    Phone has been working perfectly up until it was squeezed into a cup holder for a car journey. On removal the front screen keeps giving the message "unlock for all features and data".
    Entering the usual four digits will not unlock the phone and I just see the message "Enter blackberry" again.

    I am assuming that a series of random keys have been pressed during the car journey...... Is the only option a fully hard reset / wipe of device?

    TIA

    Enter the word 'blackberry', then proceed to enter your password again. This is so the device doesn't inadvertently wipe itself if you keep it in your pocket - or in a cup holder for instance!
