Question How to disable mandated password

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought an ebay BB7780 with 4.x software with my desktop redirector to replace my broken model. But the BB password seems to be mandated because I can't disable it in security setup. But I don't want to hassle with a password each time I use it.

Can anyone tell me how to disable the mandated password that seems to be on this? So far, I tried going down to older version of 4.x handheld software and that did not change it.

I believe the answer is reload the Blackberry OS and do NOT backup the data on the handheld.

If you can't disable it under security options then I would bet you have an IT policy installed on your BB. You will have to wipe the handheld and wipe the security policy. I don't know off hand how to get rid of the IT Policy, as it's not that easy but there are threads on this forum for it. I'm sure if you do a search you will find what you need.
