Its a software problem. You will have to reset the software. To do this you will need Blackberry Desktop Manager and your specific model (7100i) phone software which you should be able to download from your carriers web site. Once you download and install these two things, simply connect the phone to the computer, open desktop manager, click on application loader and update the unit.
I have had this happen, too. Take the battery out for a few minutes, then try again. Also, try removing the battery and hooking up to your PC with the USB cable. Sometimes, this will mysteriously go away, but I have known of a few folks that had to replace the unit.

install Blackberry Desktop on your computer and download the latest Blackberry Phone software from your carriers webite and instal it on your computer. Then connect your phone WITHOUT the battery to your PC and Click on App Loader. Follow directions and install the Software. The Installation WILL FAIL THE 1ST TIME. Thats normal. This time connect the phone WITH the battery and try the same thing again and you will have a brand new phone. except your Data.
The only solution I can think of if you have had the 10 attempts and not been successful is to call your network provider - They will be able to give you the unblock code and allow you back into your phone.
