Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Somehow, a device lock password got set...either by you or someone else, but a human was definitely involved. Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass it. Only the created password can unlock it. There is no "master" or "override" password to bypass it. If you truly cannot figure out who created this password on your BB, then your only option is to fail 10 times, resulting in a complete WIPE of your BB, and you start over. Hopefully, you've been taking regular backups and/or using a Desktop Organizer (e.g., Outlook) as your master data source so that you can recover more easily.

Good luck!
