Set Password and Lock Handheld

Hi All,

I needed to stop a user using their blackberry and instead of "erase data and disable hand held" i chose "Set Password and Lock Handheld"

I tested it on my own device first and got the desired result, a blackberry that they cannot log into. A dialog is shown asking Unlock, make an emergency call.

The problem is now the device (mine) prompts me every time to enter the password - i guess i assumed that the password was a one time deal.

BES version and my question is how do I make the blackberry stop asking for the password now?

Hi, to remove the password it has to be done manually on the device.  On new devices this is done via Options > Password > Change Password to Disabled.  On older devices it is done via Options > Security Options > General Settings > Change Password to Disabled.
