Default Completely Resetting Pearl....

Please Login to Remove!

Thanks for all the help with getting my media card to work in my new Curve. I now have a question about how to completely reset my Pearl. I'm going to give my Pearl to my wife, but she doesn't want all my information on it (contacts, calenders, etc.).

How do I completely reset it to the out of the box condition?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Go to options, to security, to general settings then press the menu key next to the track ball and press "wipe handle"

Wiping via that method is perfect for personal information, but it will leave some third party applications on the device, such as if you had loaded BeamBerry or JiveTalk.
