    New Battery - Zero Charge??


    Picked up a new (spare) battery (RIM OEM) for my 8300. Unfortunately, when I install it, even with the phone plugged into the charger, the phone will not boot up. The rep. (at an internet accessory dealer) says that I need to charge the battery for at least 6 hours.

    My question is do RIM batteries really come with zero charge and shouldn't the phone boot up when plugged into the charger??

    thanks for any info

    Depending how long he had it in store, but since it's for the curve, looks like it has been used before

    It still needs a little bit of charge to boot up, whether the charger is plugged in or not

    It wouldn't surprise me to that it has zero charge, every single Curve we get at the store has only had about 10% or so on the battery, we've been charging them up when we get them but it's a pain.

    With all phones, if the battery is compleatly dead it usually takes about 10-15 minutes or so for it to build up enough of a charge to turn on and stay on.
