Default 7130e verizon - won't boot up

Please Login to Remove!

I've tried to pull the battery, wait 30 secs and then put it back in and the phone just goes to white screen, then to the splash screen that shows Verizon Wireless with a red symbol and an animated hour glass, but won't go past there. Verizon is going to send me a replacement phone, but I have a bunch of passwords stored in the bb password program, I also have a lot of to do items in my Pocketday Lists and there was no way to back it up either.

Any ideas?

If you have NOT previously back up then you might loose all the data....

Download and instal Jl_Cmder (it's in my sig) and wipe the device (everything gone in a flash!)

Install the OS and restore any previous backup

Hope this helps!

How do I download and install a program if I can't connect to blackberry desktop? I connect my laptop to the phone and it says disconnected.

You do not need Desktop Manager for Jl_Cmder to work!

It downloads to the PC.......

Download it, plug BB in and run the app

Nope, no workie. Tried twice to wipe the device and it doesn't work. The hourglass just keeps going round and round.

Then Jl_Cmder should work just fine.... I assume you have plugged the BB in then ran Jl_Cmder without desktop manager open?

I got it to work.

I had to start the wipe command when the battery was out of the phone before the phone had a chance to go to that verizon wireless page.

Now I have a plain white screen with a symbol with a line through it. Is it possible I got a virus on this phone somehow?

What now? I imagine I need to install the operating system but don't know what to do.

No virus! that is what you should have now after wiping it....

Download the current OS from your carrier and install it on the PC.... Then open DM and then Application Loader and reinstall!!!

Sorry for the confusion. I meant that I wondered if I was hit by a virus that made my phone lock up.

What causes this? Corruption in the OS or what?

Corrupted OS... Bad install of an app on the ribbon, plenty of things that can cause it, one of which is NOT a virus as there are non for the BB OS......

You're the man. I reinstalled the desktop software and the OS and I'm at the factory default settings. Should I do a restore? At least I'd get back my passwords from BB password keeper. Would that possibly corrupt the OS again?

Yes you can resore the backup now..... Many issues could have caused it.... Bad install of an App. bad deletion of an app, conflict between the apps and the OS.....

Glad you are back up!

I have a strong suspicion that this was caused by either the 2007 patch from blackberry for daylight savings Tim, or from PocketDay.

The Dst patch made my phone take forever to boot and it froze up the first time.

Also, I downloaded PocketDay and I've gotten lockups as well, the goto button isn't working, and I get error messages all the time.

The guys at pocketday had me run a utility that clears settings and after I downloaded the non wap professional version again it seems to work ok.
