    I sure hope you have a recent backup on your computer.

    On a BB there is no backdoor to get around the password attempts.

    Good luck remembering your password or remembering your contacts info.

    This is why people should backup their devices often like I do. I've had this siruation before instead forgot my password but good thing I've backed it before so no worries there. Anyways try to remove the battery before it starts to wipe your phone it maybe risky but its worth keeping your 400 contacts and what not. This maybe your only option and I'd go for it and cross my fingers in hopes of a success.
