I have just had a new replacement handset sent to me and having problems signing into my blackberry ID. So I'm trying to reset my password and security answer on my blackberry ID via my phone and laptop. However the process through the phone states that I must go on this link: http://uk.blackberry.com/bbid.html and its says I don't need worry about 'Password recovery question' but I put in my username in first then click submit and it sends me to Password recovery question. What am I meant to do? Is there a free number I can call? I've already been locked out twice.
Solved! Go to Solution.
