Blackberry 8900 Password - 10 Try Attempt Reset

Hi, I would like to set a password on my phone. Is there any way my phone will not wipe out all its memory after the 10th attempt?

I'm looking for a soloution to put the number of attempts up or deativiating the wipe out function.

 

I'm a bigginer on the blackberry. Any help or ideas?

 

Thanks.

If you want to use the device default password feature then this wipe off function can't be avoided.

Re: Blackberry 8900 Password - 10 Try Attempt Reset

Hi there!

 

As Tanzim has said, if you activate the password feature of a BB, it comes with all of the security protections thereon...including wiping the device after the set number of failed attempts. The number of attempts can be from 1 to 10, but zero and infinite are not available. There is no option.

 

Cheers!
