    I have used the same password to lock my keypad on my bb 8310 for over a year. It is the same 4 digit password that I have always used. Now, suddenly it wont accept this password. When I type it in, i can see usually only see asterisks, but now I can see the actual characters that I am typing insyead. I get the message 'incorrect password and am now up to my 8/10 attempt. I know that my shift button is not down, or numlock (alt) is not in use. As I only have two more attempts before my phone data gets wiped, does anyone have any idea what the problem may be and how to fix it? Many thanks.email: steve1601@gmail.com

If you the wrong one too many times, it will make you setup a new password and work fine. the only problem is that all previous info on phone will be erased.

Try to insert any password in your phone 10 times to erase all your data and make your blackberry Tour 9630 unlocked. If your keypad still won't work after blackberry unlocking process, try to reflash your blackberry phone. Once again if still have same result, it should be a hardware problem in your phone and you need to repair that on nearest local mobile phone repair shop.

Forgot my blackberry curve 9300 keyboard lock


This lock code is something you would have chosen, their is no default code and no way to recover it. This is by design for security reasons. You have 10 attempts in total to guess if you don't remember the password. After 5 attempts the letters you type will no longer be hidden behind "*". After 10 attempts the phone will be wiped clean. All of your data will be lost. Hopefully you have been connecting your phone to your pc and doing a regular backup. If you have synchronization activated with your email accounts (done during initial setup of gmail or exchange type email accounts) you won't loose your contacts. Anything else that is on the internal memory of the phone will be lost.

Just enter the incorrect password x10 times and your Blackberry will be wiped. Your personal data will be gone, but you can then enter a new password and start again.

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,,

Blackberry 8330 password locked - forgot password. help


Yes! If your BlackBerry in running on the BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) then the IT admin of reset the password remotely...

If your Blackberry is not on the BES, then there is really nothing that can be done. This is a security feature enabled by RIM. Once you put the password 10 times incorrectly, the device willl master reset and all your data in it will be gone. However, not the application (any that you may have purchased).

Hope this was hopeful and I hope you remember your password... All the best

I forgot my mobile password. blackberry. i donno what to do. plz help???


There is a flaw in the Curve 8900 blackberries. After you type "BLACKBERRY", it asks you again to type the correct password. but since the password appears unmasked (without the asterisks) - that's the first flaw- there is no way to make mistakes right? well...thats what you might think.

The blackberry Curve 8900 has a serious flaw in the software that no matter how accurate you type your password, after the first try (when you type your password unmasked), there is no way to get back in because it will recognize your password as wrong ( no matter if you typed it right) and you data will be lost... I will notify this to T-mobile today but I will make sure Blackberry also knows about this bug, so they can fix it right away.
