Re: Forgot password + answer of recovery question

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

You did not say, so we must guess that you are asking about your BB ID credentials...there are other possibilities, but that sounds like the most likely. As such, this KB applies:

  • KB26361 How to change or reset a BlackBerry ID password

Good luck!

Re: Forgot password + answer of recovery question

I din't find this helpful as you need the current pasword, but what if you have forgotten you password? Is there anyway that Blackberry can send an email to my hotmail telling me what my password is fro my BB ID?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

If you continue reading that KB, you will find this section:

That would seem to be exactly what you need. Is it not??

 

Good luck and let us know!
