Angry Help! I somehow messed up my BB

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everone,
I got in contact with an old 950 and I let my friend see it.
However I forgot I had a password set and he tried 10 time to guess it,
On the 10th try, it said, erasing data and when it rebooted my opetions icon was gone!
Is there a way to get it back? or am i sol
Thanx
Michael

Unless you were able to backup ur data before this happened and could restore that, ur options about about zero.

The after 10 tried is a security feature where the BB will erase the sensitive data. Backing up and NOT forgetting your password is critical.

Tough luck, bro. Unless you backed it up, you're SOL.

wow. your friend must be a moron because it is VERY difficult to get to that point. The blackberry does everything to warn you. There are several warnings before it actually happens and even gives you a great big warning on your last attempt that if you get it wrong that it's toasting all the memory.

I think you need new friends. ;)
