Hi Blackberry dudes!
(sorry I don't own one - some very specific apps were available only on a different platform. Honest)

Anyway , my daughter has a Blackberry - don't know the model only that it's welded to her fingers and Dad isn't allowed to see it.
(I assume it's used to communicate with boys)


She's just texted me from her friends phone to say that another friend has changed the lock password (nice!) and so now she has 1 attempt to guess it

I've told her by text to switch it off. (that will be a first)

My plan is:
Try to sync with PC - to save data
Remove SIM
Remove memory card
Ask you gurus what the default wipe everything code is, or master reset or whatever (sorry , as I said I'm not a Blackberry user)

My guess is she'll loose data and contacts if saved on internal memory etc

Unless you chaps have any better advice?

Thanks!

Sorted.
Did as I said. Tears halted.
Sadly she hadn't backed up for a month (OMG dad that's a lifetime)
But phone now fixxored just hideous tuneless teenage shouty music to re-add.
