Forgot password - final password attempt

I'm on my final password attempt and I think I know what it is but don't want to risk wiping the phone. If I leave my phone for a few hours and go back to it then will I be able to attempt another 10 times?

NO,

 

If you remember the password then why you tried 9 wrong attempts, hope you have taken backup of your device earlier or BlackBerry Protect enabled in your device otherwise you may be in trouble.

 

Good luck

I've only just remembered what it might be.

 

How about if I take the battery out and leave it for a bit? Will it allow me to try again without resetting?

Hello laurena86

 

 

As unleashurself already mentioned , No you cannot reset the counter . You can perform a Battery pull Restart and after reboot , your device will prompt you to enter the Device password , then you have to enter the correct password .

 

I think you You might have a mixture of different characters in your password,and you are not able to properly enter those on the BlackBerry  keyboard. For example , if your password is

laurena86

  • And you enter l > a >u > r > e > n > a > alt > 8 >6
  •  the actual result will be = laurena8f
  • You must enter
  • l > a > u > r > e > n > a > alt > 8 > alt > 6
  •  to get laurena86 on your device.

 

So, while on the BlackBerry  keyboard you think you are typing laurena86, you are actually typing laurena8f. Think carefully and then enter the password .
