Re: Blackberry ID password and receovery question answer forgotten

Hi melvynbd


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums


You have to remember either your BBID password or the security question , otherwise you are struck !

You can try calling your Carrier O2 if they can help you in resetting your BlackBerry ID password Or login to your email account that you used for BlackBerry ID , search your Inbox and find the original email which was send for BlackBerry ID confirmation , you can delete your BlackBerry ID from there which will allow you to use the same email or username for your BlackBerry ID .

If all above fails then as last option you have to Create a new BlackBerry ID , for help refer to this Knowledge Base Article :

KB26694 : How to change the BlackBerry ID on a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or BlackBerry smartphone


Please note, while doing so you'll loose access to any of your paid apps that you purchased from BlackBerry World.


Good luck.
