For "B" you need to push the key twice and same for "D"

Look in options, status and see if it says esn or IMEI.

No. If it is a four character password, that won't change to six characters.

But if you had a numeral in your password or an uppercase character it could an alpha character instead.

Nevertheless, if you are three tries left, you should be at the point the password is showing as you type it, and no longer masked.

That is a warning to BES users. Are you BES?

If not, forget it.

Maybe... I updated the OS on my 8310, and I am a BES user. I knew I would have to reactivate, so waited until I could get a helpful IT contact, told him I had "issues" I was correcting and needed reactivation. Asked for a reset while I loaded the new OS, reactivated and I'm in business.

If IT can't or won't help you with reactivation, then forget it.

For future reference, the number to activate a Telus phone is *22803... I had to do it like 6 times during their 36 hour activation :@
