    I am locked out of my Blackberry Z3. It runs Blackberry 10 OS. Someone entered the lockscreen password 4 times, and when I got to use the device I made a 5th wrong attempt. So now it says that I need to type "blackberry".

    Unfortunately, I cannot. My screen is cracked and I can't type "a". Device rotation doesn't work. I would like to get to the 6th attempt, since I know my password.

    Is there any way to get past this screen, without typing "blackberry"?

    Nope. This is a safety feature to prevent the device from wiping in your pocket, which is working against you this time. Most likely you will need a new screen- you'll probably want to replace it anyway if you can't type all the letters.

    Can you select an 'a' somewhere in the text on that screen and copy paste it into the password field?

    Agree you need new screen. Should be cheap to find new one.

    USD50 is not cheap. That's the price here. Blackberry devices are treated like royalty in my country.
