    Is there any way of unlocking this ?

    little fingers (my 10 month old little girl!) have managed to lock the phone up.

    thanks for any help.

    P:-)

    what do you mean by locked up? is it asking for a password?

    i try putting in the Handset PIN and it says incorrect PIN, I think she has somehow managed to change PIN.

    Would re-installing the OS clear the PIN , Or is there a factory reset procedure to change PIN back to default.

    the device wouldn't turn on for an age (red light flashing) when it eventually came back on this is what I was faced with.

    Pretty sure it's the security lock. i have a pin for the handset and one for the SIM card. Can't get to the stage of putting my code in for the SIM.

    if its 9 attempts, do those it will wipe the device, and then use desktop manager to do a restore. It will restore it from your last backup you did of your BB.

    as far is PIN change.. you cant do that really. every BB has a PIN that is unique to it.
