My father purcheased this used and was told the personal data was deleted. When we tried to synchronize the date from the computer to teh organize it asked for a passcode. I contacted the seller and he said he never used the synch feature or set a passcode. Is there a default passcode on the organizer or is there a way to reset it without knowing the current one? This model is no longer supported by Sharp so we are on own trying to figure this out. THe manuals do not even mention a passcode but I did find the screen where you change it (but you need the current passcode to remove or change it).

If you enter the wrong passcode in to an iOS device six times in a row, you'll be locked out and a message will say that your device is disabled.
Pick a way to erase your device
Unless you made a backup before you forgot your passcode, there isn't a way to save your device's data. You'll need to erase your device, which deletes all of your data and settings. Choose a way to erase:
In order for you to unlock your Blackberry Q5, it implies that you will loose all the data and information on it. The only way to have your data and information intact is to unlock it with the actual or correct password or passcode. If you probably know the person that locked it, as him/her for the password or passcode, but if you don't know the person, then your device will have to reset itself back to factory settings after trying with several passwords which are not correct.
So to unlock it, it means you have to keep trying to use different passcode till the device ask you to type in the word 'blackberry' for a reset. I advise that you remove your memory card before trying this.
Due to 5 consecutive incorrect passcode,youll be ask to wait for couple of minutesa. After waiting,you can now enter 12345 as your passcode. It then should be your current password. If you want you can also hard reset phone by typing *#7370# to delete all of the settings. It will delete all of the phone settings and data from your phone memory so better yet have a back up of your personal data.
I think all you can do it reset the device to disable the password completely. If you enter the password ten times incorrectly it will ask if you want to do a complete reset.
THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PERSONAL DATA.
If you can, back up your device using the Blackberry Desktop Manager application before doing a reset. Then you can re-load all your personal data after the reset, instead of having to type it all in again.
For soft reset type *#7780# For hard reset type *#7370# and if it ask passcode enter the passcode as 1234 as default.Please backup all your data if you performing hard reset because hard reset deletes all data on your phone like contacts,messages,music,videos and photos
According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked. If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data." Good Luck, I hope this helps Please Rate me...Thank You
A quick and dirty method of getting your data to near flat file format is to find a computer with the old RS-232 serial port and use a third party software called "Rupplynx" v 6.0 or 6.1 to download the data from the Wizard to the Rupplynx software on the PC. The backup/extracted files that you create with this software will be binary but the address book, memo etc data portion of the file will be ASCII text that is readable (beware, even the secret entries are readable so you will have to guard the computer that the files are on). A better but slower way is to copy and paste the uploaded and displayed data text in the Rupplynx 3rd party software to a Word document or plain *.txt file. I did this for the most important data since I also had about 10 years worth of memos and contacts.
I copied the whole subdirectory with the binary files from a windows XP computer that had an RS-232 port to a Windows vista computer and the program ran fine so that I could get the data into a compatible format such as Word or plain text file format. (via copy and paste) Rupplynx also has an export option to export to different file formats...
