How To Fix Blackberry Error ID 40730

I’ve been using my BlackBerry device for over 10 months now without any crazy system error until yesterday afternoon, when I decided to upgrade BlackBerry Appworld to version 3.1.0.56.

After the upgrade and a necessary reboot, I got an alert that my BlackBerry ID needed to be updated. I did that as well and a second reboot occurred after which I deleted a few BlackBerry applications to create some space on my device.

I then tried downloading WordPress For BlackBerry and got what became an annoying error message that took me 1 hour to fix

"Your BlackBerry ID account has been locked for security reasons. Please try again later. (Error ID: 40730)"

Thinking the apps I had just uninstalled without rebooting the device, were the cause of the problem, I did a third reboot but still faced the same error message. As luck would have it, a friend came to my rescue via the BlackBerry Group he had created. (Luck was TOTALLY on my side)

Here’s what he advised I do which I did and then regained access to to my BlackBerry account.

NOTE: I’m using a BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 with BlackBerry OS 6.0.


OPTION 1

Go to Messages, hit the Menu button and select Options >> Email Account Management.

Wait for your email accounts to load then edit them all by simply re-typing the passwords again under Login Information. Save your changes and then leave to the home screen.

Try accessing your BlackBerry Appworld again and it should work now

OPTION 2

In some cases, the fix above didn’t work and they only regained access to their accounts after they carried out a BlackBerry ID Password Reset.

With the password reset, they logged into BlackBerry Appworld on PC first of all and then tried it on their phones and it worked!


OPTION 3

Another group member had it rough ’cause the above methods didn’t work and he came close to upgrading from BlackBerry OS 5 to OS 6 out of desperation to fix the nagging error.

Here’s how he fixed the error on his own device which was a Curve 3G running BlackBerry OS 5:

NOTE: This is the message he sent me and since I don’t have OS 5.0, I couldn’t really describe the steps in detail. It has undergone a teeny weeny bit of editing.

Blackberry Security wipe to restore factory settings then then re-register to the network from the Options >> Advanced settings >> Host Routing Table after that I went to Service Books then I hold alt key and press the S, B, E, B keys then reboot  BlackBerry device.


OPTION 4

Some folks recommended waiting a few hours and the Error ID 40730 would go away on its own. Apparently this worked for them when they faced the same issue.

I hope one of these steps works for you. :)
