Hi everyone, I'm newish to this, but I am extremely annoyed with my phone and desktop manager. I had put on the keypad lock on with a 4 digit code, since the 8900 curve kept making phone calls to people in my pocket. I have recently got another new macbook pro and downloaded the latest device manager so that I could do an overdue update/backup. When I connected the phone to the computer, it asked for my password. Confused, since the only code I have ever used was the 4 digit number, so typed that in, lost 2 attempts, so disconnected phone from computer. Now phone wanted password, put in number, still losing tries. Have researched on internet, to see that I need to go into the phone settings, yet it needs the password before I can do that. Tried all sugestions of 1234, etc, now I have lost everything.
People are saying that if you have key lock on, without a password for device manager, but just for keypad lock, you have to turn this off before reattaching to device manager......basically, is this true ?
I hope not..since I will probably have to 'throw my toys out the pram' at blackberry, I have lost a great deal of contacts, and I also have to spend a few hours putting everything that I can remember, back on......sorry for an essay out of me !!!!! : )

If you had a four digit password, it is common that users might only depress the ALT key for the number on the first digit, so if the password were "1234", you might try the alternative "1ers".
But, cypher that to what your numeric password's alpha alternative might be.
Does this make sense?
And if you read somewhere about default passwords like 1234, that's a crock, there's no such thing.
The password is what you set it to be, there is no reset or default, otherwise the security on these devices would be a joke.
