Please Login to Remove!

Well it's been fun being apart of the BB community..I didn't want it to end but the T-Mobile bill came for my phone (Pearl) and I couldn't sell my W810 so I had to sell the Pearl on ebay...'tear' Didn't want to do it but I had to..money is tight....

How do you reset this little guy to the factory settings so I can mail it out?

Damn that sucks... for the rest its Options \ Security \ General Settngs \ "menu button" and Wipe Handheld. Yea also pop your sim out, either before or after.

That should do it.

Go to Options, Security Options, General Settings
Click the scroll wheel and select Wipe Handheld

Try calling t-moble for an unlock code. You may have better luck selling it unlocked.

I say try again. I just went to Ebay and see what everyone is bidding on for W810 and it seems everyone is bidding on it for at least $200 and up.

Usually, if someone set the start price to high, people tend to avoid bidding on it so maybe you can start your bid at $100 and (if you have enough feedbacks) set the reserve price for $200.

Also it helps if you have everything like the house charger, earphones, etc.

If you only selling the phone, people will think it was stolen or found and they will not bid on it.

It also helps if the phone is in excellent condition. (That's why I have Shield Zone and skin case for my phone.)

If you still want to sell your 8100 than I hope things will get better for you and I hope to see you back here again soon.
