Re: forgot password

Hello wantu2much,


                                   It seems no other way to get Access to your messages or your smartphone,Your smartphone is secured no one can get access it without the password ,there is no other way but wiping .

                Always keep a backup regularly by using Desktop software or Blackberry Protect for such incident. 


Good Luck.

Re: forgot password

Unfortunately you are out of luck =(. The password is supposed to keep out users from guessing your password in the case your phone is lost or stolen. Your best bet is to do a wipe and check desktop manager to see if you have any back up of ur bb (which may occur when you update your os). all the best

Re: forgot password

As a small clarification, in this situation, the only thing to do is fail to enter the password the maximum number of attempts (usually 10). That will initiate the WIPE of the BB and return it to how it was when it was new, including removal of the device lock password. There is no other way, without the password, to initiate a WIPE as all other methods require successfully entering the password on either the device itself or to the PC (if attempting, for instance, to use LOADER to perform these steps).

Good luck!
