Default 10th Attempt

I know it has probably been asked a hundred times before and I promise I am doing searches of the posts but if anyone can do a quick sum up for me I will be in your debt.

I have a friend who has entered his password 10 times. Yes he went through all the blackberry steps as well not reading the messages. Of course it wiped. It was a problem with the letter q and of course he never read what was coming up when the text was displayed. I told him that 3 strikes he's out of luck.

As a good friend I told him I would have a look and see what I can do.

It is an 8700
Running on the Rogers provider
No BES
Never been backed up

Is there any hope in getting his data back?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Nope. Nada.

Sorry, man. Tell your friend it is a hard lesson learned.

Concurred. He's out of luck. The wipe process also re-writes garbage data over the deleted stuff to ensure it's gone for good.
