Unhappy BB8520 not booting,Activation Error 523

Please Login to Remove!

My friend has been using a BB8520 for a while now but suddenly, the device won't come up. It displays activation error 523, and gives option of resetting which when tried does not work. I have tried removing the battery and fixing it back. Please help!

Actually, Sometimes you can fix a 523 with a battery pull. What should I do with App Error 523? - BlackBerryFAQ

Can take 2 or 3 tries. The hard part is finding the corrupt file or downloaded app that causes it.
