I have had my blackberry 9700 since June of 2010 and within in the past week I noticed when I charge the phone it doesn't add more bars. You see the charge symbol but no additional bard are added after being plugged in for 30 minutes.

Is this a sign of the battery dying?

Even a very old battery should still charge. It just won't last as long. Might be the phone itself. At least the battery is replaceable so you can go that route to see if it is the battery.
Did you try resetting it? Pull the battery out while it's on.

Looks like it's over, I took the battery out this morning and tried to recharge it and now the phone won't even come on.

So now I'm forced to make a upgrade and get a new blackberry with the touch screen and the key pad
