I am almost positive you cannot "over ride" your password.  i recently set my password and it warns that if you set it and then forget it, there is no way to retrieve it.  i think you have to get a new SIM.

Blackberry id password forgot


It is wise to set a password on your BlackBerry, just as you would on a laptop or PC.
After all, BlackBerry devices are similar to small personal computers.

They contain loads of information including files, phone numbers, dates and emails. But when you forget your password you are presented with a tough situation the device will have to be completely reset to allow you to create a new one.

Come to terms with the fact that in order to reset your forgotten BlackBerry password you will lose all of the data on your phone.

A password reset wipes the device clean as a way to protect your information in case the phone is stolen it is a tight security measure that is built into BlackBerry phones.


Type in the incorrect password. The BlackBerry will tell you how many more tries you have to enter the wrong password before it resets (you usually have between three and ten tries total.)

Continue entering the wrong password.
You may be prompted to enter the word "blackberry" a few times to continue this is to make sure that you (or a child ) aren't accidentally and unknowingly typing in the wrong password.


Allow the device to reset itself and shut down.
Try to restart the BlackBerry.

If nothing loads, the application software was removed as well and you should proceed to the next step.
If you see your normal screen, proceed to the last step below.

Connect the device to your computer via your USB cord (this comes with your phone) and load the Blackberry Desktop Manager software (if you don't have it download it at na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop).


Click "Application Loader" then "Add/Remove Applications."
Select "BlackBerry System Software" (along with any other applications you want to download to your phone) and then "Next."

Verify the list of applications you want to download on the next screen and click "Finish."
Allow the Blackberry software to reinstall.

Enter a new password under "Options" then "Password" (or the similar choice) on your BlackBerry.

I have a puk code for my blackberry pearl 8100 but i forgotten the puk so if anyone knows please contacat me plz x thanks xx


If you have forgotten the PUK then the only way to get another is via your airtime provider. If you have forgotten your BlackBerry password, then nobody, not even RIM (the manufacturer) can help you.

Can i reset forgotten password on BB curve if not enabled


Yes, but you would have to enter the wrong password 10x - Caution - this will wipe your BB of all saved data.

Or can contact your cell provider and see if they can reset your password if not and your BB is issued to you via your Company than you can have your BB Administrator reset your BB password.

Hope this helps.

As a security feature, the BlackBerry device is designed to allow a maximum of 10 attempts by the BlackBerry device user to type the correct password. After the tenth attempt, if the correct password has not been typed, all data is erased from the BlackBerry device in order to discourage its theft or misuse.If you are certain that the password you are typing into the BlackBerry device is correct, please complete the following steps.
1) Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry device.
2) Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text.
3) Instead of asterisks, the text you have been entering for the password will now show in plain text. Check to verify that it is correct
4) If the password is still being rejected by your BlackBerry device as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed
5) A prompt will appear in Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry device. Type in your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry device
6) If the password you have given is still rejected, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that has software version 4.0 or greater, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator and request that your password be reset for you.
If you are not on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server and have forgotten your password, there is no way to have the password changed without wiping all data from your BlackBerry device. After the tenth attempt ur phone will be automatically wiped out.

I have forgotten the password to enter my blackberry 8700f. Can this be bypassed?


No, there is no way to recover it. Your only choice is to let it fail 10 times and it will erase your data. Then restore it from your last backup. If your BlackBerry is on a BES ( BES BlackBerry Enterprise Server ), the BES Administrators could possibly send out a password reset command with a temporary password to your device. If this is the case, contact your internal Help Desk or BES Admin.

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.
