My son's handheld BB curve 8300 is locked and he can't remember the password. Any suggestions?

There isn't a way around the password on the device. If he enters in the incorrect password 10 times the device should wipe itself, and take the password off. He will lose any unsaved data, though.

When the device wipes itself, do i have to go back to the wireless carrier to get it working again?  Or should it just work like before.  I suppose he loses all unread text messages and emails and the phone log probably goes away as well?

Thanks!

No, you don't need to go back to the carrier for anything. Yes, you will lose all messages/contacts/meetings/tasks/etc from the device. Unless you have a recent backup that is.
