We do not support MFI nor do we discuss it. It is illegal software and use at your own risk.

I would venture to guess that the device is done for.

You've bricked it. Almost all errors on a BlackBerry are recoverable, but when you mess with something like MFI, it's over.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is MFI and what is it supposed to do?

It is software illegally obtained from RIM that allows you to program a BlackBerry.

And in the hands of the inexperienced, you can see what happens. Nothing good, that's for sure!

What the hell are you guys talking about, inexperienced I get that but II clearly stated that my phone got bricked with Desctop software not with MFI.
You are all so arogant, I just asked for some assistance.
Thos isn't a forum to help members it's a forum so that more experienced people can make fun of us.

Again and again My PIN WAS DESTROYED VIA DESCTOP MANAGER V5.0
NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS.
IT WAS ONLY AFTER THAT I TRIED MFI.


SO AGAIN FIRST DESCTOP AND THEN MFI.
HOPE I WAS CLEAR ENOUGH AND THANK YOU ALL EXCEPT A VERY FEW FOR HELPING AND MAKING FUN.......

Welcome [back] to the forum.

Your device may have been 'bricked' with Desktop Manager, but it was definately done in by using MFI.

Sorry, but there isn't anything anyone here can do to help you. Time to shop for a new device.
