last night i opened the desktop manager and it said i had updates. so i clicked on updates and it started updating. the problem is that i didnt know it would wipe my blackberry. so now i cant use anything and when i plug it into the computer it doesnt detect it. does anyone know how to fix this?

Rim support states that the password was entered wrong and therefor the JVM error 513.
Hopfully you have a backup because it also suggests an OS reload and restore from the backup.

Good luck

I know a lot of people seem to be having this error problem but mine is slightly different. Like other people i entered the wrong password ten times which i dont know how because I have never used a different password, and it wiped the phone. It then went on to say JVM error 513 reset.
I have tried downloading the desktop software and what I think is the OS for the phone but have been unsuccessful in any change happening. Does it matter if the phone is used with a prepaid simcard with Optus? I bought the phone off ebay a few days a go.
When I go to the desktop software and go to the application loader, it is completely empty and won't let me go to the next stage? I have deleted it and re-downloaded it again and it is exactly the same.
Please if anyone can help from here I would be extremely grateful.
