You erased your wife's BlackBerry. Pulling the battery out during the wipe most likely resulted in your turning the device into a brick.

I would suggest flowers, chocolate and a nice dinner cooked by you.
Hopefully you don't burn dinner like you did to the BlackBerry.

Your device is probably ok. The info on it is gone for good. Hopefully you had a backup. Look in the sites FAQ section on how to install the device OS then restore her backup along with a very sincere apology.

If you type the wrong password 20 times it may give you an award. Dosen't anyone read the book?

I'm amazed that anyone would "try" to find the word blackberry and not realize somethings going to happen especially during password entry.
