Default Resetting back to factory settings?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone on here know how to totally reset my blackberry back to its factory settings? I want a complete fresh system...but I can't seem to find any instructions on how to do it.

Any ideas please?

you can use JL_Cmder and the "reset to factory" option, or simply go to options>security>general>menu>wipe

i am interested in doing the same thing....if i do the options>security>general>menu>wipe...it will delete my contacts right? But if they are backed up i will be fine? Do i back them up on desktop manager?
And the last question...once i do that, it won't mess up my plan or anything right? When I turn it on again, it will still have MY plan (unlimited data, etc.) attatched to it? correct?

That is exactly right. Use DM to create a backup, wipe, and it will not affect your plan whatsoever

Backup your device with the DM, then wipe. The phone based wipe leaves the apps, and removes all of the associated data. Once complete restore your data via DM.

This wipe will have no impact on your voice/data services.

Are these the directions you're following? What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

What software are you trying to download?
