Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

Hopefully you don't have much on. keep doing the password and then a security wipe will be presented. Don't worry you will be able to reinstall your app world apps.

Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

Too bad, So Sad. You get 10 opportunities to get it correct. Then it is a total security wipe. After that you will lose everything on the tablet and will have to start from scratch. Are you sure it is your PB? One poster had two at his home. His wife picked up his and kept trying her password. Finally he clued in as to what was happening and managed to get it from her before it was wiped.

Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

They should do some marks on their PB

 

 

 

And, sorry to say that if you failed 10 passwords inserted, you will have to erase your PB, and everything on it will gone

Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

Hold down the red Power button and the two volume buttons all at the same time for 15 seconds.
Wait 1 minute, then hold the power button down until the red light comes on (3 or 4) seconds.
Unit will restart in about 1 minute.
Then you will have to connect to your laptop, download what you lost.
You can search on this web site to find the full correct procedure to reinstall everything.
In future do not forget your password. Read the Operating Info available at the Question Mark ? on your home screen

1. Hold down the red Power button and the two volume buttons all at the same time for 15 seconds.
2. Wait 1 minute, then hold the power button down until the red light comes on (3 or 4) seconds.
3. Unit will restart in about 1 minute.

RED light blinks continously but it still having a black screeen.

Re: forgot blackberry playbook password

Try the procedure again. Make sure all 3 buttons are down and the time is at least 15 seconds.
