What happens when a wrong password is entered more than 10 times?
Does it still wipe the device or what? Id actually like to set a password but Im scared that someone might type the password 10 times and screw my phone just out of ignorance or for fun

yes the device will be wiped and yes many people have told the story of their phone being wiped because someone was having too much fun~Matt

I agree with the others... password is a good protection for your Blackberry data and backup is a good solutions for restoring your data if the device somehow get wiped..
Just start to backup your Blackberry phone from time to time and you will get used to it.

- D'oh. Just ask.
It should be possible with an option to use more than 10 attempts. Hopefully, no one would bother with trying to enter the wrong password tons of times. That people who does this sort of thing are utterly useless is another story.

Also, it's not just 10 straight tries at a password. About 4 or 5 tries and it will prompt you to type the word "blackberry". I think it will ask that again after a few more tries. It also gives a waring on the 10th that the phone will be wiped."Distrust and caution are the parents of security." -Benjamin Franklin

It is possible to change it to fewer than 10 tries. 10 is the maximum, but it can be changed to as few as 3 attempts.

it erases ALL data
So this morning my friend and I were having a sleepover and I thought that it would lock her out for 30 seconds or a minute or whatever but it erased all the data and she didnt back it up... now i feel really bad. she claims shes not mad but if i were in her place i would hate me.
