My father purcheased this used and was told the personal data was deleted. When we tried to synchronize the date from the computer to teh organize it asked for a passcode. I contacted the seller and he said he never used the synch feature or set a passcode. Is there a default passcode on the organizer or is there a way to reset it without knowing the current one? This model is no longer supported by Sharp so we are on own trying to figure this out. THe manuals do not even mention a passcode but I did find the screen where you change it (but you need the current passcode to remove or change it).

If the handset is locked, frozen, or unresponsive, you can hard reset it using the hardware keys instead of the menu.
A hard reset restores the original factory settings and erases content, including downloaded ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. This feature allows for resetting of sound profiles, display settings, and phone or memory card settings.
To perform a hard reset using the hardware keys, follow these steps:
Save any open files, and back up all necessary data on the internal memory if the device is responsive and can synchronize files. See: Prepare for a master reset and back up data on Android
Turn off the phone.
Note: If the phone is unresponsive and does not turn off, remove the battery and then re-insert it.
Hold down the Volume Up, Volume Down, and Power keys simultaneously.
When the Samsung log appears, continue to hold the keys until the master reset menu appears.
Press the Volume Down key to select Delete all user data when the Android master reset menu appears.
Press the Power key to confirm your selection.
Press the Volume Down key to select Yes – delete all user data.
If you have forgotten the screen passcode, you'll need a computer to restore your iPad as long as you have synchronized your device with the computer. You can reset your passcode and resynchronize the data from the device or restore it from an iCloud backup.
If you are using another computer that you never synchronized the iPad with, you will only be able to unlock the device and you will lose the data on the iPad.
Here's also a guide for your reference.
Step 1. If you've matched up your iPhone with iTunes, you can reestablish your device.
Step 2. Associate your gadget to the PC you matched up with.
Step 3. Open iTunes. On the off chance that requested a password, attempt another PC you've synchronized with, or utilize recuperation mode.
Sit tight for iTunes to match up your gadget and make reinforcement.
Once the synchronization and reinforcement have finished, click Restore. After clicking Restore, you have successfully remove iPhone passcode with iTunes.
In order for you to unlock your Blackberry Q5, it implies that you will loose all the data and information on it. The only way to have your data and information intact is to unlock it with the actual or correct password or passcode. If you probably know the person that locked it, as him/her for the password or passcode, but if you don't know the person, then your device will have to reset itself back to factory settings after trying with several passwords which are not correct.
So to unlock it, it means you have to keep trying to use different passcode till the device ask you to type in the word 'blackberry' for a reset. I advise that you remove your memory card before trying this.
Due to 5 consecutive incorrect passcode,youll be ask to wait for couple of minutesa. After waiting,you can now enter 12345 as your passcode. It then should be your current password. If you want you can also hard reset phone by typing *#7370# to delete all of the settings. It will delete all of the phone settings and data from your phone memory so better yet have a back up of your personal data.
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.
A quick and dirty method of getting your data to near flat file format is to find a computer with the old RS-232 serial port and use a third party software called "Rupplynx" v 6.0 or 6.1 to download the data from the Wizard to the Rupplynx software on the PC. The backup/extracted files that you create with this software will be binary but the address book, memo etc data portion of the file will be ASCII text that is readable (beware, even the secret entries are readable so you will have to guard the computer that the files are on). A better but slower way is to copy and paste the uploaded and displayed data text in the Rupplynx 3rd party software to a Word document or plain *.txt file. I did this for the most important data since I also had about 10 years worth of memos and contacts.
I copied the whole subdirectory with the binary files from a windows XP computer that had an RS-232 port to a Windows vista computer and the program ran fine so that I could get the data into a compatible format such as Word or plain text file format. (via copy and paste) Rupplynx also has an export option to export to different file formats...
