Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

2 Answers

I have bought a blackberry and don't have the password. I went through the 10 attempts to try and reset everything and the phone now powers on with a picure of a screen with a circle around it with a line marked through it and will do nothing else.

I suggest you to unlock blackberry curve 8300 with cable unlocking procedure at mobile repair shop. I recomended that solution since your mep counter already 0 and blackberry unlock code will not work anymore.

You need to reflash the OS to correct this.

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

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 think your password to unlock screen is not correct one, try to remember your password again. If still not remember and you need that phone so urgent, you can unlock blackberry curve 8520 screen password by typing any password until you fails 10 times. Your blackberry will be erase all your data including your password and you can setup new password again after your blackberry unlocked. Good luck!

Forgot my blackberry curve 9300 keyboard lock


This lock code is something you would have chosen, their is no default code and no way to recover it. This is by design for security reasons. You have 10 attempts in total to guess if you don't remember the password. After 5 attempts the letters you type will no longer be hidden behind "*". After 10 attempts the phone will be wiped clean. All of your data will be lost. Hopefully you have been connecting your phone to your pc and doing a regular backup. If you have synchronization activated with your email accounts (done during initial setup of gmail or exchange type email accounts) you won't loose your contacts. Anything else that is on the internal memory of the phone will be lost.

I have forgot password for my blackberry 9700 and i am on 8th attempt. Please help me how do recover my password. Thanks


Sorry to tell but at the moment there is no way to overcome that problem other than typing your password in 10 times and having all your data wiped. Once it has been wiped you can then set a new password to it. I hope you have everything backed up!

My phone wont unlock even dough i am putting the right password


I think your right password is not the right one for your phone. Try remember your password again, and if still not the correct one you can try to type wrong password 10 times to unlock blackberry curve 8300, your phone will be unlocked. But you will lose all your data after your blackberry unlocked and you can setup new password again and don't forget that password again :D

I FORGOT THE PASSWORD TO MY BLACKBERRY STORM


To my knowledge there is no way to retrieve the password without going through the ten tries and then typing in blackberry, which will wipe everything and start it from scratch. If you are on a business blackberry network you can have your IT admin reset it remotely. Otherwise you will have to go through the wipe procedure. To do this, simply attempt the password 10 times and then the last time it will ask you to type blackberry, at which time it will wipe your handheld and you will be back to square one.

Good Luck,,

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

Forgot password blackberry curve 8310


I think all you can do it reset the device to disable the password completely. If you enter the password ten times incorrectly it will ask if you want to do a complete reset.

THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PERSONAL DATA.

If you can, back up your device using the Blackberry Desktop Manager application before doing a reset. Then you can re-load all your personal data after the reset, instead of having to type it all in again.
