Do you have a backup to restore to?

I hate to be rude, but the obvious question is, is this your BB or did you find it someplace?

Not sure what you typed but if you used numbers be sure you do the shift or you will get wrong entrys. wiping the BB does not cause any problems for people who have backed up the unit. You do have desktop manager installed I hope.

Ok so now you do have a problem. You will need the software on a PC to reload after a wipe. Do you have the software?

Once it gets wiped you can do nothing except reload via the software
