Had an issue with my computer...and I reinstalled my BB desktop software. While attempting to make a back up of my 8703e which it wouldn't allow me to do I found that I couldn't type numbers on the device...so I couldn't unlock the phone.
I'm now sitting here with all my settings and all my data gone...poof...aaahhhhgggggggggggg!!!
I guess I don't quite understand what you did. Were you trying to type the password on the device while connected to Desktop Manager? Usually DM just pops up with a password box and you type the same same password as you normally would right into the computer.
It's a security feature of the BB. What if someone picks up your BB and attempts to gain access to it? Isn't that the whole reason for the password? To protect your data? The BB did it's job and did it well. Also, I would guess that if you enter the wrong pin a few times at your ATM that you would be locked out of your account.

It's the same idea with the sim card...Get your PIN2 wrong 3x, and you have to go get a new sim card =)
(I did that the first night I had an old "the new cingular" samsung the day they changed over from att the first time)
It does suck to lose all your data, I don't deny that. But I'd rather my data lost than all my passwords and emails in the hands of someone who stole my phone
