You can try entering a password incorrectly until the unit wipes itself, then reload the SW. The data will be gone, but I think (if I recall correctly) it will ask you for a new password.

Vodophone must provide software for the device somewhere on their web site. I don't know where -- its not my carrier.

its shows you each letter breifly...you just have to be careful...

it's also hard to remember the password if you found/stole it!

if it's really your BB then just enter the password in wrong 3 more times and let it wipe the memory...then just reinstall the software and restore your last backup file...
