    Help me; is it ruined?

    Advertisement



    So today I had my bb in my pocket and I noticed it was getting VERY hot. I didn't pay it any attention and placed it on the car seat next to me. When I got out of the car to go into a store, I grabbed it to take it with me and it was so hot I could barely touch it!

    It then turned itself off and I haven't been able to get a response out of it since. It won't respond to the charger, battery pulls, NOTHING! I took it to AT&T and they couldn't get it to come on either.

    What happened? I'm really heartbroken right now...

    sounds like there was a short with your battery and caused the phone to over heat. did at&t try to use a different battery on your phone to try to turn it back on? if not you could take the battery out and use the wall charger to give it power and see if it comes on

    i have read a couple of posts about the same thing happening...and it was faulty battery connectors. have you bought a new battery, just to rule out a bad batter?

    They told me that they didn't sell BB batteries and did not have one they could test it with. He told me to try some store down the way called Batteries Plus but they were closed by the time I got there...

    I will go try a wall charger real quick...


    *edit*

    Plugged it into the charger and the LED flashed red once. Nothing since; I'm going to leave it plugged in for a few...

    Let us know what happened after you tried charging it.
    Is it still under warranty?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~From my experience ATT is pretty good about replacing faulty equipment. Replaced my 8700. All they wanted to know was if I got it wet.

    I would think manufacturer would cover the phone for a year. But maybe not, AT&T did not have at least one battery in the store to helo you test it? Sounds messed up to me.
