You can only know that when you open up the blackberry and inspect the motherboard, i suspect that the most of the motherboard is broken.
Since the charger bit is on the motherboard, i think the whole motherboard needs to be replaced. Not a cheap thing

do you have a rough idea of the motherboard prices, is it worthy trying to repair it

Hi tapiwab,

Generally, if the mainboard is blown then the phone is a write-off. It would be cheaper to replace the handset than to repair it. I've seen them on eBay in a USED condition, but not new.

Hope this helps,

Mike
