No, there is not any way to reset the password attempts once a password is "forgotten".

That's not correct. What you may have read is that if you are trying to unlock the SIM to use the phone on another carrier there are ways (none readily available) to assist you if you have exhausted the attempts to unlock the SIM.

If you are trying to unlock a locked BB and have "forgotten" the password, then you are out of luck.

With a little luck you can do a backup using DM...maybe before it wipes out for attempts.
the password recovery you may have read is for Blackberry ID. Rim will send it to the registered user. It is not the device password.

Won't it ask for the password when it is connected to Desktop Manager?

I agree but for some reason once in a while mine does not. Anyway it's worth a try.
