    Default Mass Storage Mode requires a device password??

    Hi there, i'm new to the Blackberry Perl, and new to this forum/site (it's fantastic - and has helped me with a few problems).

    I'm trying to find out how to fix an issue that has just surfaced. Previously, I could just plug in the cord that came with the BB to my USP port and down load my photos to the PC, but just now, when I do this, the BB says....

    "Mass Storage Mode is being activated. Enter your device password to grant access".

    I haven't put a password on, and I've never had to use one previously.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Default mass storage password

    It should be the same as the security code you would use when you lock your device and need to unlock it to use it again.

    [settings]>>>[options]>>>[security options]>>>[general settings]

    you can enable a password from here and should be able disable it, etc.

    that is the same message I get, but I know I have a password enabled. Sometimes the default password is 0000 or the last 4 digits of your phone number or something similar.

    It's the same as the device password. If you disable the device password, it should disable the Mass Storage Mode password. I'm on BES and cannot disable the device password, so I can't verify what I just wrote.

    Cool 8900 device manager password issue

    For some reason, the password u use to unlock your phone per usuall doesn't work when you enter it on the device manager.
    I got fed up of wasting time on this, so here's what i did.
    Simply go into options - password.
    Change it from 'enabled' to 'disabled'
    You'll be prompted to enter the password.
    Once thatčs done, just save the settings and try you device manager again.
    No more prompts for the password.
    Remember to re-enable your password when done.
