    Don't think so. Are you sure you are matching the password correctly, ie uppercase/lower case, or symbols or numbers?

    Remember to shift from letters to numbers, cause i keep my BB lock and sometimes i 4get to hold the shift key cause my password is all numbers.

    I have never had trouble with the password after setting it. HAve you recently backed up your BB? If so just let it wipe and restore and you should be ok.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~First off let's just take a deep breath and regroup.


    Now, do you have your stuff backed up?

    Nope their bang on, upon entering the password incorrectly 10 times the BB will wipe itself. It's a security feature, you back up no?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they are right. It looks like you have no other option but to wipe and do over.
