Sprint, and have already tried to go through their ins. system - huge mess, they got it on my account to do the swap but since it had never been programmed I guess it was not fully attaching, and every time they tried to enter the order it would order my old phone, not the BB. They tried 20 times and it just didnt work.
What's the process of getting it replaced through BB?

You won't get it replaced through BlackBerry, only sprint. PM ME and I will try and help you. If it's within 30 days, you just need to order a return kit. We can check and I can refer you to one of my contacts at sprint to get it resolved.

What do you do when your phone works fine but your pc and bb won't connect?

I am not sure how to perform a hard reset. How do you view KB02141? Also my BB is completely hour glassed of doom and red light flashing. I don't think that it will respond to anything that I press.

Anyone know how to do the hard reset and/or have any other suggestions about what I could try?

A hard reset is just another way of saying remove the battery. (most often while the phone is on) If you follow the Instructions in that article from RIM it will get your software problem corrected 90+% of the time. It may take more then one attempt so be patient. Good luck.

I posted in another thread...but
Hello! I posted in another thread, but don't seem to be going anywhere. I'll make this brief:
Problem: 2 red blinks, pause, 3 red blinks --the phone will not turn on, no hourglass, etc....nothing...just the red light.
I've followed the guides with the exception of the JL wipe because the phone has contacts in it that I must have (didn't do a backup --
Is there ANY WAY to get the contacts off somehow?

I am a total noob to this site. I have been reading almost every thread trying to resolve an issue i am having with a BB 8100, which i found.
It started with a jvm 513 error screen when i found it. I followed instructions on this site to wipe the device . Now i get the 507 with a little box.
I followed your instructions and downloaded the dm and os. DM can detect the BB. I keep following your steps and hit finish then dm starts to add the aps.
As soon as it starts the screen flashes on the bb (this causes the computer to not recognize the bb any more), the red light goes on athe hour glass goes round a couple of times then back to the 507 screen(and then the computer recognizes the bb again). This keeps repeating until another screen pops up in DM saying
" unable to complete the loading operation unspecified error encountered (A:0x00000001) "
I will be forever grateful for any help!!!

Make sure the USB Port you are using to attempt the reload is providing adequate power to your BB. Try a different USB Port and Make sure you are not using a HUB or have Power Saving mode turned for your USB Ports.

Thanks for the quick response. I have now tried to do it on 3 different pc's with the same result.
Any other ideas?

A multiple-socket USB connector that allows several USB-compatible devices to be connected to a computer.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? Anything would be appreciated.
