    Corrosion!!! how long did you leave it on the charger? The battery might be cooked, i would clean all of the green corrosion out of the BB and then put a new battery in. In the future dont leave it on the charger overnight, the battery will charge in a few hours and you are shortening the life by constantly overcharging it. Also try to wait until it is low before charging it, dont just throw it on a charger whenever your home.

    I left the phone connected to the charger for about 1h and a half max.

    Take the battery out and use a toothbrush (a clean one) and brush out the acid corrosion. next use the same toothbrush or another clean one and dip it in some coca cola, brush off the terminals on the battery. if the battery hasn't busted open, you may still be able to use it. just make sure you dry it off before you put the batery back in the BB.

    oh sorry I completely misunderstood this, I thought you meant when you turned it on around the battery ICON, not the battery itself, sorry. Yes it doesn't sound good. Not sure what would create this issue, but think it's time for a new battery (and personally I would get a new charger also just to prevent it from happening again).

    All happened is this. When i plugged it to the charger, the phone restarted some how. So i was like, oh it will turn back on and charge. And about the battery, it is not opened from what i can see.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I didn't think that could still happen! So a note to all *charge your battery ONLY when it's low* and it will last longer. Am I wrong?

    Re: What happened to my pearl?

    So i went to the ATT store, and the guy that was helping me, said that the battery should be alright and it might be just an OS issue. For now the phone is charging and we will see what happens. But i have one more question, what does it means when the LED indicator is pink? Coz light green is for low battery, red is for msgs.

    No i do not. Oh and couple min ago i tried to charge my phone and the little charging icon on my phone has gone after like 3 min of charging so i went and plugged the charger to another outlet and after another 3 min, the charging icon is gone. So now i dont know if its the battery or the charger.

    either the battery or the charging unit inside the BB... let's hope it's just a bad battery
