    Got BlackBerry from Dad; any way to remove password protection?

    Advertisement



    This is a really annoying problem for me because everytime I lock my pearl, I have to type in a password with a minimum of 4 keys to access it. Changing the password is fine but it is just an unnessesary annoyance. I have looked everywhere on the BB to find a way to turn it off because I would prefer something like push star to unlock it (like other cell phones) but can't find anything. In the security options, there is no option to remove it, just to change it. My Dad owned the Pearl before me and recieved it through his work then gave it to me. His work made the password this way and I was wondering if there is any way to remove this. Thank you,
    -Chris

    Go to Options > Security Options > General Settings. You can disable the password from there.
    Hopefully this will help. Let us know if there's anything else we can help with. Hope you're liking the Pearl.

    If there's a red * next to *Enabled, it is enforced by IT Policy. As long as you're NOT on a BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server), you will need to apply a blank IT Policy to remove the restriction. Follow the directions here: http://blackberry.ig3.net/

    Try disabling media encryption first then go back and try to disable the password in security options.
