    Well, it is what it is! Thanks everyone. I guess it could be worse, so I won't complain. Thank you again, Anthony

    the same thing happened to my my friend tried to get into my phone and then he gave me the phone & it said wiping, after a while it wiped everything i guess and left me with a blank screen, i sent it back and got a new one and the same thing happened except i took out the battery quickly before it wiped everything & i need my contacts. now everytime i put my battery in it starts wiping, so i've been using an old phone but still paying 30 a month for a plan i want to, but can't get out of, help?

    your contacts are pretty much gone. do you want to use your berry or get out of your plan? who is your carrier?

    Wow, some friend! Did you ask him if he'd ever been beaten with a wiping Berry? This is why my BB stays on me, with me! When someone asks to see it I say "you don't look with your fingers!"
