We see this a lot on the board, someone finds a BB, it is password protected, and they come on here with their first post asking how to defeat the security. In just in case, you happened to actually find the device, maybe try to return it to the rightful owner ?
First of all I appreciate you took the time to respond.
I am slightly offended but at the same time do fully appreciate your concerns. All I can say is I can 100% guarantee that I am genuine. If there is any way you can think of to test my validity then please feel free, I will comply.
The reason this is my first post is that I called my supplier who are Vodafone UK and they told me of this website.
I have never had need to use the site previously, or even look for it , as I have been using a Nokia 5800, which incidentally is not a patch on the BB.
I bought the BB as a gift for my nephew, he decided to throw my goodwill in my face, so I opted to use the BB instead.
I'm not certain if the BB "all of a sudden it became password protected
", my nephew may have added a password but I have not seen him since June 2010 and have no contact with him.
The password prompt was there after I took the phone out of my trouser pocket, I have no idea how it came up.
All that said, I think you are suggesting that the phone needs to be wiped and reset. Am I correct?
If so, please can you tell me where there is a thread suggesting how I can do this, I would be very grateful.
Should I do that, can I be sure that the codes, eg the keycode lock, for example, will be wiped too. If so, I can reset those.
Thank you very much again in anticipation.
