    What do i do if I forget the screen password for my blackberry 8700g?

    Advertisement



    I put a screen password on my blackberry 8700g. Now I can't remember what it is, every time I enter the wrong password it keeps counting and warned me that I can only enter 10 wrong passwords. What can I do if I forget my password? Please some one help me i don't want to lose my device. Now I can only make emergency calls from my blackberry phone.

    You can't really do anything. Have you recently done a backup? All that is going to happen is, it is going to wipe the device (remove all address contacts, bbm contacts, etc)

    umm i'm pretty sure there's nothing you can do i think you need to ware out the password attempts then unfortunately your BB will be wiped........ i might be wrong but there was a similar thread here yesterday...... unless you get the PW your out of luck...... sorry man

    You need to take a deep breath and let the BB wipe. Hopefully you have a backup. And take it easy on the posts, those 5 other posts you have all say the same thing within minutes of eachother. We'll try to help as best we can.

    1. Keep entering the password incorrectly and let the device wipe its data.
    2. Re-sync or restore (you were syncing your data to a PC or making backups, right?). If you're on BES just reactivate and let the wireless restore do its work.

    ...and, most important:

    3. Don't forget your new password.
