i have just purchased blackberry curve 9320, i put in a code to lock phone and it was working fine and unlocked every time but now after being in my pocket most of the day some buttons must have been pressed and it says phone locked and on screen it says- 'type in blackberry to continue' (it never said this before), i do this then it asks for my code, i have put in my original code (4 numbers) and it says code incorrect, i am now on my last attempt, what will happen if i try and have no more attempts left? will it go on lock down and cost me a fortune to get fixed or is there something i can do to prevent this
really would like some help, thank you for reading

Thank you so much for reply. Because I only just bought the phone I don,t have a lot of stuff on it yet so not to bothered about it being wiped clean, but I did unlock phone from network when I received it so will I need to unlock from network provider again or will that still be in place

Ahhh...you indeed got very lucky! Here is the more detailed information about password entry...
For instance, if your password is
and you enter
the actual result will be
You must enter
in order to wind up with ab123. So, in this example, while on the BB keyboard you think you are typing ab123, you are actually typing ab1er.
On your BB, when you type your password, you should get just a moment where each character is shown in the clear before it changes to an *. Watch closely the next time and you may see a surprising result.
