    ok so i will try to make this as simple as possible !



    when you put a password on your keypad, to unlock your phone so noone can access your stuff usualy its 10 trys an then phone erases itself ? well once i come up to 6 trys an then it just gives you option with password "blackberry" to type in an it unlocks the device

    is there a way to, change that ???

    wow...that doesn't sound right at all. Never got up to 6 myself. So it actually tells you type in 'blackberry' to unlock it? If that's the case who in their right mind type in 'blackberry' wrong four more times? or is this some underground secret?

    It tells you to type in "blackberry" to continue with the password unlock process, it shouldn't unlock the device after entering in "blackberry"

    Disable the password under Options; Security Options; General Settings

    What os are you running makija? Maybe it's a bug in that os because it is supposed just allow you to continue trying to enter the right password.

    It can't be an OS bug since I have the same OS and when I type in blackberry it continues to ask for the correct password.

    Maybe some of the modules didn't load onto your device properly, try either wiping the OS off of your BB or up/downgrade to another OS.
