    Brand New BlackBerry 9780 Won't Turn On

    Hi everyone, I bought a brand new BlackBerry 9780 from a market in Dubai. We got 3 that week from the same guy, so its trusted... they all worked. Don't get me wrong, I tested it at the store. They popped in a battery, turned it on, and it worked in the store. I gave them back their battery (so my accessories were new and packed), got to Toronto, and just tried to change devices and the 9780 doesn't even turn on. No red light, nothing...

    Is there anything I could do or any trouble shooting? I tried the new battery, have left it on charge for a bit, but tried the 9700 battery that I have and it didn't work.

    Thanks in advance... super bummed about this!

    Leave it on the charger for a couple hours, longer if possible and see if that works.

    Yeah, try to charge the battery for a long time. If it still won't work, try a friends or relatives battery and see if they will turn on then, if so, the batteries could be dead for good or they need a different amount of power (Dubai power). Also try charging the batteries plugged into a computer, that could help get the correct power amount.

    that's strange. if it turns on upfront when you test that, it should turn on when you get back in Canada. I'd suggest you check the battery itself it that's the right one for that unit. Is that the one goes to the original package/box?
