That's the ticket....it should be under Options >Security Options >General Settings. This will erase all your user data in the OS and apps but leave the OS and the apps themselves untouched.

Is there a 'factory' reset option that kills absolutely everything (including apps) ?

Cheers,

Yes, download JL_CMDER (search for it on the forums, it'll come right up) and use it to wipe the BB. Then use Desktop manager to reload the OS to the device but don't do a restore of any data. That's how to get it back to "out of the box."

Hi....
I don't know if this will help you but...
Download 4.2 DM and the latest OS for your handheld...
Install the DM and run the install for your OS. Attache your BB and the DM will update the device with the latest software....

It will setup your device again with the latest software...
