    Yeah, pretty much. After ten unsuccessful attempts to get in, it will wipe itself.

    IF there is no data on the device that is needed and IF you truly can't remember the correct password, then go ahead and wipe the device.
    You can do this easily by plugging it into a charge source, try entering passwords until it asks you to enter "BlackBerry", type in "blackberry" then another wrong password, and keep doing the BlackBerry and then a wrong password until it warns you you are at your last attempt, enter the info again and the device will perform a security wipe.
    Once it has completed and the device reboots, it will be in an "out of the box" state and you can then set it up to your liking.
