Re: password

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Oh my...I hope that this is the only problem you have, but I suspect there will be many many more. A reputable and knowledgeable seller would never have sold you a BB with the password still assigned. Anyway, the way to cure this is to keep trying and failing to enter the password...after 10 times (normally, can be fewer), the BB will wipe itself clean and remove the password requirement. Hopefully...

Good luck!
