How to change password on blackberry when you don't know the password?


If you or a user turns on content protection for a BlackBerry device that is running BlackBerry Device Software version 4.3 or later, you can reset the BlackBerry device password using a BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP5 or later. The BlackBerry Enterprise Solution uses the remote password reset cryptographic protocol to reset the BlackBerry device password when content protection is turned on. The BlackBerry device does not prompt the user for the old BlackBerry device password.
The remote password reset cryptographic protocol is designed to provide the following features:

* permit the BlackBerry device to encrypt the content protection key again with the new password, without the old password being available
* prevent a hardware-based attack on the BlackBerry device from recovering the content protection key without knowing either the BlackBerry device password or the IT policy private key that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server generates for the BlackBerry device
* prevent the BlackBerry Enterprise Server from accessing any data that a potentially malicious user could use to recover the content protection key

To reset the BlackBerry device password, you send the Specify new device password and lock device IT administration command to the BlackBerry device. You should send the IT administration command to a content-protected BlackBerry device that is in the possession of the BlackBerry device user only. If you send the IT administration command to a BlackBerry device that is in the possession of a potentially malicious user, that user can use a hardware-based attack to recover the key pair that the BlackBerry device created when it received the IT policy. The potentially malicious user can use the key pair to decrypt all the data on the BlackBerry device.

* Process flow: Resetting a BlackBerry device password when content protection is turned on

I just got a blackberry world hand-me-down at work.I shut it off saying to turn it off entirely and now it will not turn on. Help please!


Hi,first reset the phone,
There are three main types of Reset that apply to the Blackberry. These are listed in order below. Instructions for Blackberry Pearl are slightly different - see bottom section of the Tip.

1) Soft Reset - simply press the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys.

This reset stops all applications that are running on the Blackberry and will help if you are having problems connecting the device to computer. This reset will not erase any information from your device.

2) Double Soft Reset - this reset is almost equivalent to a full hard reset. First perform a Soft Reset as outlined in Step 1.

As soon as the screen is no longer black - repeat the steps once again exactly as before.

This takes you to another screen showing an hour glass. Allow the device to reset. This helps if the device has suffered a more serious error. Be aware you may loose some information from your device. A backup is advised prior to proceeding if at all possible.

3) Hard Reset - this is the full blown reset and will fully reset the device to help resolve critical errors with software or hardware. Again back up important information before proceeding if possible.

Note: For RIM models 850, 857, 950, or 957, you must insert the end of a paperclip or similar blunt object into a small recessed hole on the back of the unit and depress the switch inside. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Other Models: With the device turned on - remove the battery for 30 seconds or more. Now replace the battery. The device will reboot and be hard reset.

Blackberry Pearl: To reset to factory defaults enter 'Options' from the main menu. Scroll to Security Options and press the trackball. Choose 'General Settings'.

Press the left soft key, then scroll to "Wipe Handheld" with the trackball and press the trackball. To initiate the factory reset, your phones security code may be required in order for the process to complete. Your phone will now be restored to its original settings on leaving the factory.

A hard reset can be achieved with the Pearl in the same way as outlined at Step 3 by removing the battery.

Be aware that resets such as these may erase data, such as contacts, ring tones, pictures, text messages and stored Internet files and emails. Make sure to back up important information beforehand if at all possible. You can obtain software to back up the device to your computer directly from Blackberry right here.

Hope this Tip helps. If so please do leave a vote for the solution.

WON'T TURN ON




Hi,when a phone does not come on, it is either the battery of the phone is dead,
might need to be charge or replaced with another battery.

you can use another battery to test if it is the battery the fault.

The other thing to check is if the phone memory is weak and may need to be restored
back the phone memory.
will need to be flashed.
if too weak to power up the phone all application you downloaded on the phone has
VIRUS and has affected the phone memory.


First Charge the battery for longer hours before using another battery to confirm
if the battery cell is the problem.

If not battery, in think you will have to flash the phone memory for it to come back to life.
You can use the link below to know about how to flash the phone.

Bluetooth headset won't pair with Blackberry 7100V


Are both devices turned on and able to be paired - On the blackberry you need to enable Bluetooth before pairing.

You may need to reset the headset and start again, make sure it is flashing to indicate fully charged and on.
