I forgot my password to unlock keyboard for blackberry 8310.I already use 9/10 attempts in this case if i try the last one software will reset and i will use everything.

Have you ever done a full backup with Desktop Manager? Did you ever synchronize your blackberry with Outlook? If the answer is yes to both of these questions, you can simply restore and re-synchronize once your blackberry is wiped.
If the answer is no, here is a free solution I found from another thread:
"To do this simply roll back your blackberry desktop software to a version where it doesnt automatically prompt you for an unlock password( 3.5a or even 2.7 would work), the tricky part is getting your non-serial bb to connect with non-usb software... i had to get some hardware but managed to backup 7290's this method... and then from there i just process the IPD files for evidence, granted that as of right now it is kind of hard to verify that evidence because i am still unable to get into the original evidence, but its nice for grabbing data from locked BB's."

I haven't tested this, but see if you can get a Female RS-332 / Female USB adapter from a computer store. The Female RS-332 end connects to a 9 PIN COM (serial) male port on your destop computer:
They are usually not found on laptops. Do not confuse this port with a VGA monitor port. It is also referred to as a DB9 or COM port. The other end of the adapter will be a female USB port in which you can connect your blackberry to the computer via a USB cable. Then, uninstall the current version of Blackberry Desktop Manager on your computer, then install version 3.5a on your computer. Go to:
Then select drop down menu and select Blacbkerry Desktop Software v3.5a. Versions 3.5a and under do not prompt the user for a password on the desktop side and thus can perform backup and restore functions for their blackberry. However, these versions of BB desktop software require a COM (serial) connection and this is where the adapter plays an importan part. With the proper adapter the software should be able to detect the device. Good luck

If you could get around it, then why the hell would they be boasting that blackberrys are secure.
You set a password.
You can't remember it.
You can't get around it.
Its like if somone found ur device on the street and u had info in the password keeper etc. would u like them to be able to hack into it without knowing your password?
I think not, sorry dude, take this a lesson learned.
