Default Wipe OS with password

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if there was a way to wipe a phone clean with it having a password....My friend gave me this phone and I failed the PW thinking it would reset itself which it doesnt....then i tried running app loader with the battery out plugging the phone in and wiping it clean that way and it asked for the PW.....anyone know the best way to do this with a password

Why not ask your friend for the password?

Ahhhh the simplest answer is usually the right one....but in this case i am pretty sure this wasnt a phone that he knew the PW to if you get what i am saying

My friendliest suggestion would be for you to try and get a new Blackberry thru one of the normal retail channels... short of that, should you be able to get yourself a hot one pedro, I dare suggest you come on a public forum and ask for help getting into it.
Somewhere out there is an insurance carrier that just paid for a phone that you and your friend now have

You have been around for a while. Im good with it. Just type in the wrong password 10 times and you will have a squeaky clean phone!

Good Luck!

Hey amar, sorry for the blast too... you just needed to clarify when you stated that your buddy wouldn't have the password with a smiley. I'm just fairly sure most of us on here work pretty hard for what we have and the thought of someone stealing my blackberry kind of gets me right here, if you know what I'm saying.
GL with the phone... I've got my gf's old Pearl thru tmo that I can't get to fire back up either so I'm with ya there...
