    I downloaded nobex radio companion for my sprint blackberry curve 8330. When I went to the desktop manager to start the application download it told me to enter the word "blackberry" the to enter my password. The problem is, the only password I ever assigned to my phone was a 4 digit code for the phone lock & when I enter it, it tells me it's wrong. I have tried six attempts & now it says if I enter the wrong password again all my info will be erased. Can someone please help me.

    Thanks

    My phone is doing the exact same thing. I baught my Curve 8330 off of Craigslist only to find out the phone was reported stolen. I was told I would never be able to use this phone. Is that true? Is there anything I can do?

It is a defect for sure. Try holding the "alt" key down while entering the password. All the best. 03 12 09

Ktradam: You will have to wipe your handheld and then reinstall the Blackberry 4.3 Software using Desktop Manager that came in the box with your device. You will lose all information on the phone so make sure that all you information was backed up periodically.

Drunkmonkey: If the device is reported lost/stolen it is placed on the National Negative List and will not be taken off until the person that originally placed that restriction on it takes it off. Chances are they already recieved another device and will never even worry about the one you have.

Big Dawgg: Blackberry was having issues with their Desktop Manager and did issue an update which should have been included the next time you sychronized your device. If Nobex is a third party application, BB Desktop may have recognized it to be incompatible but installed it with incorrect scripts. You will have to delete that application or go to Nobex's site and check compatibility with that software version and call Blackberry Tech Support through Customer Care to trouble shoot and see if there are any features on your account interfering with that application.

tigerclay: Sometimes you can simply click cancel on Desktop Manager to opt out of entering a password. Times when i have updated a customer's device through Desktop Manager, it asks for a password or prompts you to enter one but I leave it blank or just press cancel. The default password is the last four digits of your password or 0000.

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!

You can type any password 10 times at your phone, it can make your blackberry curve 8520 unlocked from old password. But you also lose all your previous data during that process it's kind like to force your blackberry unlocked without using any software. If your phone still can't receiving calls or message try to reflash your blackberry.

Describe your AT&T BlackBerry Curve


BlackBerry smartphones support individual security passwords between four and 14 characters in length. The use of the password is designed to make sure that only the BlackBerry smartphone user can access the information stored on the BlackBerry smartphone.
The BlackBerry smartphone rejects less secure passwords, such as those composed of identical characters or those that consist of natural sequences (for example, 1234). In instances such as these, the BlackBerry smartphone will display the message The password cannot be a sequence.
Set a BlackBerry smartphone password
  1. From the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options.
  2. Click Security Options.
  3. Click General Settings. Note: If you are running BlackBerry® Device Software 4.0.2 or earlier, click Options, and then Security.
  4. Change the Password field to Enabled.
  5. Display the menu and click Save.
  6. Type your new password and click Enter.
  7. Verify your new password by typing it again and click Enter.

Turn on password protection using the Security Timeout feature Security Timeout is a feature that, after a predetermined amount of inactivity, will lock the BlackBerry smartphone automatically.
To turn on Security Timeout, complete the following steps:
  1. From the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options.
  2. Click Security Options.
  3. Click General Settings.
  4. Set the Security Timeout field to the amount of inactive time the BlackBerry smartphone is permitted before it is locked automatically.

  2. Type your BlackBerry smartphone password. Press Enter.
Important: If a password in incorrectly typed ten consecutive times, all of the information on the BlackBerry smartphone is automatically deleted. This is a security feature.


Additional Information When the Security Timeout feature is set for a longer duration than the Backlight Timeout feature, the BlackBerry smartphone will lock automatically when the combined duration of the features has elapsed. For example, if the Backlight Timeout feature is set to dim after two minutes and the Security Timeout feature is set for 20 minutes, the BlackBerry smartphone will not automatically lock until 22 minutes has elapsed.
