Sorry kurajesh, if it was that easy to break the password of a BlackBerry then they wouldn't be a very secure handheld. Don't forget, it isn't the handheld that is protected by the password, it's the data on the handheld. Once you've entered the password incorrectly 10 times you will be able to use the handheld again but all of the data will have been wiped.
Think you may be out of luck.  not sure if you take the battery out it might reset the bad password count.  But you still need the correct password.
Is This connected to a bes server? Get your it to choose option for set password and lock handheld option to change the password* once done you may use the new pwd to unlock it.

If not, doubt any other way out.its by design

It is not connected to any server. Any other option to try

there is no other option to break it. Ten times wrong input of the password and the device would be wiped out completely. hope you got backup of the phone on a computer

confirmed, by design, if you get the pwd wrong 10 times it resets the unit back to out of box defaults and erases the data.  if you had it linked to a BES server, as juniadIT said, you can reset the password there, and take a gamble that the device would accept the updated commands from the BES and allow you to unlock it.
