Re: Playbook password virus

You sure this is YOUR Playbook? It just seems a little odd that someone with a working Playbook (that required a BBID in order to set it up and install apps) now suddenly doesn't know his BBID or BBID password.

Re: Playbook password virus

No. The BBID was given when you initially setup your PlayBook. If you don't know it, it will not proceed too much further without it. The PlayBook will be useless without it.

Re: Playbook password virus

How do you know the pin number if you can't access the device because it's locked?

Please forgive me if I sound harsh. This all just sounds a little strange. It sounds like you're someone trying to gain access to someone else's Playbook.

When you setup the device initially it should have prompted you to create a BBID and password, if you didn't already have one. The BBID is usually your email address and a password.

So, does this mean it's really not yours?
