word. So hopefully he stays good on his word.

    Yeah, I'm lucky I got it also or I would have been stuck up the creek without a paddle. Lol. But just keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out. But he sounds like he works with phones and promised to get it resolved.

    Lmao no I'm not destructive. Just in case something happens to this one, I can have a working phone, while a new one is being shipped out

    Why don't you just get an older BB for cheap or a pearl or something. By you buying another curve, it is one less curve that a new user can have. You are creating a monopoly. Lol. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You could always buy a battery from AT&T and test it out? I think they are refundable as well. That sucks if the bb is actually broken. Good luck.
