    Yeah, after trying to wipe the handset, it tried to reboot and now I am sitting here looking at an hour glass. Is that great or what? I think I may have set a new record for least amount of time it took to screw up a blackberry.

    Hah that sucks. My 8700 is still going strong after a month. You have some serious talent to mess up a 8700. Lol

    Yeah, I know...Here's what happened...
    The battery cover was off the back as I was trying to wipe it, and I must have hit it or something unknowingly...
    The battery came out in the middle of a wipe.
    Now its just sitting here looking like "days of our lives".
    Anyone?

    Well figures, hope I don't offend anyone here, but get transferred to some lady in the tech dept that barely speaks english, and she's responding to me like I am speaking in German.
    Looks like tomorrow I will just take it back to the local Tmobile store and hope that they still have another avaliable and haven't sold out of them, which they probably have.
    Damnit.

    that is easly fixable. you need to reinstall the software. i know tmobile does not yet have the software up for the device. you can download the newest version here. https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...B42B2DBB8F27B6 if you follow my instructions step by step it will fix your BB.

    FYI this will work for any handheld that constantly initializes.. aka the hourglass of doom.

    1. Install the desktop software.
    2. Install the handheld software. If it is a non Vendor software.. exp. T-Mobile. search and delete the "vendor.xml" file.
    3. Pull the battery out of your device.
    4. With the battery out connect the device to the computer.
    5. Go to Options and select "connection settings"
    6. Select USB PIN this may take a few moments since there is no battery in the device. you might even have to select detect device in some rare cases.
    7. Select the application loader icon.
    8. Select all software you want installed.
    9. Proceed to the end portion untill you see the "Finish" button.
    10. Very IMPORTANT. do not hit the finish button, instead select the ADVANCED button.
    11. Make sure both boxes are checked.
    12. Proceed until it asks you if you want to automatically back up and restore. Select DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY BACK UP MY HANDHELD.
    13. Once the process starts. take care not to bumb out the cord and re-insert the battery. Again on some rare occasions you might have to wait until it finishes saying connect to insert the battery.

    THIS MAY FAIL THE FIRST OR SECOND TIME DONT WORRY JUST KEEP TRYING.

    If you do not get it by the 3rd time.. download the Blackberry java developers kit and install it. once installed find the javaloader.exe file and move it into the c:\ directory

    Once it is under the c:\, go to start then run and type. cmd.exe

    after the command prompt apears type in "c:\javaloader -usb wipe" to wipe the handheld

    Yep...Now just need to wait to see if the internet pops up on it.
    For those of you who upgraded, did you have to do anything special to get your internet transferred over to your new bb?
