You cannot restore the data.. This is a security feature in the blackberry in case some one tries to break-in.

Forgot password on BB 8320 Curve. Tried putting in password. Now the screen is saying "Enter Password Final Attempt". I don't want to lose data. What do I do?


Hi, after the final attempt to enter your password the phone will prompt the user to type in the word "blackberry" and will then wipe all of the data on the phone including the password and return the phone to it's original "out of the box" status. The phone will be fully usable again, but if you want to restore your data to it then you have to do so via the last back-up stored by BlackBerry Desktop Manager. To restore the data will require your password though, so if you cannot figure it out then the data is lost as well.

If your BlackBerry has the corporate Enterprise Edition operating system, then it's likely that only the company which the operating system is licensed to will be able to restore the data; they'll often have additionally set the phone so that the password is retained even after a data wipe making the phone itself useless. Blackberry is famous for its security and the password cannot be bypassed without some very state of the art equipment.

Although BlackBerry set the default number of password attempts to ten, there are user options to reduce this number if required.

Hope this helps......

Forgot password phone locked.


The unit shouldn't have locked-up...just reset itself. It would have wiped the data and settings, rebooted and started out as brand-new.

If it has truly locked-up, try removing the battery and re-inserting it. The unit should then boot up. If it doesn't, I would suggest calling your service provider for assistance.

Cheers!

Blackberry 8320 call failed after cleaning


try this method this will correct the issues that you are having.


2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

Forgot password blackberry curve 8310


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.
