Please note that you will not be able to take backup of the handheld as without password you will not be able to access your blackberry device or with desktop manager either. You have to try entering the password with the rest chances left and you will have to enter password as blackberry which would be poped up once you are done with the number of entries. The handheld will be wiped and which will restore factory settings as good as your new blackberry device.

Forgotten blackberry ID password and all attempts are finished


With the blackberry account, you will have to contact customer service to reset it. If they can't do it, you'll have to create a new account. I used to sell the blackberries, but it has been a while. It used to you would have to contact customer service to send you a reset link, or reset it for you, but they may have changed it not so long ago, where you can only create a new account if you forgot your password.

I HAVE A BLACKBERRY BOLD AND HAVE FORGOTTEN MY SECURITY CODE


I believe it should reset it self if you enter the wrong password more than 10 times. None of the data will be there afterward, so if you have any 3rd parts stuff or notes then your out of luck.

Password was entered incorretly 3 times now it says wiping all data. now says scrubbing


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 you are certain that the password you are typing into the BlackBerry device is correct, please complete the following steps.
  1. Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry device.
  2. Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text.
  3. Instead of asterisks, the text you have been entering for the password will now show in plain text. Check to verify that it is correct
  4. If the password is still being rejected by your BlackBerry device as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed
  5. A prompt will appear in Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry device. Type in your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry device
  6. If the password you have given is still rejected, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server that has software version 4.0 or greater, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator and request that your password be reset for you.
If you are not on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server and have forgotten your password, there is no way to have the password changed without wiping all data from your BlackBerry device.
