How can i avoid wiping my device?

Hello, My blackberry 9300 has reached its maximum number of wrong passwords. I borrowed it to a friend who tried guessing my password until he reached the limit. When i try to unlock it, it says "Enter "blackberry" to continue". im afraid to do so because i heard that it will wipe everything on my device. please help me out, is there another way i can unlock it without wiping it, there is some very important documents and information i need. Please help me out, PLEASE...
