Wow, am I annoyed. A whole day just got wasted when two different BlackBerrys (8330, Storm) apparently died. So I spent hours looking for a possible solution, finally deciding for no good reason to plug them into a different machine.
Guess what? They *then* decided to boot. Plugged them back into the first machine, and they’re fine. And no, it wasn’t the USB ports, because I tried other devices in the same ports and they worked fine.
I think this was yet another example of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager just not working, which happens a *lot*. They’re working now, which is a relief, since I thought I’d bricked them.
