    Amen to that!!! I forgot to mention that I work at an elementary school (yes, some say I am crazy) but it is a very happy place to be!!!!! I love my quiet time with BBOS at night until hubby grumbles, he is not bb addicted!

    Hey Cruz, I bricked first, then wiped to restore! I bricked my phone less than 1 week after purchase! It is my first bb and I bought it off ebay to use on Alltel, (I am now officially merged to VZ) I panicked when it happened and thought I had royally messed it up. I reactivated my palm treo for a week until I searched the internet and found this site to fix it! Then I realized you don't live til you brick a berry!!! THANKS TO ALL HERE!!!!!

    Yes, and there is no need to wipe unless you are experiencing problems. I used to all the time, now I only do it when there is an issue.

    For those that want to do it to feel better, that is no problem either. It is just another tool to help you fix your BB when needed.

    So, in conclusion to orio and the rest I hope that alleviates some confusion.

    You may find this hard to belive, I've never bricked my Storm. I loaded, installed, and deleted almost every OS released. In the same breath, I do not run 3rd party software nor have I ever wiped. Just wondering if there may be a correlation between the two.

    If Verizon or RIM were to release software, and instruct users to "wipe" before installing the forthcoming OS's. I would then give it some consideration.
    The v6 148-90 that BBCM released, I installed from Blackberry.com a fresh 75 OS through the DM. Then installed a 148 base, put the v6-90 over that an havent looked back....not one error code or prompt, including restore functions...go figure?

    Absolutely, and you shouldn't have a problem either. either way it gets wiped.
    But like I said, it is a tool for those out there who either have a glitch in the load, get bricked, etc.
    Otherwise you wont need it.

    Thanks Neo, and to all who shared their experience. Great points made by all...even Bryan.
