Blackberry id password forgot


It is wise to set a password on your BlackBerry, just as you would on a laptop or PC.
After all, BlackBerry devices are similar to small personal computers.

They contain loads of information including files, phone numbers, dates and emails. But when you forget your password you are presented with a tough situation the device will have to be completely reset to allow you to create a new one.

Come to terms with the fact that in order to reset your forgotten BlackBerry password you will lose all of the data on your phone.

A password reset wipes the device clean as a way to protect your information in case the phone is stolen it is a tight security measure that is built into BlackBerry phones.


Type in the incorrect password. The BlackBerry will tell you how many more tries you have to enter the wrong password before it resets (you usually have between three and ten tries total.)

Continue entering the wrong password.
You may be prompted to enter the word "blackberry" a few times to continue this is to make sure that you (or a child ) aren't accidentally and unknowingly typing in the wrong password.


Allow the device to reset itself and shut down.
Try to restart the BlackBerry.

If nothing loads, the application software was removed as well and you should proceed to the next step.
If you see your normal screen, proceed to the last step below.

Connect the device to your computer via your USB cord (this comes with your phone) and load the Blackberry Desktop Manager software (if you don't have it download it at na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop).


Click "Application Loader" then "Add/Remove Applications."
Select "BlackBerry System Software" (along with any other applications you want to download to your phone) and then "Next."

Verify the list of applications you want to download on the next screen and click "Finish."
Allow the Blackberry software to reinstall.

Enter a new password under "Options" then "Password" (or the similar choice) on your BlackBerry.

Have just bought s/h Blackberry 8700G plus sim and have made phone calls. Have now downloaded Blackberry Desktop to allow e-mails. On connecting device it now has given me 6 chances to enter Password, but...


Keep continue with wrong password until six times, it will make your blackberry 8700G unlocked from old password. But you will lose all previous data on your phones after that blackberry unlocked and you can setup new password for your blackberry.

Reinstall your blackberry OS, some models need to reinstall their os after unlocked. If your unlocked blackberry 8820 still have same problem, bring that phone to nearest mobile repair shop and asking them to reflash your unlocked blackberry.

just use up all the attempts to unlock the password and the phone will atomatically wipe itself and then you will be able to set up your own password.

Forgot password blackberry curve 8310


I think all you can do it reset the device to disable the password completely. If you enter the password ten times incorrectly it will ask if you want to do a complete reset.

THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PERSONAL DATA.

If you can, back up your device using the Blackberry Desktop Manager application before doing a reset. Then you can re-load all your personal data after the reset, instead of having to type it all in again.

Phone locked & forget the password


No, this problem needs resetting at a dealers. The unit needs connecting to a computer with the right software.

If it really yours then you should go to your dealer with the appropriate id or proof of purchase.
