Default 8100 pearl security lock

Please Login to Remove!

I'm sure someone else has had this problem but I couldn't find the thread and I don't know if there is a solution for this. Basically everytime my pearl locks it asks for the password and it locks every 2 minutes it isn't used which can be extremely annoying. When I go to 'Options' then 'Security Options', 'General Settings' the 'Password: Enabled' and 'Security Timeout: 2mins' both have a red padlock next ot them so I can't change them. Is there a way to undo this? I tried wiping the handheld but it made no difference whatsoever.

Welcome to BB Forums.
Your BlackBerry has an "IT Policy" on it that is requiring the password. If this is connected to a corporate network, then they may be forcing the password.

If it is a personal BB and not connected, check out Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ and look for an article entitled "Remove IT Policy".

Good luck.

It took me a while to do the steps but it works now! I had to save the 'policy.bin' file into a different folder and manually put it into the Blackberry file because it was saying I needed the admins permission even though I am the admin :S Oh well, the rest was really clear so thank you very much! I also downloaded the colour trackball application (very nice!!)

Thank you very much for being so helpful.
