Default Hourglass- Blackberry froze on boot

Please Login to Remove!

Blackberry 7280 ATT

Every once in a while when connecting with jmirc I get a bad dns error which taking out the battery and restarting my phone fixes. Well last night after replacing the battery all I have is an hourglass while my phone is booting. Can not connect with desktop sofware either. Any help would be appreciated.

- Remove the battery and plug the device into the computer using the USB cable
- From desktop manager run Application loader on the second screen shot place the battery back into the device immediately click next, next, next until it says finish and click finish on the Application Loader

(You have like 6 sec to do this)
-This will update the device…make sure phone service is checked when setting the update
-This should resolve the hour glass issue.
