    Sounds like its bricked. Did you attempt an OS update or add a new theme today?

    You probably downloaded a 4.5 OS theme onto your 4.2 OS 8700. This is not good. You must wipe your device and install a new OS with a PC using BlackBerry Desk Top Manager. I'm at work, so I'm WAP, but someone will give you the instructions.

    If you don't wanna wipe your phone's OS and restart from scratch I would provide another solution. I would hook up your phone was it without the battery? while connected to your pc or before rebooting your device I'm not quite sure but I know you can bring your bb back to life and get rid of that pesky theme. You could also try my way and run crack util and find the theme and delete it. I once created a nasty theme and it almost bricked my phone so I know from experience. That is if it is in fact the theme that's causing the problem. Good luck
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    Here's the link for the application. It's free and very reliable. I fixed my bb in 2 minutes using the application Crackutil

    it's a very self explanatory application. Good luck dude

    gooner, in my signature in the Technical Support Blog link, you'll find a thread to download and use jl_cmndr. Use this to wipe your device and then you'll be able to reinstall the OS. Just make sure you have the OS downloaded and installed on your PC and ready to go. You can find a link for that in my blog as well.

    Post back with any more questions.

    Roger
