Not it isn't. If you have forgotten your password after 10 attempts the device will revert to factory settings deleting all data.

Nope, you can't do so without the password.

Entering the wrong password 10x will wipe the device all of personal data and settings.

hmmm $895.00, and it doesn't support current BlackBerrys.

I would recommend you read the "how do a get a refund" FAQ first.

doesnt matter, our client who asked for forensic siezure will pay for it, but this also requires a password, and there is a seperate pack for password brute force, so this is also a dead end,

now i have asked our RIM contact for any forensic tool, we dont want to unlook really, all we want is to read data

OK, so you asked RIM to provide you with a tool that would essentially defeat the security that they set up for the device in the first place?
Good luck with that!

Forensics = Hacking. Albeit, for more ethical reasons... but it's still hacking.

They won't provide it to you. Security is the reason Blackberry is the device of choice for government, military, businesses, etc. Unfortunatly for you, this is a dead end.
