    My 8300 (which has been acting up lately) is now stuck on a white screen with an odd symbol with a circle,square and triange with a line through it and the # 507 at the bottom. This looks like a something you would see on Lost.
    I have tried hard resetting and connecting to laptop...it is not recognized and doesn't move from this screen.
    Any suggestions?

    Yes 507 error usually happens if you messed up on a leaked OS update your phone is bricked but there's tons off threads here and on pinstack that help you fix that...

    Sal,

    There's a thread in the FAQ link in my signature with instructions on what to do when your device isn't recognized. Reboot your PC first, then follow the instructions in that thread.

    Please post back if you have questions.

    Regards,
    Roger

    That was harrowing

    I did have to go back and input info to get DM to work w/out recognizing the BB and install the OS and the backup data.....I lost a few apps, but I am adding those as we go.
    Thanks for all the help.
    Congrats to you and Cowboy on becoming Moderators RoGro.....you two have helped several times and are greatness.

    Cowboy

    Hey Cowboy,
    I saw in a Texas thread that you were from El Paso.....small world. I am the original juero from east EP (Eastwood). I am an old fart (44), but I am sure you know Fred's in Juarez.

    I am from Texas but have never lived in El Paso. My Mom is in Alpine which is pretty close and I spent a few nights in El Paso and have heard of freds but never been there. My Texas back ground is spread out. I was born in Eastland, grew up in Stephenville, Lived in Arlington,Carrollton, Huckaby,Seldon,Rio Vista, Gordon and Alpine. I bet you are now sorry you asked.. And if 44 is old I am not far behind I will be 40 this year.
