Need to remove the itpolicy with the desktop manager!


Method 2: Placing Blank IT Policy on the Device (OS 4.2 and earlier devices) WARNING! Follow these instructions only if you know what you are doing. These instructions can actually downgrade certain BlackBerrys' abilities (i.e. permanent loss of support for Bluetooth keyboards) if your BlackBerry actually does not already have an IT policy installed. These instructions are meant as a last resort to regain BlackBerry capabilities, in the event your BlackBerry is encumbered by a restrictive leftover IT policy after removal from a BES (i.e. eBay purchased BlackBerry).
Steps to Method 2 removing IT Policy. This procedure should ONLY be used on devices that cannot be upgraded to OS 4.3 or higher. If you have an 8xxx device then use the method described above. If you have an older 7xxx device or have OS 4.2 on the device then continue with the following instructions. This is a How-To for removing IT policy from your BB. In essence, what this does is apply a blank IT policy to the device. The blank IT policy does, unfortunately, leave some IT policy firewalls in place, however. For instance "keystroke injection" is set by default to "deny" on most IT policies. This blank policy won't give back "allow" for this feature. This becomes a problem if you desire to use a Bluetooth keyboard. You'll be unable to use the keyboard. If a way is found to get this back then I'll edit this post accordingly. A quick check to see if your BB is under IT policy can be done by going to Options/Security on your Device. If you see any references to IT Policy whatsoever, then you have a potentially restrictive IT Policy that can be removed.

  1. Step 1: Ensure the Blackberry Desktop Manager is installed using Blackberry Internet Service, and not Blackberry Enterprise Server. If you are unsure, it would probably be a good idea to uninstall the Desktop Manager and start again. If you don't have the CD that came with your Blackberry, the Software can be downloaded here.
  2. Step 2: Download the file policy.bin and save it in your Blackberry installation directory (C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry). Click Here to Download
  3. Step 3: Wipe your Blackberry, creating a backup if necessary. Select Options/Security/Wipe on the Device. If this option is unavailable, you may have to install the latest software on your Blackberry. You need to Download and install the latest OS for your device. Connect your device, open the Desktop Manager, select Application Loader, and follow the prompts.
  4. Step 4: Close the Desktop Manager if it is open.
  5. Step 5: From the Windows XP Start Menu select Run..., and at the prompt type regedit. In the tree on the left hand side, navigate to: HKEY_Current_Users\Software\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\PolicyManager Right-Click the Policy Manager Folder and select New/String Value. Name the value Path. Now, Double-Click the Path Subkey and set Value Data to: C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\policy.bin
  6. Step 6: Open the Desktop Manager.
  7. Step 7: Connect the Device. Verification Once complete, the Options/Security screen on your Blackberry should not contain references to an IT Policy, you should now be able to change all settings (including password prompts), and install Third Party Applications.

I think your blackberry 7100v unlock code is worked and your problem is not caused by blackberry unlock code. Try to reset your blackberry phone and if still not working try to upgrade that blackberry os. I hope it can solve your problem.

Haven't used my rim in ages, so forgotten the passcode to get into the phone. Is there anyway of unlocking/reseting it at all?


Maybe you can unlock your phone using blackberry 7290 unlock code, that code can be obtained from network provider or buy from blackberry unlock code seller on internet. Other way, you can bring your cellphone to mobile repair shop to get hard unlocked using cable unlock.

I forgot my password for my blackberry curve 9300 and i have 2 attempts left! i realy cant live without it so how can i unlock it? HELP!


You can unlock blackberry curve 8300 without knowing your password, but it will erased all your data. If you want doing in that way, just keep enter 2 more wrong password again and your blackberry will be autoreseting and you can setup new password. That's the only way to unlock blackberry password.

Blackberry curve 8300 password forgotten how to reset need to reset


Yes, if you enter passwords ten times, it will run a master reset on it, clearing all data. On the 8th bad password, you will have to enter the word 'blackberry' too, but that is to keep small children from running a master reset by playing with it.

As to the users with jvm errors, you will need to install Blackberry Desktop Manager on your PC, and reinstall the BB software. Both the BBDM and the software can be found at www.att.com/bbdownloads.

Locked blackberry


just use up all the attempts to unlock the password and the phone will atomatically wipe itself and then you will be able to set up your own password.

Unlock sim


You want to unlock the phone.... not the sim....

In another country, you will most likely get a new sim card frrom a local carrier for the unlock exercise to be worth while.
