    If you put a password in, the carrier will not be able to help. All you can hope for is that you have a backup that you can out back on. Or being able to get all your contacts and info back from outlook.....
    Sorry but, the passowrds are setup to keep your data safe and even RIM has no way around it that I am aware of.

    I did that before too. When you enter 10 wrong passwords, it wipes out your handheld and then you can get into everything. Hopefully you have a backup, then you can restore afterwards.

    I believe it only wipes your pass words that you have in your phone if i'm not mistaken.

    That's only if you forgot your password to the password keeper. If you set your BB with a password lock and forget it, then on the 10th failed attempt it will wipe all personal data from the BB, messages, contacts, call logs, memos, calendar entries, etc.........

    Sir-

    You have proven to be and astute techno-genius. Unfortunately, lots of us failed to backup before the same situation. Notice I said "us". Guilty!!!!
