Accessing Password Keeper Data using Desktop Software

I recently had a pressure crack to the LCD on my Curve 8310.

I need to access my stored passwords in Password Keeper, however since the LCD is toast, can't read anything on the phone.

I'm waiting on a replacement LCD, but need Password, ASAP.

Is there any programs to view the program on the pc?

Re: Accessing Password Keeper Data using Desktop Software

There is nothing that will allow you to read anything in the password keeper.  You can make a backup and restore it to another BlackBerry.

Re: Accessing Password Keeper Data using Desktop Software

I tried a solution which did actuall work, so I figured I would post in case anyone else has this same problem.

 

I had previously backed up the data from my Blackberry Curve 8310 using the Desktop Management Software.

 

I downloaded a Simulatr for my Curve 8310 and installed the software.  I found the simulator at BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators - URL

 

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/resources/simulators.jsp

 

Once the program was installed I ran the program, which brings up an image of the phone.

 

I started my Desktop Management Software.

 

Now back in the Smartphone Simulator

In the menu, I selected "USB Cable Connected" which simulates connecting the smartphone.

 

Once I did this, the Desktop Management Software prompted me to create settings for then new phone.

 

Once I set up this new Virtual Phone, I Restored my backup from the Desktop Management Software to the New Virtual Phone.

 

I could then use the mouse to go to the Password Keeper and open the program.  It prompted me for my password and all of the data appeared.

 

Hope this helps someone else.  Good Luck.

@MarkPA

 

I came across your post last night and used it this morning - it worked wonderfully!  Just when I thought all was lost.

 

Thank you so much for your insights.  It was a Godsend - I really needed that information!
