Exclamation Forgot my Password. Need to know what will happen after last attempt.

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BlackBerry Curve and I forgot my password. I'm on my LAST attempt. I'm fine with losing all my data since I've backed them up. I just want to know if:

1. Will I still be able to use my phone after it wipes all data?

2. I've read somewhere that you will be asked for a new password after the wipe out, so... Will I be able to reset my password even without a wifi connection? If not, will I be able to use my phone even without a new password?

It will essentially reset it back to factory defaults. You can restore it and enter a new password. You won't need a WiFi connection to do so.

Most people are not happy after a wipe because they do not have a backup. You are way ahead of most having made one.
