Set New Code for Network ???

[ Edited ]

I seem to have forgot my Wireless file sharing password and was hoping someone knows how to reset it or what happens when you reach ten attempts because I know I can eventually remember it but not sure with four more chances, tries, etc. 


The help pages on the Playbook only provide details on how to use it or about it but not recovery.

Re: Set New Code for Network ???

A security wipe of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will erase all data and any downloaded applications and media (Including pictures/video taken on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or transferred via a PC)


Afterwards, you will basically have a 'like new' PlayBook.

If you have a backup of your PlayBook, you can restore previous personal data, pictures etc.


Otherwise, you will again set the Playbook up as new, enter your same BlackBerryID and password, etc., and proceed.
