Hi there;

Looks like you either forgot your password or not typing the password in correctly. I have done that many times - I found when using the multiple character keybord i was typing the wrong character. Double check what you are actually typing in.

So, the message means the device will reset as in it will wipe all the data to standard settings after 6 attempts.

Just a protection system on BB's. Your device will perfectly fine once your device resets and you can enter a new password :o) but you will loose all the data like emails/txts/calender/notes from the device.

I hope this Helps,

Thanks.

I have rim blackberry 7290 and i insertsim and then become invalid sim


Your question is not clear. Is this BlackBerry a regular using one or a new one. Did you try inserting different SIM to it. Does the same message gets displayed for all the SIM.
I think your mobile must be locked to any particular network. That is why it displays invalid SIM when any new network SIM is inserted in it.
You must find out to which network has your mobile been locked to. Then get the unlock code from www.Mobileunlocksolutions.com . You need not worry about the unlocking process. You can get the complete unlocking instructions from www.Mobileunlockguide.com for free.

It's normal since your phone still locked for particular network. To unlock blackberry 7290 network you will be need a blackberry unlock code and you can obtained that code from your network provider or purchased at third parties sites.

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 locked


Select "unlock" and type in the password. The device will allow you 10 trials and after that it will delete all old data and allow you to set your own password.

In case you do not want the password, go to options > security > password - press space bar to disable

Unlock BlackBerry 7290


Unfortunately, the unlock code for a BB 7290 is unique to each phone. The unlock code is based on the IMEI of your BB. After getting an unlock code then the steps to unlock are:
1. go to options

2 scroll to SIM CARD then press jog dial in once to select it

3. Type MEPD (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

4. Does it say Network active? if so your phone is locked

5. Press and hold the alt key (half moon looking key on the lower left side)

6. as you are holding the alt key type in MEPE (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

7. type in the unlock code when prompted

8. After entering the code press the jog dial in

9. Your phone is now unlocked!

Locked.


"blackberry" is often the code. However, I believe the user locked it up and has their own code to lock/unlock.

get in touch with the seller... ask them for the code... :)
