Question about Cell Phones
Sorry but you cannot override the lock code. Even RIM (the manufacturer) cannot do it.
BlackBerries sell well to governments and business precisely because they are so secure. If you lose the code and cannot remember it, your phone will eventually prompt you to enter the word "blackberry". When you do so it will wipe itself irretrievably of all data and return to its original out-of-the-box configuration. You can then use the phone again, but all of your data will be gone.
If you do remember your code afterwards, and have made regular back-ups via BlackBerry Desktop Manager, then the phone data saved at any previous backup can be restored fully to the phone.
Note that if your BlackBerry was supplied by an employer it will usually be running an Enterprise edition of the phone software. If so contact your I.T. department as they can use that version of the software to set a master password. They can also set the phone so that once it data wipes, it is totally unusable.
Good luck, I hope that my information has been of use even if it does not immediately solve your problem. Please take a moment to rate my free and speedy answer.
