Forgot password - final password attempt

I'm on my final password attempt and I think I know what it is but don't want to risk wiping the phone. If I leave my phone for a few hours and go back to it then will I be able to attempt another 10 times?

NO,

 

If you remember the password then why you tried 9 wrong attempts, hope you have taken backup of your device earlier or BlackBerry Protect enabled in your device otherwise you may be in trouble.

 

Good luck

Re: Forgot password - final password attempt

I've only just remembered what it might be.

 

How about if I take the battery out and leave it for a bit? Will it allow me to try again without resetting?

Re: Forgot password - final password attempt

Hello laurena86

 

 

As unleashurself already mentioned , No you cannot reset the counter . You can perform a Battery pull Restart and after reboot , your device will prompt you to enter the Device password , then you have to enter the correct password .

 

I think you You might have a mixture of different characters in your password,and you are not able to properly enter those on the BlackBerry  keyboard. For example , if your password is

laurena86

  • And you enter l > a >u > r > e > n > a > alt > 8 >6
  •  the actual result will be = laurena8f
  • You must enter
  • l > a > u > r > e > n > a > alt > 8 > alt > 6
  •  to get laurena86 on your device.

 

So, while on the BlackBerry  keyboard you think you are typing laurena86, you are actually typing laurena8f. Think carefully and then enter the password .
