okay so i recently purchased a blackberry torch 9800 from my friend, its not in terrible condition but it has a few scratches on it. the phone also worked fine for her.
this morning installed an app to rename my music files, called MTagz or something like that
straight after installing, a grey box with a blue circle loading sign and the word loading in it appeared. i figured it would go after a while, but long story short it didnt.
ive tried rebooting and turning my phone off and then on, but it wont work. if i could, i would uninstall the app but my phone is completely unresponsive.
i can enter my pin and password, but as soon as the homescreen shoes up both the touch screen and the keypad dont work. i can also press the menu button to switch between windows, but when those windows open again i cant do anything.
thanks for your help

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Given your method of procurement, I recommend you start here:
Ensure that all steps are properly conducted so as to fully divorce the BB from your friend's accounts and thereby be able to fully create all you need for yourself alone.
As for your issue as reported, I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens.
If the behavior ceases, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
But if the behavior continues in Safe Mode, then you may need to consider more drastic actions -- WIPE, OS Reload, BBSAK Wipe/Reload, and the "Bare Bones" OS Reload Process. To prepare, you should be sure that you have a full backup to your PC...please review the Backup link in my auto-sig on this post for instructions.

Good luck and let us know!
