HELP!

My sister just got me the blackberry pearl 8100 for my birthday and when i turn on the phone it asks me for a password...i dont know the password. I can see I have 10 tries..I don't want to freeze the phone, can someone help? Is there a master reset, that will wipe all the data?

Thanks!

You may have to download JL_CMDR and do a wipe of the phone. And then reload the OS. You can download it from the link in my signature. You must also download and install Desktop Manager.

Just enter the password incorrectly 10 times. It will wipe out all customer data - but not the programs. You should be good to go.
