Re: forgot password to unlock keyboard

The desktop and Device were at the same time requesting for password and for every failed attempt from stage 6/10 they prompted Enter "blackberry" to continue, then Enter password. This continued upto when I stopped at 9/10.

 

 I have since taken the final attempt with outcome that all datas in Contacts and Messages erased from device. Media files were unaffected. Other impacts are still being evaluated..

 

Presently, the device has been rebooted and contact data restored from backup copy. .

Re: forgot password to unlock keyboard

My father died, and i don't know his password, but yet, because it was a car accident, they want to be able to access it, and they think we know it. So hard lesson learned, eh?

Re: forgot password to unlock keyboard

I think the insurance company wants to know if your father was on the phone when the accident happened?

They do not need to access the device (it is a personal private vault after all). What they need is contact the phone carrier and ask them for official logs of phone calls on your father's phone line.

Re: forgot password to unlock keyboard

There is no password recovery method known for BlackBerry devices.

Your only possible way to recover the adressbook is if you have already made a backup, or if you have asked AT&T to store your address book on their servers.

hello milkshake1446,

if you haven't saved files, then read first sentence.
