Default Revert to Factory Default

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone please tell me how to revert my BB Pearl back to Factory Default Setting? I'm selling it on ebay and need to do this before I sell.
Thanks in Advance!

You can go to Options > Security Settings > General Settings > Menu > Wipe Handheld. If this BlackBerry ever had an IT policy on it that will need to be removed, or a blank policy will need to be sent to it. Also, you will want to log in to your BIS account and remove any e-mail accounts you have configured for your BlackBerry. Also, check BlackBerryFAQ.com as they have some FAQs about selling on eBay.

It's restrictions sent to the device when connected to a BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server.) If you bought the device new and only used it for personal use it won't have an IT policy on it. You can check by going to Options >Security Options >General Settings and scrolling to the bottom. As long as there is no reference to an IT policy you are good to go.
