Default Tip for problems entering your password

Please Login to Remove!

When I first got my blackberry 8820 I entered my password to unlock it & it worked no problem.

However!! the next day it would not accept my password or so I thought.

After lots of stress & re-setting etc etc I finally discovered that if I pressed the delete key "del" each time before entering my password it worked no problems.

Hopefully by doing this it will save you all the stress I went through.

I apologise if this tip has been given before but I could not find it in any previous posts.

Please tell me if this helped you.

Thanks for the tip, if it works for others, great.

Please don't double post in the forums, though.

Was there a chance that you had the alt or caps key pressed? Have you tried a battery pull and then entering the PW without pressing the del key prior? I have never heard of this tip before. Anyway as JSanders said, good stuff if it works for others.

Thanks for the response, to answer your questions, No I did not have the alt or caps key pressed & yes I did pull the battery. This is the only thing that works for me!
