Forgot password on BB 8320 Curve. Tried putting in password. Now the screen is saying "Enter Password Final Attempt". I don't want to lose data. What do I do?
Hi, after the final attempt to enter your password the phone will prompt the user to type in the word "blackberry" and will then wipe all of the data on the phone including the password and return the phone to it's original "out of the box" status. The phone will be fully usable again, but if you want to restore your data to it then you have to do so via the last back-up stored by BlackBerry Desktop Manager. To restore the data will require your password though, so if you cannot figure it out then the data is lost as well.
If your BlackBerry has the corporate Enterprise Edition operating system, then it's likely that only the company which the operating system is licensed to will be able to restore the data; they'll often have additionally set the phone so that the password is retained even after a data wipe making the phone itself useless. Blackberry is famous for its security and the password cannot be bypassed without some very state of the art equipment.
Although BlackBerry set the default number of password attempts to ten, there are user options to reduce this number if required.
Hope this helps......
