    Sorry to hear man, about a week ago my BB was flipping out... Would turn on, and as soon as it would get to the homescreen, hard reset, and kept doing it for like 2hrs. Then I unplugged my wireless router and the phone worked fine... WTF? Totally, off-topic, but I know how ya feel. I was ready to cry... :cry:
    I really hope you get it working, I honostly think it will.. Soumds like a battery problem. Update? Whats goin on with it?

    Nope but I solved the problem. I went on AT&T premier just playing around and they have 8310 REFURBS now!

    I just bought a red 8310 for $99.

    I'm so happy

    Brooke - if you haven't tossed it yet, hang on to the "dead" one. There's a good chance it's just the battery, even though you tried the charger. If the battery is shorted out internally, it's not going to work at all, regardless of external power. When you get your new phone (refurb) you might want to try charging up the new phone's battery and swapping it into your old phone to see if it works.

    Yes , there is a very high likelyhood that that would work. You should try it.

    Re: Help me; is it ruined?

    Actually...the supposed death by LiIon battery turned out to be a hoax. The Korean Times originally reported that a man had been found dead with an exploded and burning cellphone in his shirt pocket. Turns out that the dead man had been accidentally killed by a co-worker who backed an excavator into the victim. In a moment of panic, he made up the story about the exploding cell phone to cover up the accident. See article at:

    http://blacktown.yourguide.com.au/ar...src=topstories

    BUT: LiIon batteries CAN explode, and are known to periodically overheat and self-destruct. I have a feeling that's what happened in your case. If the heat wasn't too severe, the phone may be fine. Certainly worth a try!
