Hi Hashin5858,


You're going to want to follow the instructions in the following KB article:


KB33480 - BlackBerry 10 smartphone does not boot and displays a Phone with USB icon after an interru...


That should get you back up and running!


(Note: If you can't get it to work, make sure the BlackBerry Link software is fully shut down by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del on your computer, then go to the Task Manager, and under the Processes tab, shut down all BlackBerry related processes).

If you want to thank someone for their comment, do so by clicking the Thumbs Up icon.

If your issue is resolved, don't forget to click the Solution button on the resolution!
