    I just got my used blackberry 8830. i dont know the last users password and have no instruction manuals and haven't had the chance to go to my current carrier (verizon) to register the blackberry. Do i have to wait for my carrier to provide me with service before i can try to access the phone without knowing the previous owners password and h, ow can i do this?

    any help would be great!!!

    Just keep entering an incorrect password like 10 times, and then you'll get a warning that the device is going to be formatted. Go ahead and let it format. Once this is done, I believe it should let you in.
