Re: Final Attempt to put in my password in blackberry 9900...urgent

I wish I could be more positive but unless you have a backup of your data done with BlackBerry Desktop Software, BlackBerry Protect or a third-party app, you're going to lose your data.


One of the selling points of a BlackBerry phone is its security and when it comes to keeping people out of your locked phone, BlackBerry doesn't fool around. There is nobody on this planet, including BlackBerry itself, that can unlock your phone when it's password-protected. You might have to bite the bullet on this one and start over (unless, of course, you have a data backup as mentioned above).



Those are the facts, sorry if they don't help you at all. Cheers.  Smiley Happy
