    Blank as in just a white screen? If you unplugged the device anytime during an OS upgrade (such as just a blank white screen), then you corrupted the OS.

    If you follow the instructions correctly, you should be fine. The one thing about a BB is that they are hard to make into a paper weight. Even if an OS upgrade gets jacked up, it can be recovered.

    BTW, you might want to edit your profile to correct the device model/carrier. Tmobile doesn't have the 8830.

    oh- and never intterupt an OS upgrade! It will look dead for a while, but it's just doing it's thing. Wait till it's done and then unplug it!
