Default 8830 Password Requirements

Please Login to Remove!

After searching the forums I found that it rejects less secure passwords:

Quote:
From the support forums: BlackBerry devices support individual security passwords between four and fourteen characters in length. The use of the password is designed to ensure that only the BlackBerry device user can access the information stored on the BlackBerry device.

The BlackBerry device rejects less secure passwords, such as those composed of identical characters or those that consist of natural sequences (for example, 1234, etc.).
But i could never find the requiremnts of what it will accept without trial and error, (for example will it take 4213 because thet are out of sequence) if you have a name with it will it work like blackberry123?

Thank you for any help as i get this message all the time when trying to change the password:

Invalid password sequence was entered

To my knowledge, there's no published list of forbidden passwords.
If an invalid password was entered... try something different.
Nothing wrong with trial and error as far as I can see.

If you're on a BES, the BES admin can also manually set forbidden passwords.
For example, we forbid our users from using the company name as their password, or any part of the company phone number.

Thank you, as i have been searching for the password requirements all weekend with no luck, i guess I can stop my search.

Although if anyone does happen to have this mystery list of requirements let me know.
