First off I'll start by saying that I've had my Blackberry Curve 8310 for around 3-4 months now and I've loved it. Haven't had any problems to date and all that good stuff. Anyways, around yesterday my phone started freezing up with a blank white screen and a little loading symbol (not exactly frozen, but I couldn't do anything while it was happening, the loading symbol was actively rotating) and afterwards I would see a little message that said a security update was complete. I had no idea what or why this was happening and ignored it. This went on to happen a couple times for the rest of the day.
So, this morning I woke up and went to check my phone and found that it really HAD frozen up, this time with a little box with symbols in it and the error message 507, which I later found out meant that there was no OS on the blackberry. So I hooked up the blackberry to the computer, downloaded the desktop manager and attempted to see if there was any way I could just install the OS using the app loader. It at first recognized the Blackberry, but wouldn't let me perform any tasks or anything. I deleted the vendor.xml file and tried again, and this time it wouldn't identify the Blackberry at all. Absolutely nothing, no sound when I connected or disconnected the Blackberry, just nothing. I looked over and saw that instead of the white screen with the error message on it, the Blackberry had turned black with the red light just flashing at the top. It was, and still remains, completely unresponsive. I tried plugging another device into the computer using the same USB cord which worked, and tried switching the USB port with the Blackberry connected, which still didn't. So its not my computer/usb port/usb cable. I tried connecting and wiping the device using JL_cmder but that won't connect to the device either. I charged the Blackberry up and still got nothing. I've done the battery reset as well, and rehooked the Blackberry about 10 times. I've been working on this piece of shit for about 2 hours now and my patience has reached an end. I'm hoping one of you guys would be able to give me some sort of solution so I don't have this dead, useless, flashing blackberry at my side.
Couldn't happen at a worse time too, 2 days into my freshman year of college. Anyways, I'll stop *****ing and thank anyone in advance who can help me with this.
P.S. Sorry for making this thread a frickin novel, but I figure I'll explain what I did, or rather, tried to do so there's no confusion about my predicament.
