    8700 - reset password tries?

    Advertisement



    Hello all-

    Very new to BB, had it two days. I have my BB set to automatic keylock and I always end up pressing buttons accidentally in my pocket- and therefore onluy have 4 password tries left!

    I know my password, but sooner or later I will accidentally dial more incorrect passwords and bl;ock myself- is there any way of reseting the password 'tries'?

    many thanks!

    Thanks for the link.... unfortunately it was pretty inconclusive- I wish this thing had a regular keylock like normal devices... I keep dialling wrong passwords by keys getting pressed in my pocket!

    I know what you mean. Why dont you use a holster or something instead of your pocket? I use the original nylon holster that came with my BB and I like it.

    hello-

    Yeah, it seems holster is the nly option... just annoying to know that eventually I'm gonna lose all my data unneccesarily...

    Doesn't a successful entry of the password reset the cycle back to 10?

    I believe what is happening to nosferatu is while the BB is in the pocket keys will be hit and then the enter key will be hit as well and cause 1 try, then this will happen again and has and has happened up to 4 times so far. Then nosf will enter the correct password and reset the tries to 10. Nosf is worried this will happen 10 times and wipe the BB.

    Sorry, I read it to read that he currently only has 4 tries left.

    Hi guys-

    you are both right- just realised a successful attempt restores it to 10 tries. It's unlikely that I'll make 10 accidental entries.... fingers crossed!
