Thanks a ton!

KB19915 How to perform a clean reload of BlackBerry smartphone application software using BlackBerry Desktop Software on a Mac computer

OK so I've updates to OS5 and turned my phone back in, it has a different loading screen now which indicates it's installed ok, but when it tells me to choose my language again the phone freezes.
I removed the battery and put it back in, even waiting a few hours but nothing works. The message comes back and I can't get past it. The buttons seem to work as I can use 'alt' and 'caps' (the symbol for these appears) and the main button will remove that symbol.
**Can anyone please help me im still waiting for soome help from sunday. Wud really appreciate it. Also btw does anyone know of the warranty of BB Curve 8520 bought in the UK. Its like 6wks old now.

I have a Curve 8520. Once i updated the Software to V5.0 i deleted all languages except Eng and French and then rebooted as it asked for me to do. when it loaded up it comes up with a window saying 'To start using your blackberry smartphone, you will need to confirm the languages that you use. ' then has the button 'Conti..' but i cant get it to click. The trackpad def works tho cuz it reacts when i press the caps/alt buttons. The background is moving as it shud and it reacts to a charging battery and signal but is just plain frozen.
When i try to add/ remove programs on the DM, it just loads and loads and wont connect to my phone.

Nope nothings working, even took out the sim card and it still stays on that same screen when putting it back on. The DM recognises the phone but cant initialize at all.
Im gona take it into the store tomorrow, hopefully they'll still fix it for me.
Thanks for ur help anyway!
