Default no password in BB 8700?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

Just wondering how I can disable the user password in my 8700 so that when I power it up it doesn't ask for a password?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...


Thanks

Virusboy, again you are in over your head.

SunnyM,
To change this you have to go to >Options >Security Options >General Settings >Password: Disabled.

If there is no option for Disable then it means that you have an IT Policy on your device. If you are connected to your work email system then most likely they have pushed the policy to your device and you cannot get around it.

If you are not on your company's corporate BES then it's possible that you have an old IT policy on the device. Finch asked if you bought it used. Many times used BB's have IT policies on them leftover from the previous user. That will prevent you from disabling the password. If this is the case then you can remove the IT policy. It means wiping the device and loading a blank policy and reloading your data.

**Note: wiping an active IT policy pushed from your company jeapardizes your job. Even if you try, the policy will be pushed again when you reactivate with the BES.
