    Started a security wipe 30 hours back. It's at 98% for last 7 hours. Should I keep my fingers crossed and wait? Or is something wrong?
    Am new to Blackberry device. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Reboot it. 99% chance it has completed and it's just stuck. Not like you have to worry about data loss, you were wiping it anyway.

    You mean battery removal and then switching it on? Thanks.

    Press both volume buttons until phone reboots.

    You should only have to hold for about 20 seconds to try and force a reboot.

    The alternative to the volume kicker press suggested by Conite is to long press on the power button.
    Typically the device will boot and re initiate the wipe but it usually speeds through much more quickly.
    I have had success with a second reboot but I've never had to hold beyond 20 seconds.

    If the reboots fail to start device... connect to your PC and open BBLINK. Try a long press on the power button while connected to Link. This may force recognition of device and then allow you to use Link to reload OS.

    If this still fails you will be better served by an autoloader.

    Tried reboot using long press power key (say 15 to 20 seconds) and reboot or security wipe started again. Hoping to see it complete soon this time. Current OS in system is 10.3. 2.2836. { Even after 48hrs after initial wipe the system was at 99 percent. It took 24 hrs or more to reach 99 percent from 97 percent} Hope this second reboot or wipe completes soon. Thanks everybody for your suggestions. Will keep you updated.
