My cousin put in a password for my blackberry 8220 he forgot the code and now i have one chance left before the phone is wiped what should i doo??? i need help plzz and thank you


Forgot BlackBerry Device Password
  • If you have forgotten your BlackBerry device password, and your BlackBerry device is on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, contact your BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator and request to have your password reset.
  • If your BlackBerry device is not connected to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server and you have forgotten your password, there is no way to have the password reset without erasing all the data.

If you know the password you're typing is correct, try the following:
  1. Deliberately type in an incorrect password five times on your BlackBerry smartphone.
  2. Before the BlackBerry smartphone 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 smartphone as incorrect, connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed.
  5. A prompt will appear in BlackBerry Desktop Manager to type the password for the BlackBerry smartphone. Type your password to rule out missed key strokes, incorrect symbols, or a problem with the BlackBerry smartphone

I downloaded app lock an i hav forotten my passward ?


Try to input any password 10 time in your phone, it will make your blackberry curve 8520 unlocked. But all your previous data in that phone will be wipe out after you unlock blackberry password using that solution. As my knowledge we can't unlock blackberry password without losing all data in that phone if we forgotten our password, that's why you must remember your password in the future. Good luck.

Can i reset forgotten password on BB curve if not enabled


Yes, but you would have to enter the wrong password 10x - Caution - this will wipe your BB of all saved data.

Or can contact your cell provider and see if they can reset your password if not and your BB is issued to you via your Company than you can have your BB Administrator reset your BB password.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a blackberry bold - I have forgotten my password and have attempted it 8/10 times. How do I reset and change the password?


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.
