BlackBerry Bold 9700: Set Screen Lock Password

Be sure to set the other options on this screen as desired. You should probably know that the Number of Password Attempts setting is the number of times you can type the password wrong before the device resets and wipes all your data off of the phone.

    Bold, 9700. Try to enter the screen lock password to unlock the screen and usual **** do not appear. Instead, I get letters. Phone not accepting the old passcode and now on last attempt. Is there a fix to this problem? Thanks for any advice…

    hey i have the same problem as ‘mauricio’. I’ve set a password but when i lock my handset keeping ‘a’ pressed it does not revert to password protected mode until after a minute. i recently sent my bb bold 9700 for repair. but i could lock the phone with password with ‘a’ earlier. please advise.

    Yes i have the same problem as ‘varun’!
    I’ve also got a bold 9700,
    and somehow everytime i type in my password i see letters instead of ****, and if i use the alt key to change the letters into numbers (for example alt+E=2).
    it works to change it into numbers, but even if i type in the right password with those numbers, the phone keep saying it’s a wrong password..
    can somebody pleaseeeee help me out, got 2 attempts left and i really dont want to lose everything on my phone..

    Hey it works. Took me a while to figure it out. Just adjust the “security timeout” option to 1 minute. Lock the phone, and wait for a minute, and there you go!
