Help ASAP-Blackberry Curve is being wiped

I have a Blackberry Curve 8530. My phone locks itself after two minutes and I enter a password to unlock it. By accident, I entered it incorrectly the first two times and even though I was sure I entered the right password the third time, my phone started being wiped. So, I took out the battery right away and as of now the battery is still out of the phone. Is there anything I can do to get my information back/stop it from being wiped? Should I put the battery back in? Any help would really be appreciated!

Hi zukiharu

 

Welcome to Support Forums

 

 

Sorry to hear that ! By default  it set to 10 unless someone change the attempt option as in your case you got only 3 attempts. If we enter Incorrect password then for security reason our BlackBerry device will wipe itself up. And I sorry to say that if you don't have a backup then its all lost forever.

 

I think you are not able to properly enter your password on the BlackBerry  keyboard. For example , if your password is

zuki123

 

  • And you enter z > u >k > i > alt > 1>2>3
  •  the actual result will be
  • zuki1er
  • You must enter
  • z > u > k  > i >  alt > 1 > alt > 2 > alt > 3

 

to get zuki123 on your device. So, while on the BlackBerry  keyboard you think you are typing zuki123 but you are actually typing zuki1er

 

I hope it will help in future course.
