Security wipe


I accidentally wiped all the data off my phone by getting the password wrong when connecting it to my computer because the password was the letters rather than the numbers on the same button as I had thought

The only thing I am concerned about is the photos that I took from the camera on the phone and were not saved to the memory card are gone and the are rather important! Is there anyway of getting them back?

Thanks a lot

Re: Security wipe

IF you stop where you are now, and try connecting your BlackBerry to the PC and running a free PC software called Zero Assumption Recovery, you might get some of them to undelete.


I am not confident, the security wipe on the BlackBerry is pretty solid.
