    Nice friend. You either need to get the password from him or be prepared to have your device completely wiped once you reach the tenth attempt at entering the correct password.

    Yeah, I agree nice friend...w/friends like that who needs enemies. All your info is gone after the 10th attempt, as RoGro stated. And if you have not been the type to do backups w/your Desk Top Manager, you are really going to have fun.

    Ouch that sucks. I would ask for the password and then if you cann't get it. Looks like you have to start from scratch.

    Does he have a BB? (you could return the favour)

    Seriously, if you don't have a recent backup, you need to get this "friend" to ante up.

    There is no way to circumvent the pw and get the data.

    LMAO ! Hope they realize how serious that is and quit with the prank. I would be seriously p.o.'ed if my bb got wiped. Hope you backed everything up.....
