If the password is entered more than the set number of times (default is 10), the phone is automatically wiped and still locked.
With the Blackberry phone, if you forget your password it is not able to be recovered. Always use a work or phrase you can easily type accurately, and you will never forget.
The full fix is to reload the operating system, and start over again. You cannot restore the phone from the backup, unless you know the password the phone had when that backup was created.
It is a wise idea to not let your children play with your phone. If you do, a wise idea is to remove the password if you want to allow your children to play with the phone. You can always put it back after.
