Assign a password to a BlackBerry device

If a BlackBerry® device is misplaced, to assign a password to the BlackBerry device, you can use the setDevicePassword() method.
Before you begin:
Retrieve the following attributes:
  • deviceID integer for the ID of the BlackBerry device that you want to assign the password to
  • password string for the password that you want to assign to the BlackBerry device
  1. Invoke setDevicePassword().
    setDevicePassword request = new setDevicePasswordRequest();
    request.deviceId = deviceID;
    request.devicePassword = password;
    setDevicePasswordResponse response = coreWebService.setDevicePassword(request);
    setDevicePasswordResult result = response.returnValue;
  2. Check the result for errors and handle any errors.
    if (result.setDevicePasswordReturnStatus.code != SetDevicePasswordReturnStatusEnumType.SUCCESS) 
       // handle any errors
