Re: PhONE FROZE DUring software update

Unplug your phone, remove the battery, reinsert the battery and see what happens.  If your phone boots up properly you can try the update again.  If it doesn't boot up properly, plug your phone in to your PC and open BlackBerry Desktop Software.  Your phone should connect with the software in which case you'll be told how to proceed.  If your phone cannot connect to the software, look at this article:
