BlackBerry smartphone how to enter my PIN code?

I just changed on my brand new 9000 "BOLD". The first thing I'm being prompted to enter is to enter my PIN code in 3 tests. I have 2 left.

I guess that's the PIN that came with the BB and not the SIM card pin, right? (1)

I'm new to BB and unfamiliar with the keyboard. My main concern is to know how to switch between letters and numbers? (2)

There is a '123' in the upper right corner of the screen, which I think shows the num lock mode. According to the "Getting Started Guide" by pressing the 'alt' should turn on lock num - but not on my BB mode, at least not not before entering the PIN code.

How can I get the unit off NumLock mode? (3)

.. and when I get out of lock mode number, which must be pressed to enter a number, the 'alt' or the 'sym '? (4)

Press the 'alt' or 'sym' must be held down while pressing the number key or does it just to push first? (5)

Thanx, Jesper


Hey. Thanks for the reply.

I understand it now, but I got a SIM card locked in the process :-)

First, it was of course the SIM card pin code and not the BB pin code which is asked to enter. The misfortune is that you can't control your device at all until you enter the right pin only 3 attempts. This means that you need to understand how the use of the aerodrome of keys works on this neverseen before keyboard the first time you use it. There is no help, and you don't see what you write, because it is simply displayed as *. In addition to that, you sit down with this new cool device and you're really impatient. It took me 10 minutes to lock the card!

5 minutes later with another sim card, I learned that I had to just press the [sym] open a graphics pad with which easily enter you the digital PIN using the trackball.

I wish that this was mentioned in the "Start Guide".

Cheers, Jesper

  • BlackBerry smartphone how to enter pin code? said 'left 3' but pin is 4 digits

    Sorry, I write this in welcome, what is bad, so I'm it again here.

    I am a beginner.

    I have a new Curve 9300.

    My ISP gave me a card that I put in the phone.

    My phone now wants me to enter my PIN, which is 4 digits long.

    Somehow I must have accidentally pressed the first digit already

    because it says "3 to the left".

    I tried to remove this first digit with the delete key, but it still says "left 3.

    I also tried out the battery and card and put them backwards,

    but he always says '3 left', even though I did not yet support a number yet.

    How to remove the first digit, or how to start the phone without

    the first digit of the pin code already pressed to have accidentally?

    That means "3 attempts left", you have already entered a wrong, I think.

    In this case, it seems to be for your SIM unlock PIN, a four digit number that you have assigned through your SIM card to lock. This isn't the normal security password unlock.

    Good luck.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones how verizon categorize messages "pin", anyone know?

  • BlackBerry Sprint 8830 BlackBerry Smartphones - how reach us mode debugging...?

    I searched for two days in the world and cannot locate how we enter in to the way of debugging on the 8830.

    I need to access the Ec/lo Rx and the SID #, currently I can get on the home screen signal strength by pressing the ALT + NMLL (changes the graphics signal to digital, i.e. - indicator 80)

    Please, I could really use some help with this so we can diagnose repeaters on our campus for the company.

    Thank you


    Well, to answer my own question, I now found the answer.

    Unfortunately, the 8830 and some other newer BlackBerrys do not easy to get this type of technical information.

    You must:

    1. Have a login/password to (last updated 05/30/2008)
    2. On the BlackBerry meadows ALT + CAP + H and leave it on this screen.
    3. Once connected to the # 1 link, you will be asked to enter your PIN code #, Uptime and postal code of the corresponding to your device.
    4. You will then receive an unlock code that is specific to this information (if you leave this on the blackberry help screen, the number of operating time will be different, so your code will be different.)
    5. Then enter the code for unlocking on BlackBerry, now the ALT key for numbers, the capitals are not necissary.
    6. This will give you access to the app Mode Trace Engineering
    7. 'Radio Engineering' selection screen
    8. Select screen "CDMA Engineering"
    9. Select "Operational information" (ec/io of 2nd line 3rd line rss)
    10. Scroll down to 'Neighbor set details' and get 1st line driver active, 2nd to the 20th will give nearby sites with ec/io for each.

    * Copy the following code will work for 30 days, then you will need to get a new code in the same way.

    I hope this helps everyone!

  • BlackBerry Smartphones how do I know if my PIN is free or locked?

    I bought a used unlocked blackberry, I use it only as a phone right now

    I not have data on it but will be "hanging upwards" to data complete blackberry in a few months when I return a book BB.

    How can I find out if the PIN on this one is locked or free?

    Right now I can still return it to the seller if there is a problem, but in a month if I try to connect it and can't, I'll be out of luck.

    The guy gave me the receipt original and said it was never connected, but I want to be sure.  I tried to contact my provider (Fido), but the guy knew nothing about a PIN code.

    Thank you

    Are you referring to make sure your phone is unlocked? If so, if the phone is a Rogers phone, and you currently have it work on Fido, it is an unlocked phone. Unlocking the phone is required to use the phone on any other carrier.

    Now then, if you want to make sure that the STEM was not put to the index as a stolen phone, thereby ensuring that your BlackBerry data will work later in time, the easiest way would be to contact the original wireless services provider (one that displays on the splash screen when the phone starts first). You can then explain to them that you bought the used device and I want to just make sure that the phone is not stolen and so on the blacklist, at their end. They should be able to find this information quite easily. Note: you will need to probably the device IMEI, which is located behind the battery or you can also get it by going to Options > device > device and state information.

    I hope that info helps!

  • Change of PIN ASSET in the redirector again combined PIN blackBerry Smartphones how

    I recently installed Desktop Manager 4.7 for my new 9000 "BOLD".  I can sync everything except the e-mail in Outlook 2003 (SP3).  Redirector comes up with my previous curve handset PIN.  When I run the Desktop Manager application, it recognizes and asks if he should change the active device to device.  I click Yes but nothing happens.  Where can I change the pin of the device 'ACTIVE '?

    I can't get redirector to work becvause I can't change the PIN code.

    I had the same problem. I googled: "blackberry redirector change pin code" and found many people with the same problem. Software not only sloppy, I am amazed to see no response from anyone to BB on this forum.

    Here's what worked for me:

    1 uninstalled the Blackberry Desktop software.

    2 restarted.

    3 reinstalled new version (4.7) of Blackberry desktop software.

    4 restarted.

    5 connected my phone via USB. This time, he turned off the PIN.

    If the above does not work, you can just remove all branches of the registry with the Blackberry Research in Motion... you're on your own if you do this. A simpler solution is to create a new connection on the Windows System...

    1. how to restore the Mail app?

    With a strong carrier network (for example, not only WiFi), I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2, each should result in a message from your BB... Please wait just before moving on to the next step):

    1) register HRT

    • Please wait "the Activation' Messages, one per already configured e-mail account, arrive in your Messages. If you have not already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

    3) restart

    • With power ON, remove the hood back and remove the battery. Wait a minute, then replace the battery and cover. Power on and wait patiently through the long reboot-~ 5 minutes...
    • See if things return to functioning. Like all computing devices, BB suffers from memory leaks and others... with a hard reboot is the best remedy.

    I hope that will move things again for you! If this isn't the case, then you should contact your mobile provider for formal support.

    N ° of BB devices lack a complete email client on them. Instead, they depend on the BIS service to provide messaging functionality. BIS is active when you have also listed Internet/personal email where you currently see only Enterprise. All services of BIS, are sent to the device via data carrier network... contact them are therefore the right approach to discover why their network is no longer to deliver to you the services that you pay for.

    Good luck and let us know!

    (5) you should see a list of applications ready to be installed for your Blackberry. Press Next and finish, and that you are well on your way to get your Blackberry to life. Congratulations! Just unplug and let the process finish completely.

    NOTE: If you do not display the list of applications mentioned in step 5 and instead to see the message "the Blackberry Desktop Software has no Blackberry Device Software for the device you have connected to the computer. Contact your wireless service provider or system administrator', then you must download the Blackberry operating system for your support and your device.

  • BlackBerry smartphone how to add BlackBerry Messenger Contacts?

    I recently bought the phone BlackBerry 8300 World Edition and found the tutorial online to be quite useful.  Unfortunately, I found myself stalled because I want to add contacts so that I can start conversations on the BlackBerry Messenger network.  Can anyone tell how to add contacts and send a message to them?

    Kind regards
