PB "Hangs" during password entry

Hi,

 

I've been using a password for my PB and as from this morning, it doesn't accept my password anymore :smileysad: 

 

My PB now mentions that I'm attempting to enter it for the sixth (6 out of 10) times, accepts input (while showing the entered characters!!!) and doesn't do any after confirming my entry. It doesn't even increases the attempt counting (sticks at 6)...

 

And, unfortunately, the hard reset doesn't work anymore...

 

Help?

 

Marc.

Thanx, but unfortunately: the PB doesn't even react on landscape/portrait mode switching (changing the way I hold it)....

Re: PB "Hangs" during password entry

Hi Aandras,

 

The PB isn't connected to our company's BES/IT policy.
