Do you have a backup to restore to?

pixiestik 01-27-2008 09:29 AM

No... should it being showing the letters when i type my password or stars like it normally does?

I hate to be rude, but the obvious question is, is this your BB or did you find it someplace?

Not sure what you typed but if you used numbers be sure you do the shift or you will get wrong entrys. wiping the BB does not cause any problems for people who have backed up the unit. You do have desktop manager installed I hope.

dayum i am unlucky.. the usb connection didnt work on my computer..

Ok so now you do have a problem. You will need the software on a PC to reload after a wipe. Do you have the software?

i do have the cd, and cable its just the desktop manager didnt work for me.. this is my dads old phone to the person who asked if it was stolen, but i set the pw to rrcc and can not get it to work.

if you held the ALT key down it's numbers

tsac 01-27-2008 10:15 AM

Once it gets wiped you can do nothing except reload via the software
