My blackberry is stuck on the lock screen. I reset it a couple of times, it didnt work. I try typing in password, it doesn't work. But the screen works properly, because it shows that I have new bbms,...

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!

Just type any password 10 times to make your blackberry curve 3G 9300 unlocked.

Unfortunately, there's no way/trick to get your current password!
What you CAN do, is typing a (incorrect) password 10 times. The data on the BlackBerry device will be erased and the password will be reset. After your BlackBerry is resent, you'll see a prompt for a new password.

4. Click Next.
5. Choose the port that the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to and click Next.
6. If prompted, type the BlackBerry smartphone password and click Next.
