Depends on the settings your service provider has on such things. If this is a PUK ... I would stop immediately and contact the service provider ...

Here is info on PUK http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puk_code

I will forgot my password of my sandisk u3


Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.

If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.

Password attempts
There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

Password hint
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.

I want to reset my blackberry 8830


Set a password on the device (Options, Security Options, General Settings, Password "enabled". It will prompt you to create a password). Lock the device or turn it off. Enter an incorrect password. Keep trying to enter an incorrect password. It will likely have you type in the word "blackberry" after about 5 incorrect attempts. After five more incorrect attempts it will likely have you type in the word "blackberry" again and warn you that it is about wipe the handheld. Do this and it will wipe the handheld.

Im on my 9th attempt but my password is still incorrect keeping my keyboard locked. will all data be lost if do the 10th attempt and its still incorrect?


What happens is that before the the final attempts the phone will prompt you to enter the word "blackberry" and on the 10th attempt will warn you of the consequences if your password is still incorrect. It will then wipe all personal date and return the phone to it's original, out of the box, configuration. The data can be restored via BlackBerry Desktop Manager (provided you backed it up!) but you'll still need the phone password in order to do so. If you still cannot recall the password then the data is effectively irretrievable: BlackBerry security is so rock-solid that even RIM (the manufacturer) cannot bypass the password. The phone itself will be completely usable though.

Note that if your phone has been supplied by your employer then they may have installed an Enterprise edition of the BB operating system. This allows far more customisation and also gives them the opportunity to use additional BB software to reset or send your password to the phone remotely so if this applies to you then contact your employer before making any more password entry attempts. It can also allow them to wipe or disable the phone remotely and can set the phone itself to be lock itself after it wipes data.

I hope that my reply has been informative and useful to you, good luck with the password. Please take a moment to rate my answer or to add comments instead if you wish me to expand upon my answer.

Cannot unlock my kepad as forgotton what i chose as keypad lock password


Your only option is to keep entering passwords and once you have 10 incorrect attempts, the device will be wiped back to Factory Settings (data gone for security of lost devices). You can then reintialize the device with a new password of your choice.

I have a password lock on my black berry and whenever i try to enter my password in the password space, letters and numbers show up instead of the secrecy stars, and im on my 8/10 attempt and my passwords...


This is directly from RIM: Cause 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. ------------------------------------------------- Resolution 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. Before the BlackBerry device allows a further attempt, you will be prompted to type the word blackberry in plain text. 2. 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. 3. 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. 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. 4. 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.
