I am locked out of my blackberry. I used it earlier this morining and then went back to use it again and my password would not let me in. I am up to my 9th try and it says it will wipe my phone if I enter in one more wrong password. It would be devastating if my phone was wiped as I have not been able to back it up due to a computer crash that took several weeks to fix. How do I bypass the password without wiping my phone? I have the blackberry software on my computer, but its asking me for the password as well. My phone is a blackberry curve 8330.

Lee, there is no workaround on a password... you can not bypass it. What would be the point of the password if you could?
You likely THINK you have an uppecase character or numeral in our password, when in reality, you don't.
So if your password were "123t"
It could actually be "wert"
But you are SO close to the end of the chances, you gotta get it right. I see this problem asked daily where a user thinks the password is one thing, and it is another.

Just thought of something here if your device is used for work purpose you can always ask your administrator to send you a device password before you even get to ten attempts.
