Forgot my Playbook Password! Please Help.

I just bought my playbook 2 days back and while setting the device I put password on it. Now I forgot that password and already attempted 9 out of 10 times with different wrong password. In between I had to write the word 'blackberry' about 3 times as the device suggested.  I don't know how to unlock this device now. Please help me!

@ekramul, I'm afraid if you've forgotten your password there is no way to recover it - it is one of the security features of Blackberry devices. As soon as you enter the password incorrectly 10 times the device will be wiped. Do you have a recent backup?

@Xandros, as your problem does not relate to the original posters problem can I suggest you start a new thread with the problem.

@Xandros - you appear to have piggy backed on several other people's thread where they are having different issues than yours. Suggest you start a brand new thread with your problem to save confussion.

Re: Forgot my Playbook Password! Please Help.

@Jamead1981- many thanks for your reply. Actually the device is new and I just got it 2 days back. I don't have any personal file or data in it and no backup aswell. I was actually exploring it. It will be nice if you please explain what iS ' wiped'? Dose it mean the device is going to die! I mean I will not be able to use it anymore? :smileysad:
