Default 8100 Address Book Question

Please Login to Remove!

Spent 3 weeks with the 8100 and have unfortunately, decided to return it and go back to my 8700c until the 8800 eventually comes out.

Like most, i have more contacts that the SIM will allow, so I synched the 8100 with my computer. I cannot figure out how to erase the address book now and dont want to return it to Cingular with all my information still on there.

Does anybody know how to either clear the address book or do a system reboot and bring it back to manufacturers settings?

Many thanks!

Options > Security Options > General Settings. Press the menu key and select Wipe Handheld. This will return the device to the factory default settings, including clearing the address book.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!
