JRSCCivic - I believe the device is already locked and he can't unlock it due to the Arabic language...so can't go into Options.

Unless I read that wrong....

I think the only way around it is to wipe the device.

He can unlock it with * Send if it's just locked without a password. If it's passworded, then he might be hosed because even a battery pull will reboot the device into a locked state. If there's no password he can battery pull and it will come up unlocked.

Smile Characters in Arabic

Hi Guy's

Thanks for the reply.
After the tests what i did and found out the only way around this problem would be that you reload the software via application loader and it will wipe the device and third party stuff & then re load the software & then re-activation with the BES Server ( if you are using one ).
I also tired the remote password via BES Server but that doesn't still work.
That is the only way around but i will confiirm with RIM and then see what there would say about this sympton. and post the reply to RIM here

Once again thanks for all your help
