    okie dokie my phone crashed on the install of .109. White screened out, with Error 205 on the screen. Problem is now my PIN is lost and comp doesn't seem to be able to find the BB. I tried a battery pull, tried leaving battery out and plugged into the computer....no PIN, no BB even recognized.

    So how do I get a pin back to reinstall??

    your help is always appreciated

    actually.....it all just came back after trying to do the app exe again....ironiclly the app exe program on my comp froze....it does that sometimes....and the phone went to clock then main screne and booted up just fine with .109 which was what I was trying to upgrade to in the first place

    oooh yea, i hate trusting these back up things :P

    I did a 4.5 upgrade for a friend last week, and her calendar was nowhere to be found... and i did two back up files, and the auto restore during the upgrade. calendar wasn't even in the back up files! wierdest thing i've ever had.

    yea.....I got like 3 backups already and plan on making another one tonight after all this.....every plan needs a plan B, part of each plan is to take steps to prepare for plan c, d, e, and f.....etc.

    yea, working on pc's in the past has made me a data preservation obsessive. I make like two backups before each upgrade, and one right after, lol.

    It will prolly burn and melt now cause its not finished reloadin my apps....but got my back ups back on the phone....watched the apps load and the phone is re-booting right now.....I think it will be okay it just takes a while to restart when you load like 10 apps

    YAY! my first BB melt down crisis and I totally handled it myself and didn't freak out! THANKS CRACKBERRY!
