  • Locking password for blackBerry Smartphones - sorry if repetitive


    I was wondering if anyone can help, I have searched and searched, but found a few different solutions.

    My boyfriend and I both have the blackberry bold 9700, but today, it has encountered a problem.

    He had his phone in his pocket, while we were in the middle of texting he locked his phone using the locking password and then when he went to read the message I sent him it would not unblock him his phone.

    He has never even changed the password or all parameters - don't really know how. I put his phone for him etc.

    He's on his attempt to 9/10 the password, tried to use the ALT key and what other advisde forums, but this has not helped the situation.

    Is there something else?

    It's pathetic if he will lose his contacts, as he never changed the password. (and no backup at all).

    All contacts are saved in the sim card if they stay? Help, please!

    Thank you.

    HI and welcome to the Forums!

    While that unfortunate, it seems that you have already read and tried all possible combinations to get the password entered correctly. Only the configured password will work... There is no 'master' password or 'backdoor' to unlock BB. With only an attempt on the left, there is virtually no hope of success. One thing that might have tried was to attach to a PC... If you know how to enter the password correctly on the PC keyboard, which would have reset the counter... but, once again, with one shot left...

    Since you say that there is no backup, then all personal information, including contacts, will be conscientiously deleted. According to me, which will also include those on the SIM card.


  • Locking password for blackBerry Smartphones based on the time-out

    Hi, new BB Bold and I have a password and can lock and unlock the phone.  However the phone automatically goes into lock down to 5 minutes.  Even if I set the Options-> the safety time of 1 hour option it hangs still in about 5 minutes.

    What should I do about it?  The ideals?  The store said that I had to take a safety, go back to my computer, clean the phone and restore.  If this does not work I am to get a new phone.  Just bought a few weeks ago.

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    You could try a battery pull above all

    drastic measures on your part!

    No data will be lost when you do the following: remove the battery while the device is activated. Remplacer replace after one minute, let the device reboot 1-3 min, see if the problem is corrected.
    Thank you

  • Passwords for blackBerry Smartphones

    When I tried to sync with my computer, asked me my password. I must have failed to make a note of it and I don't remember so that if I can't get to the next attempt he will erase all my data. How can I contact BlackBerry to reset it in order to avoid this problem?

    BlackBerry cannot help with your password.  The password contains a number?  You can use the ALT key on the blackberry for Numlock.  No other options here, try to disconnect the computer and do a battery pull.  Let the boot of the phone upwards and try your password again on the device only.  This will give you some further tests to amount out.

  • Password for blackBerry Smartphones

    Hi guys,.

    I try to connect my PC to my Curve 8520 using the desktop software.  The software sees the phone and asks for the password, but when I try to enter the password it does not recognize.  I tried to change the password on the phone, but it still does not work.  I can't disable the password as the telephone as pulled down an exchange policy to our headquarters that is stops this...

    All thoughts

    Kind regards

    Simon Paul

    Often users with more than one digit in their password will only press the ALT key for the first digit and not those who follow, so for example, if your password "1234", you could have by pressing "Alt 1234"on the device, making the real password to be "1st".

    Who is? It sounds familiar to your use?

    In order to verify the manner in which you enter your password on the device... do you think that you enter several numbers, but in fact are not?

    Hello and welcome to the community!

    I recommend that you try to start safe mode:

    • KB17877 How to start a smartphone BlackBerry in Mode safe

    It will take several attempts to get the combination of keys ESC (press/release/hold) OK, so be patient. When properly in Safe Mode, see what happens.

    If the behavior continues, then well... think what happened just before this behavior started? A new application? An update? A theme? Something else? Think carefully that the slightest change can be causal... and try to undo all that was.

    But if the behavior continues mode without failure, you may need to consider more drastic measures - WIPE, OS Reload, BBSAK Wipe/Reload and the process of reloading OS 'skeleton '. To prepare, you should be sure that you have a full backup of your PC... Please see the Backup link in my sig auto on this post for instructions.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones cannot lock the phone through blackberry ID


    I take a phone of my coleague who has left the company. For some reason, I can't able to connect on the phone. Firstly I didn't at first, the password of my coleague ex, I went online and changed the password. However, when I want to connect with my new password to unlock the phone, I have this message:

    "You have exceeded the number of attempts to connect.

    For security reasons, you have been locked for 15 minutes. "Click on forgotten password if you need create a new password.

    But after 15 minutes and try again, the message... helpppp

    You try the BlackBerryID, or the security password, on the device?

    It looks like the BlackBerryID if you are locked out for 15 minutes.

    A wrong entered security password would give you only a message something like «wrong password 2/10»

    Then, to change the BBID of this device and make it 'your own' device, you'll need to do a wipe of the device security. This will delete all the data in personal, contacts, calendar, etc. and restore the State of the plant basically.

    Hi, (question could be repeated)
    Before you buy BlackBerry, I knew that its market is not as varied as android, but to my great disappointment I couldn't find apps 'base' which should have a smartphone. I need a free application map or navigation and to my great disappointment that BlackBerry maps does not work in India, in addition to that google don't provide maps for BlackBerry.
    Please tell me is there any map application can attest to BlackBerry? Would be happy to install in my machine.
    Thank you

    No, as I said, they are available in Android apps which you call is able to run for the right amount of.
    You will need to get them on an Android App store, there is a good app called Snap specially written to help with this...

  • Storage of applications for blackBerry Smartphones

    Hey everyone... I use my 9790 bold, he repeats to me my memory to applications is 512 MB internal memory of the phone's 8 GB! So is there anyway to increase this limited storage for applications? In addition, this space does not increase if I use an external MicroSD memory?


    There are three types of potential memory on a BB: 1) application memory, the device memory) 2 and 3) Media/SD Card Memory.

    Application memory - it is the most important; It is protected (not available to the user), dedicated and fixed (size: 512 MB in your case) space that is available to the House of the OS itself, as the destination for the installation of applications (more a few storage applications, overhead and other costs). You can't touch AppMemory. You cannot improve the maximum AppMemory that your BB has. It is what it is. Applications can install only here... There is no other choice.

    The device memory - it is space on your BB you can touch these files, images, media, etc. In general, it is not very big, but it is available.

    Memory card SD/Media- is what it says... your SD card to store files, media, photos, etc.. It can be as large as your BB OS can support... see this KB:

    • KB05461 Sizes of card MicroSD taken in charge by the BlackBerry device software

    On some devices/OS levels, you can see 'Free file' (Options > status), I think this is equivalent to AppMemory. You can see on other devices, all the memory usage levels three (Options > memory). Here are some tips to use:

    • KB02843 What is the function of low memory manager on the BlackBerry smartphone
    • KB14320 How to maximize space and power battery life on the BlackBerry smartphone
    • KB14213 Call logs, SMS text and email messages are deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone

    Finally, it is always important to correctly close applications when you are finished with them. Using the back or on the red button won't do that - those leave the app to decide what to do... and some let themselves memory-resident, consumes resources on your BB, slowing down the overall performance. On the contrary, to close an application, tap on and select 'Close' or 'Quit'... which force the application to be closed, freeing resources for your new use it consumed. Some applications will always be running (in general - BBMessenger, browser, homescreen, phone and Messages)... but, you should always close them properly - especially the browser... If we leave on a web page, it will not consume only additional resources, but the power of the battery as well.

    In addition, each time a random strange behavior or slow creeps, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. 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 - about 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. Some have taken to do this on a regular basis as a preventive measure... some as often as once a day. Others got the app QuickPull to automate a simulated Batt Pull.

    Good luck!
