I bought this 8800 off of ebay, and the idiot left ALL his stuff on there, including his email that I can access and his instant messaging passwords and everything else. Is there any way I can delete only his stuff or do I have to resort to a complete wipe?

Options >Security Options >General Settings >Menu Key >Wipe Handheld.

That will wipe just the data from the phone but not the OS or the apps.

When I go to general settings it brings up a bunch of stuff like asking if i want a password or not?

Make sure you hit the menu key (key with blackberry logo on it) from there and select "wipe handheld."
