The Blackberry PB problem is that once the battery gets really run down and then left for several days, it will never charge again. No sign of life. Not SOD, but Death. Apparently it needs the processor to manage the charging, but the processor can't run on a dead battery. There are tricks to bring it back, but they don't always work.
The reason I mention this is because a friend had this happen after neglecting her PB. She just gave up on it and bought a Vox because primarily she wanted to read books.
