I'm already in 9/10 try's and Don't want to lose the data on the phone.

Re: unlock my blackberry

if on BES, ask you BESAdmin to reset your password.


if not on BES, remove battery while on to reset it (incase caps lock or num lock is on)


then on your last attempt you will need to type it in with no mistakes.


Good luck
