Security Wipe
Okay, so I recently bought a Blackberry Bold 9700 from a friend. But my friend left all of her stuff like contacts on the phone. So I want to wipe everything. However, it says that i wouldn't be able to use the email anymore after wiping. im just wondering will i really be able to use it or not?

This it what it says:

All application data will be lost! you will not be able to send or receive email on this device after you wipe it.

so should i wipe it?

Re: Security Wipe
After you wipe it, it will be almost like new, out of the box. There may be user-unstalled apps remaining on the device. If you have the option to remove user-installed apps, you can select it.

You will need a BlackBerry data plan on your line to use the BlackBerry email service and other BlackBerry services. You may or may not be able to browse using the wifi/hotspot browser without a data plan.

With a BlackBerry data plan, you will be able to use the email setup app to add your email accounts and create a hosted email account with your carrier.

Re: Security Wipe
You will need the data plan specific for BlackBerry in order to use the BlackBerry apps and services. There are some things you can do with a regular mobile data plan, but none of the branded BlackBerry stuff.
