Curve 8330 device password does not 'disable'

Security options> general settings > password is set to enabled. CD with phone, help guides all just say to 'turn off blackberry device password, set the password field to disabled. When enter on 'enabled' i get options to: change password, wipe handheld, verify security software, save, close, full menu. There is no way to disable the password. Any ideas anyone? Thanks.

Re: Curve 8330 device password does not 'disable'

-your bb was probabaly on enterprrise server before and if you like you can remove as per instructions on this link:

- its a good idea to keep it locked though becasue if you ever loose your BB, the stealer or finder will never have access to your personal data on BB.
