Re: password unlock blackberry bold 9780

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

There is no "master" or "override" password to unlock your BB...only the user-created password can do so. Given your description, your only hope is to fail the maximum number of times (default = 10) and allow it to wipe clean of all your apps, data, as well as the password requirement. Then, you start over.


BBs are the most secure mobile devices available...but a key component of that security is the human factor. When that fails, there is nothing that the device can do to help. Security is paramount.


Good luck!
