    My classic is less then a year old and had been freezing, restarting and random calling so my carrier sent it to bb to get fixed. Three days upon it's return back to myself, it locked me out saying I had entered the password too many times and stated a security swipe. The phone is still swiping ..AND ITS OVER 24 HRS LATER. HELP!!!!!!

    Some people have had theirs take several days. Just be patient.

    Can you see the percent complete continue to climb?

    It gets slower as it gets near 100%.

    If you're absolutely desperate, there are some other things we can try, but the best thing to do at this point is to let it finish.

    ok, I'll give it maybe another 8 hrs and if it doesn't complete I'll need to try another approach. Thanks!

    Remove your SD card if you have one, and do a hard reset (hold down both volume buttons until reboot). Security wipe will resume but may complete more quickly.

    The next step would be to try running an autoloader.

    the SD card has already been removed. I will try the hard reset and see what happens..
