My Device: blackberry torch

going to get locked out as i have forgotten my password

hi there

 

my blackberry torch stopped working a few months ago and eventually because i need it for my company i gave up and just ran out to buy a curve to keep me going.  when i got in tonight i switched it on and it seems to be functioning reasonably well again.  however i have one problem because i havent used it since april i have completely forgotten my password

 

i am about to lock the phone on my next attempt,  i spoke to vodaphone and they advised me to come on here for support but i cant find that section?  i dont mind it all the data on the phone has to go missing but the woman at vodaphone made out it would kill the device completely?? anybody got any ideas?? help would be greatky appreciated

You will lose your data, but that's it.

 

What will happen is that the device will perform a Security Wipe.....removes the data, but your device will function just fine.  If you have made backups, then you have nothing to worry about, right?  :smileyhappy:

Well you should start making backups, then.  At least once a week.  :smileyhappy:

 

Yes, you'll be okay.  :smileyhappy:

 

Oh, and remember your password!  :smileyvery-happy:
