    Password on BB without auto wipe

    Advertisement



    Is there a way to password protect my blackberry so that it will not automatically wipe itself after 10 incorrect attempts? I want it to be password protected but some people who don't understand this will happen find it funny to try to get into the BB repeatedly.

    yes...just don't set a password...you can still lock the phone but to get in all then need to do is hit alt+* then talk...but it won't let your phone be wiped by some a-hole with no manners...why would you leave you blackberry out of your hands long enough for some one to do that? apparently you're not as addicted as the rest of us...but it'll happen then you won't be able to put it down

    That's grounds for a severe butt-whoopin'.

    Password is there for security reasons.
    So magellan0547's question is very serious: "why would you leave you blackberry out of your hands long enough for some one to do that?"
    I'm curious too...

    password protect it, do backups regularly, if some one tried to repeatedly get into your BB and the device wipes, crack them upside the head, that will hopefully give a clue to respect for other peoples property
