Hi- I have a 9603- i am currently locked out of my app world and have forgotten the answer to my password question. Everytime i try and reset- it asks me my question then locks me out for 15 minutes so I am stuck in a loop.

The section of the KB you need is the section that includes the use of "CAPTCHA characters".

If you click through, from KB26361 to KB34137 ("For instructions on confirming the BlackBerry ID a
If you cannot do that (e.g., you deleted the email and do not have an archive to retrieve it from), then you fall out of the first half of my post 5 above, down to the second have (the choice you have to make).
