Re: Cannot disable password for device!

You are the best!!! 

 

Worked great for me.  

 

I have a blackberry Curve 8330.  The "Encyption Mode"  was found in "Options / Media Card".  I changed the mode to NONE and it removed the little red lock.

Re: Cannot disable password for device!

Thanks for the directions.  It was the only thing that worked!!   I have a BB 8530 Curve through Sprint and when my company migrated back to MS Outlook from Lotus Notes, the set up required a password that I could not disable.  My colleagues using BB through Verizon could disable it.  Our IT department later disabled the password requirement and those on AT&T were able to disable it after take the battery out and letting it restart.

 

Thanks again!!!!

Re: Cannot disable password for device!

Try this.

 

Remove all the encryption optıons from "options-->security -->encryption", including memory card. Save and exit.

Now when you go to, "password", you should be able to disable it
