Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290
Help! I just want access to my data on the Blackberry 7290 and wouldn't care if I never see another Blackberry after that for as long as I live.
Problem: Keyboard locked. Data not backed up over last 4.5 months. Thought I entered correct password several times without looking properly at what I was doing. I think of the password as numbers (sequence of four numbers, e.g. 1234) but actually it must be the letters on those keys. Used 9/10 goes. Thought that I must have entered the correct password at least once. Afraid to try last time as data will be wiped if incorrect.
(1) COULD I HAVE ACCIDENTALLY USED AN UNKNOWN KEY SEQUENCE OR MACRO OF SOME KIND WHICH RESETS THE PASSWORD? I REALLY WASN'T LOOKING WHAT I WAS DOING UNTIL 6/10 GOES USED UP, BY THAT TIME ASKING ME TO TYPE "blackberry" TO CONTINUE.
(2) IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THE PASSWORD OR SOFTWARE TO BECOME CORRUPTED SO THAT THE PHONE CANNOT BE UNLOCKED?
(3) CAN THE PASSWORD BE "READ" OR FORCED BY SOME MACHINE SO THAT MY BLACKBERRY KEYBOARD CAN BE UNLOCKED?
(4) CAN THE MANUFACTURER, RIM, HELP IN ANY WAY?
(5) IT'S MY FAULT, I DON'T HAVE A CURRENT BACKUP TO RESTORE TO THE HANDSET. BUT I DON'T WANT TO LOSE MY DATA WHICH CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT TEXTS AND CONTACT NUMBERS. WHAT CAN I DO?
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.
