Unhappy Broken Keyboard / Change Password (Desktop Manager)

Please Login to Remove!

My Blackberry's keyboard is broken... and I can't even access my BB because the keys that don't work are part of my password...

What do I do?

I have a VZW BlackBerry 7750, and all the keys work except two rows:
|W|E|
|S|D|
|Z|X|

All the rest of the keys on the board work fine, but the first letter of my BB password is "Z" and I am SOL...

I have tried disconnecting the battery for 1 min and re-inserting it, I have tried slamming the keys, and nothing seem's to work....


Anyone have similar problems / any suggestions ?


***EDIT***
Just got off the phone with VZW, and luckly I am still under warrenty...
They are sending me out a new BB 7750, should get here in 3-5 biz days...

I have connected my BB to my computer via USB dongle, and I have sucessfully backed-up everything on it, using "Desktop Manager", I entered the Password on my computer and all is well...

Is there anyway to change the password on the BB via Desktop Manager ? or via another third party application ?

If I could change the PW, then I could make it something that doesn't contain one of the broken keys on the keyboard.

Pleaze Help

You may have to use "javaloader -usb wipe" at the command prompt with the BlackBerry connected over the USB cable. This will erase your BlackBerry and start clean, without a password. Remember to backup your BlackBerry first.

Also, why not upgrade to a BlackBerry 7250?

This link works:

***EDIT***
Not much difference except for Memory & BLueTooth...

Does it matter if your BB's memory is full (e-mails)?
How does it handle FULL memory?

Does the 7250 support EVDO ?

Anyone know if Verizon is going to come out with a BB that supports EVDO ?
