    Unhappy Reset security lock, locked out of phone

    i have a blackberry 9000, i bought it off ebay. it has a security lock on it and the seller doesnt know it. i havent been able to get in the phone to do a reset. is there any way i can reset te security lock password.
    i read on a forum someone who had the same problem but with a blackberry 8800 this is what they got told

    --I bought a phone from eBay and I asked the seller for password and he says that he doesnt know it because he is a reseller.

    So now i am stuck with this phone, Can anyone help me just hard reset it.
    I dont care about information thats in there. I just need to start using this and i have never used it so i can careless about saved info

    response was
    Just enter any password until the device resets itself. It has a factory default of 10 wrong passwords and then it will reformat itself to factory specs

    does the same apply with the bold 9000.. i didnt want to try incase something went wrong

    The Bold is setup the same way. Enter the wrong code 10 times and it will restore itself to factory settings.
