Keep entering an incorrect password until the device wipes itself.
Then you can set a new password and restore your data from your most recent backup, if you have one.

Might get tricky, because if you do have a backup, it's likely protected by the same password which you forgot.

I'm going to guess that your data is gone at this point.

You sure you didn't "find" this BB? As often as we go in our phones per day it's hard to believe someone could forget their password. Not saying it didn't happen but this is the purpose of the security on the device. What good would it be if there was a way to circumvent it?

Your post sounds suspect. As above, are you sure this is your device, not one you found?

There's no way around the lock code. It's designed specifically so nobody can access your info without the code you set. There's no "master code" or sekrit workaround for this. Wipe and restore from your last backup - it's your only option.
