I want to reset my blackberry 8300 passwor?


You may try default phone and security code to remove restrictions.
ur defalt phones codes is 12345 or 00000 u can use it
Default 4 Digit user code: 1234 or 0000
Default 6 Digit Security code: 123456 or 000000

Type *#06# at the mobile screen to know IMEI no of your mobile.
send the IMEI no to me and i will reply you with unlocking code.

OR:
Type password Ten times incorrectly ..this will wipe off all the data and will restart your blackberry
and when it is restarted you will be able to enter a new password and in Case if you donot want to Wipe the data and still you want to reset it..if you are on the main screen of your blackberry
Settings--options--security settings or security options and than press on track ball or wheel and from the menu choose reset Password..

I FORGOT THE PASSWORD TO MY BLACKBERRY STORM


To my knowledge there is no way to retrieve the password without going through the ten tries and then typing in blackberry, which will wipe everything and start it from scratch. If you are on a business blackberry network you can have your IT admin reset it remotely. Otherwise you will have to go through the wipe procedure. To do this, simply attempt the password 10 times and then the last time it will ask you to type blackberry, at which time it will wipe your handheld and you will be back to square one.

Good Luck,,

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!

I have locked my blackberry storm using patternlock and have forgotten the pattern, how do i get it unlocked?


Every BlackBerry has "Subsidy code" or "Sim lock code". To remove BlackBerry subsidy code or sim lock a special Blackberry IMEI Unlock Code is needed. By entering Blackberry Unlock Code on your BlackBerry you can use your Blackberry with any GSM and SIM card around the world. Blackberry Unlocking is simplest way to remove any or carrier restrictions from your Blackberry. Remote IMEI unlocking is the safest and fastest way to unlock a cell phone.
Get this Blackberry Storm 9530 Imei Unlock Code .i hope this will help you :)
Good Luck.

My blackberry curve is locked and wont unlock


i would recommend reloading the device software using the desktop software available on blackberry.com
normally a blackberry will not tell you to enter 'blackberry' unless it is trying to wipe the device.
