    Question Disable password

    Advertisement



    My appologies if this is a dumb question but how do I disable password protection? If I click OPTIONS - SECURITY the SPACE bar doesn't do anything. Pressing ENTER only allows me to CHANGE PASSWORD, WIPE HANDHELD or VERIFY SECURITY SOFTWARE. I also can't use the SPACE bar to change SECURITY TIMEOUT. ENTER gives me the same selections. Is there something wrong with my 7280, software or me? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Re: Disable password

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~is this a personal bb or work assigned one? If work assigned the IT dept will have something to do with the password due to protecting the contents, but if it is a personal one, did you buy it used? If so try this backup your info using dm then enter the password wrong 10 times and it will wipe all info and give you the options you want in the security options

    This is a personal bb purchased on eBay. It was pasword protected when I got it so I had to enter a wrong password 10 times and then reinstall the software via the Cingular web site. Did I reinstall the software wrong? I don't recall having any options when I reinstalled the software.
