I just bought my playbook 2 days back and while setting the device I put password on it. Now I forgot that password and already attempted 9 out of 10 times with different wrong password. In between I had to write the word 'blackberry' about 3 times as the device suggested. I don't know how to unlock this device now. Please help me!
Solved! Go to Solution.

@ekramul, I'm afraid if you've forgotten your password there is no way to recover it - it is one of the security features of Blackberry devices. As soon as you enter the password incorrectly 10 times the device will be wiped. Do you have a recent backup?

@Xandros - you appear to have piggy backed on several other people's thread where they are having different issues than yours. Suggest you start a brand new thread with your problem to save confussion.
