    last night while i was sleeping my little brother came in my room and got my blackberry pearl 8100 and locked it out. i wasnt able to unlock it because he used up all of the 10 tries. when i press unlock it tells me to type blackberry and when i do, it says press to start emergency call. i don't know how to unlock it and called 911 twice last night trying. can anyone help?

    Damn that sucks. I thought it is just a timed lockout or it forces you to do a factory wipe...

    I hope you have a recent backup... I have a feeling you gotta wipe/re-install your OS and start from fresh... sorry

    yep, when you type in "blackberry" it will wipe your device and set it back to factory. there's no other way now.

    Only way would be to wipe your Blackberry and install the latest OS

    Press charges for destruction of personal property. Your phone is as good as a brick if it's locked to one carrier. Not that you should play musical chairs.
