Blackberry – App Error 200

My heart almost stopped when I got home and checked my phone the Black Berry 9000 and see white screen and in very small letters a message “App Error 200” and only one option on screen under the message is RESET. So I tried to reset few times and always the Black Berry came back to this white screen with same message… Oh…very sad .. I have seen myself to call the store where I purchased the phone for support as on the net is only one advise — run to the store and have it replaced .. As always .. no situation is so bad as it looks at first sight … I calmed and start thinking (painful process) :-)

I have started the Black Berry Desktop manager and connected the phone over an USB cable .. I could hear the tone from computer that USB device has been found .. in the manager however no detection of the phone .. so I have left it connected and just press the RESET on screen again and let it go. It took almost 10 minutes and suddenly the phone has been recognized and connected …YAY .. what the pleasure :-)

I have executed backup on the phone and disconnected from the cable. Once back, I have noted that I am missing some program icons and the menu is somehow messed up .. Now I have removed the battery and rebooted the phone .. Phone came back and everything works again :-)

Oh, here is actually – probably official Black Berry solution:
