Default 7520 password issues

Please Login to Remove!

I have aquired a lot of 7520 and 7510 Blackberries from a company that was closing it's doors. Many of the units are set up with passwords. I have tried to use JL_Cmder, but I have no idea of what the current passwords might be. Is there a way to wipe the device without knowing the password? Or is there a trick to JL_Cmder I do not know?

Enter it 10 times incorrectly. Follow the prompts. It will then erase the contents of the BlackBerry.

It is likely that these BlackBerrys have an IT Policy on them which you will also have to remove.

yes, i suspected that. I found one unlocked and noticed that security can not be disabled. Are there any posts about how to remove IT policies? Thanks!
