Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

1 Answer

Phone is locked

I always lock my phone when I put it away.  Instead of asking for my password to unlock the phone my curve is asking me to: enter "blackberry" to continue I have no idea what this means and my phone is locked up.  Can someone offer me a solution or tell me how to do a hard reset of my phone?

    This did not work. Where is usually just asks me for my password it is still saying:
    Enter "blackberry" to continue:

    I do not know what that means. I tried my usual password and I even tried entering the word "blackberry". I am desperate to get my phone and calendar back since I have not synced in about 3 weeks I have no idea what my schedule is this week!

    I lock my phone by clicking on the lock icon, and instead of asking for my password(like it has the last 100 times) to unlock it, it is saying-enter "blackberry to continue.

    I do not believe it is stuck with blackberry startup splash(not sure even what that means). Everything is in place as always. I see my wallpaper and instead of asking for my password it is doing this odd thing. My cursor is sitting right there as if "enter blackberry" means some pass code or something.

    If your phone is stuck with blackberry startup splash, do simple reset descripted above, by removing battery for a couple of minutes, if still does not work, you will need to re install blackberry system.
    To do this you need to connect it to computer.
    If the black berry is not seen by computer, there will be need for reinstalling the firmware image. In this last case you will need to ca;; a service

    Splash is just the picture you get on startup. In your case the password had been activated or forgotten, as you are telling me it is not frozen.
    There is no way to recover from a forgotten password on Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone . If you type your BlackBerry device password incorrectly, you might be prompted to type blackberry before you can continue. When you
    try to type your password again, the characters that you type appear on the screen.
    If you exceed the number of allowed password attempts, your device deletes all your device data for security reasons.
    If you keep trying your blackberry will reset by itself.

    Here is the User Guide for more reference.

How to reset the blackberry curve password without losing data We have a BB that was turned in because an employee was terminated and they locked it before turning it in.


No you can't unlock blackberry curve 8300 without losing data if you didn't know the correct password, that's feature of RIM security to secure all customers data if their phone stolen or missing. You must type any password 10 times to unlock blackberry password and there is no option to save all your data.

My blackberry curve is locked and wont unlock


i would recommend reloading the device software using the desktop software available on blackberry.com
normally a blackberry will not tell you to enter 'blackberry' unless it is trying to wipe the device.

Hand held is locked


Call your cell phone provider to get it reset. It doesn't delete the data from the phone but it will lock it from use until you call your cell phone carrier.

hi
Try with all the code to see whether you can get one to unlock your phone. If all still cannot help then you can only contact Samsung Support for help. I hope these information below at least can give you some hints:

Note try codes which help direct unlock for either SIM Lock or Security Lock first before try other codes

*7465625*746*Code# = Enables SIM lock
#7465625*746*Code# = Disables SIM lock
*2767*2878# (Temporary Unlock)
*7465625*638*00000000*00000000# (Set Code)
#7465625*638*00000000# (Clear Network Lock)
*#7465625# (Verify the network lock is “inactive”)

*2767*3855#
*2767*3855# - FULL E2P RESET
*2767*2878# - CUSTOM E2P RESET
#*7337# - UNLOCK
*2767*688# - UNLOCK
*#0523# - CONTRAST
*#9998*523# - CONTRAST
*#8999*8378# - Service Menu (X100)

First with different carrier SIM in phone at WRONG CARD screen ENTER on the keypad
*2767*3855# (wait 10-15 seconds) phone will reboot(restart)
When phone completes reboot ENTER
*7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
NEXT ENTER
#7465625*638*00000000#
AND THEN *#7465625# to check the locks....all locks are inactive...these are all the locks...
network lock - inactive
subset lock - inactive
sp lock - inactive
cp lock - inactive
sim lock - inactive
activa lock - inactive
phone lock - inactive
auto network - inactive
auto subset lock - inactive
auto sp lock - inactive
auto cp lock - inactive

Good Luck
