I have a black berry 8530 that i haven't been using for about 1 month and now need to use it. I can't get it to power on or charge. Any ideas?

Sounds like something is wrong with the battery. Warranty does cover the battery & of course the phone itself (if the phone has not been exposed to physical or liquid damage). You could take the phone to your local Verizon store.Have someone pop in a new battery to see if it'll take charge. Try a new charger to it in case it is not the battery.  If those 2 things don't work then most likely it is the phone itself.

I had two 8530's that did that after getting real hot. Both had to be replaced. Call tech support or take the phone to a VZW store.
