    Ok this morning I woke up and turned on be bb. When I clicked unlock, a message came up the said my password has expired and to create a new one. It let me create a new password without even entering my old password first! Is there a way to stop this?

    I don't think you can prevent it, but the timeout is very long. How long had you had it set? I think it's six months, at least.

    Are you on a BES? If so they can set the timeout to much shorter.

    My BES IT Policy requires a password, but I don't know what the timeout interval is. I had to wipe the device in mid June. That forced me to change the password. I haven't changed it since, so it's a lot longer than 2 weeks. But as BBEnriched pointed out, BES and BIS can have completely different rules.

    If you don't know what you typed, there's no way to recover it. Didn't you have to enter it a second time to confirm?
