    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.

I no longer recieve emails on my blackberry I use the blackberry curve and my emails come through outlook with a comcast.net address


Remove the Microsoft Outlook Web Access email account and re-associate it with the BlackBerry smartphone using the correct mailbox name.

Revalidate the email account by logging in to your BlackBerry Internet Service account on your wireless service provider's web site and typing the user name and password for the associated account.

Request for service book for the associated Microsoft Outlook Web Access account from your service provider (customer care).

I hope you can fix this issue by doing this trouble shooting steps

"enter blackberry"


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 u r a blackberry enterprise user then contact ur BES administrator and request to reset the password.If u r not a blackberry enterprise user then there is no way to have the password changed without wiping all data from your BlackBerry device.

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.
