    I decided to sell my BB Classic after a couple months use as it wasn't fitting what I needed. So I did a security wipe assuming it would take an hour or so to wipe. I was supposed to sell it last night but had to cancel as it was not ready to be sold.

    Here I am 24 hours later and it still not done. I'm too scared to restart it as I know it will just start from the beginning. I've read it could take days! I need a phone though....
    I have tried connecting to BB Link... but as I've never connected it to my mac, it will not recognize the phone when plugged in while running the security wipe.

    I cannot run an autoloader as I have a mac.

    PLEASE someone help shed light on this... I cannot be waiting here for what some people have said they've waited a week plus!? what?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Just reboot device with it hooked up to link and your computer . It will get picked up then, it can take a few tries.

    Boot Camp? Friend with a Windows PC?

    Did you remove memory card before doing security wipe? That can slow it down if not removed before!
