Try a forced shutdown on your phone by holding the power button, if the phone still does not turn off remove the back and take out the battery.

If the problem still remains please let me know and I shall provide further assistance :-)

Update

1 Press the "Alt," "Caps," and "Delete" keys at the same time. This will perform a soft reset of your BlackBerry. The BlackBerry device will reboot. If the frozen screen doesn't disappear, proceed to Step 2.

2 Locate the "Reset" button on the back of the smartphone (the button may be under the battery cover or on the bottom).

3 Press the button by using the tip of pin or paperclip. This will perform a hard reset of your phone. No data will be lost.

4 Power on your BlackBerry device. The frozen screen should be fixed.

if you have blackberry desktop manager you can open it, connect you blackberry device to your computer,wait until its finished initializing, a pop up appear to repair device but all these will be done without the battery being in the phone, when u click on repair the computer checks for an update and asks if you want to install click on yes,then it starts downloading.

after installing you now replace the battery. and wait for the reboot
