    At the carrier I work for, if a "bricked" phone call comes through tech support, one of the ways I have helped get the phone working is to remove the battery, plug it in to the computer **the computer does not have to recognize it** and proceed to reinstall the OS.

    Welcome to BBOS bigkarl!

    If thatdoes not work, as soonas I get home I will post a link that will walkyou through the process of unbrickimg your device. It is an easy process to do and will have you on your way in about an hour. I should be home in the next hour or so.

    Bigkarl,

    Below you will find 2 links...the first one will tell you how to unbrick your phone and the second will tell you how to load the operating system should you need it. Both are excellent tutorials.

    How-To Recover A Nuked Blackberry - with Pictures

    All In One Guide - How To Upgrade Your Device - with Pictures & Videos

    Good luck and let us know how it went

So i tried to download bbsak and at the end of the download a error comes up saying " A network error occured while attempting to read the file" . I dont know what to do now my pc just wont recognize the bb

    Did you remove the vendor file after you installed to your computer?

    bigkarl,

    The last link in my signature, "How to recover a nuked BB"...hit that link and folow the steps in it. I'm guessing that while you were trying to load the operating system earlier, you unplugged before it was completed.

    If your pc is not recognizing your device, it sounds like you have bricked it. Follow this link to see if you can get the connection established.

    If you follow the link I posted above, it will work around a bricked device and get it unbricked in order to load the operating system.

    It will take several attempts to do this, as you need to time it just right when the loader screen comes up where it recognizes your device. I once had to do it 19 times on a friends bb in order to get it. Timing is key here.

    Just close the loader application and then restart it. To play it safe, unplug the device from the usb cable and plug it back in as you need to as per the instructions.

    Be patient karl, this could be a quick process or a long one....depends all in the timing. Don't forget to remove you battery btw as you are doing this
