There is no "code", per se, there is a procedure. From Options, go to "Security Options", then "General Settings", then bring up the menu, where you'll see an option for "Wipe Handheld". You'll get a warning message, then you'll be told to type in "blackberry" to confirm. That'll do it.

When I do the 'wipe device' It has me type in the word "blackberry" try that maybe. Also, I have the same issue, and a wipe does not really solve it, all it does is clear emails and contacts, all your apps and settings stay the same. I would like to do a wipe too, am having all sorts of issues with PC.

If you want to completely wipe the BB you'll have to use JL_Cmder.

This will wipe everything and then you can re-install your OS.
