Same like my previous solution you only need to type any password login for 10 times to unlock blackberry 7290 old password. After you reach 10 password failure your blackberry unlocked from old password and you can setup your own password. But this method also erase all your previous data in that phone.

That's simple my friend. If you want to unlock blackberry 7290 password and don't care about your previous data, just type any password until you fail 10 times and your blackberry unlocked from old password.

Hi,

I am quite late in helping you but my information might help you in the future. If you want to unlock your blackberry, then I would recommend you Blackberry unlocking codes with IMEI. They are very reliable, CHEAPEST and provide good customer support service. Good luck!

Locked??


You need the password to unlock it. If you bought it on ebay you should contact the seller.

Forgot password phone locked.


The unit shouldn't have locked-up...just reset itself. It would have wiped the data and settings, rebooted and started out as brand-new.

If it has truly locked-up, try removing the battery and re-inserting it. The unit should then boot up. If it doesn't, I would suggest calling your service provider for assistance.

Cheers!

Blackberry locked


Select "unlock" and type in the password. The device will allow you 10 trials and after that it will delete all old data and allow you to set your own password.

In case you do not want the password, go to options > security > password - press space bar to disable

7290 with keyboard locked, used 9/10 goes,one go left of password


The easiest error is having the number, alt or caps lock on.

To check if this is the case, you will have an icon in the upper right hand of the screen.

Phone locked & forget the password


No, this problem needs resetting at a dealers. The unit needs connecting to a computer with the right software.

If it really yours then you should go to your dealer with the appropriate id or proof of purchase.
