Question 7100 BB password lost

Please Login to Remove!

I was given a Blackberry 7100i, by my aunt. It was my uncle's he passed away 8 months ago. It currently has a password, that no one knows and has not been used since my uncle passed. I do not have the cable to connect to my pc, nor the charger. The charger for my cell phone fits; not sure if it's the correct volts? If I can get passed the password. Can I use it to play games and watch video, w/o connecting to a service? I have the CD; but how do I connect to my PC? I've never used a BB, so I'm at a total lost.

update; i guess it finished. Now there is a box with a circle and a line drawn through the circle, with the number 507 below that. Now what?

Welcome to the forums.

AFter you enter the password 10 times incorrectly, the device will wipe itself of ALL personal data, settings, and information. You cannot bypass that. It is foolproof, for just this reason.

It's called security.

After that, you can reset your own password, load what you want and have fun.

You cannot reset the password.

Make sure you are entering the incorrect password if you are TRYING to wipe it.
