all 10 guesses shouldnt give any error and it wipes the device. at that point you lose all personal information.

it would be a security feature. that is why you keep backups of your device.

And your friend would have been warned of the wipe and had to type "blackberry" as a precaution beforehand. Why was he trying to guess the password?

This is a security featue in case it is stolen, it is wiped to keep confidential information from the thief.

The good news is... if you have only had the BB for a week, you surely still have the important phone data elsewhere that was on the BB? Yes?
