To change a device password from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server,

1. Open the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Management console.

2. Right-click the user account that requires a password change.

3. Click IT Admin > Set Password and Lock.

4. In the Set Handheld Password and Lock window, type the new password into the New Password and New Password Again fields.

5. Click OK.

Note: It takes approximately 30 minutes for the new IT Policy to be sent to the device.

6. When the device receives the IT Policy, the following message is displayed:

New IT Policy Changed Over The Air. Would you like to accept?

7. Click OK. The user can now use the new password on the device.

Also if the user does not want to wipe due to the files on the Blackberry you could take out the memory card and copy the files off.
