Red face Please help, what "handheld is locked" mean?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I wonder if anyone could help me with this. I have been searching and reading about it for a couple of days, but I can not find any solution to my problem. I have tried 5 attempts unsuccessfully. I got this BB 8700g off eBay. I switched it on and there is a message said "Wiseman". Whatever button I press, it says "Handheld is locked" I would be most grateful, how can I unlock my handheld? I don't mind about any network that I am with as long as I can call out but I only get same message "Handheld is locked" and ask for "Password" I don't have.

Thank you for your attention and your kind help.

Is it possible Wiseman is the password?

Also if you enter the PW 10 times incorrectly, it will reset the device and you can enter a new password.

Be sure to check the link Dawg has posted.

Thank you for your kind helps. I have tried "Wiseman" without success, before. I have read FAQ and I shall try the link, and try to use up pw 10 times. Fingers crossed.
