    A buddy of mine recently bought a bb and I was helping him set up his DM. Well when I went to connect it to the DM it asked for a device password, we've tried every password he uses on the device and none worked. Now the bbs' keyboard is locked, and the security code he had before is no longer working. He's on password attempt 9/10.....I don't want to lock the whole device up! What do I do?

    sometimes the password is just blank thats what I have heard
    however don't kill me if it breaks your phone
    you can however recover it, if it goes dead

    Well it says "Warning, last password attempt. Information will be erased if password fails"

    He hasn't hooked it up to DM yet, so he hasn't had a chance to do a back up yet....

    It won't allow me to leave the password field blank. He called the service provider, and it's after hours!

    Got this figured out finally!

    So my buddy says "The password I use to unlock my phone is 1971, but I don't hit the alt key when I type it in, does that make a difference?"

    So naturally I type wczw on the bb keyboard and viola, bb is unlocked!

    Thanks for the quick replys guys!
