Password lock out

I am positive my password is correct but it is not working. When I type it in, the letters, instead of numbers show instead of astericks. When I hold down the number key the digits show as I type them. I only have 2 attempts left.

    PLEASE HELP ASAP!! I have a password for my Blackberry Curve 8310 (keypad lock) and for some reason it keeps telling me 'incorrect password' and only gives me 10 attempts. Usually when typing the password it displays asterix but it keeps displaying the letters/numbers and saying it's incorrect when I know it's the correct password!

    Can anyone help?!

Cant access my facebook account on iphone 4 .( login failed, unable to connect to facebook ). i change my password 2 times but still login failed..but when my daughter used she can login successfully...

If you can successfully log into your account on your computer. Then you must be typing your password in correctly on the phone. Sometimes auto correct will effect password spots. Or you might need to just type really slow and make sure your not hitting one letter and it's registering as another letter. Which is the most common sign in problems I've seen on touch based phones.

Blackberry PIN not accepted with desktop Manager

I recently plugged in my blackberry via USB to my computer and received a request to enter my password. If the password was incorrect 10 times then my blackberry would automatically wipe the data.

I had placed a security code to access my blackberry such as: 4404
When I tried typing this code on the BB desktop manager..on my computer. The code was not accepted. i tried over an over, until i realized the blackberrys number key also has a letter key.

Thus instead of typing the numbers 4404 on my computer, i typed the equivalent letter on the 4 key. if 4 is G then i typed gg0g

It worked !!

My blackberry is stuck on the lock screen. I reset it a couple of times, it didnt work. I try typing in password, it doesn't work. But the screen works properly, because it shows that I have new bbms,...

I think your password to unlock screen is not correct one, try to remember your password again. If still not remember and you need that phone so urgent, you can unlock blackberry curve 8520 screen password by typing any password until you fails 10 times. Your blackberry will be erase all your data including your password and you can setup new password again after your blackberry unlocked. Good luck!

I forgot my password for when i turn on my blackberry 9700

Do whatever you can to remember it.  After a certain number of attempts, it will ask you to type in blackberry then give you a couple more attempts to get your password.

After the 10th attempt, if you get the password wrong, it will have you type in blackberry again and it will completely wipe your Blackberry of all your personal data and it will reload itself back to factory default.

If your password has numbers in it, make sure you are pressing the ALT button down to make sure you are typing in a number, or plug your Blackberry into the computer with Desktop Manager installed and attempt to type in your password using the computer keyboard.

Basically, this is a security measure in case someone gets a hold of your Blackberry and attempts to break in to get your personal information.  RIM Blackberry does NOT have your password, so unfortunately a RIM tech support agent cannot retrieve your password.

Hopefully you have created a backup of your Data using the Desktop Manager, so if you cannot remember your password and the device wipes itself, you can restore your data from the backup with the Desktop Manager

When you try to enter wrong password for first 5 times you will see ***** marks on Blackberry screen,and then when you enter the wrong password again however Blackberry will display the password which you are trying to enter to make sure that if you are typing correct letters, symbols, special charecters etc

If a password is incorrectly typed ten consecutive times, all of the information on the BlackBerry smartphone is automatically deleted. This is a security feature.

I put a password on my blackberry and forgot it. now my phone is locked. how do i unlock it?

As a security feature, the BlackBerry device is designed to allow a maximum of 10 attempts by the BlackBerry device user to type the correct password. After the tenth attempt, if the correct password has not been typed, all data is erased from the BlackBerry device in order to discourage its theft or misuse.If you are certain that the password you are typing into the BlackBerry device is correct, please complete the following steps.
1) Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry device.
2) Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text.
3) Instead of asterisks, the text you have been entering for the password will now show in plain text. Check to verify that it is correct
4) If the password is still being rejected by your BlackBerry device as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed
5) A prompt will appear in Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry device. Type in your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry device
6) If the password you have given is still rejected, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that has software version 4.0 or greater, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator and request that your password be reset for you. I
f you are not on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server and have forgotten your password, there is no way to have the password changed without wiping all data from your BlackBerry device.

I try to unlock my phone but the lock code i enter is not working

When entering your characters for your selected "unlock" code/password be sure you have the correct character typed.

For example: Are you typing in a letter or a digit instead of the character wanted. Some think they are typing the number "5" say, but they never shifted and they are typing in a letter, like "D". Remember all keys have double representation.

Hope it was something as simple as this. Sorry.

Hope you don't need to reset!
