Default Late father's 9320: locked out

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

My father died about a year ago. I have just tried to access his 9320 to reset it to factory state and then give it to one of my children, but I can't log in to his account, and the email address he used is now defunct so I can't go through a password reset via email.

Is there any way of resetting this phone, when it's impossible to log in to the existing user account ?

Apologies if I've got some of the terminology wrong: I don't have a Blackberry myself and haven't really got my head round them.

Type in an incorrect password 10 times and follow all of the prompts.
That will delete all user data on the device.

Good luck.

You will also need to have the carrier add the type of plan including a blackberry data plan to allow full use of the phone.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button
