BBs are much more secure than other consumer type devices. That is why businesses and Governments use them over any other device. The password protection you experience now is part of that security.

We see it all the time, more times than you would think. Someone finds a BB. It is password protected. They know nothing about BBs and make up some story about how they set a password or their little brother set a password or whatever and now they can't remember it.

They make their first couple of posts, asking how to get around it, just as you have done.

We do not help people in illegal activities. Offensive or not, that is how it is. Going by your post, and previous experience, that is the conclusion we get.

If you get offended by our trying to protect the rightful owner, then maybe you need to grow up a bit. How would you feel if you lost your device, someone else found it and we helped them get it running again rather than trying to return it.

If you don't believe us, use the SEARCH feature and see for yourself.

And by the way, I did answer your question in the beginning just in case you were legit. Maybe thanks and/or an apology is in order?
