Default Does this really clear out the memory?

Hey guys, I read somewhere that if your fone is on lock and the number of password attempts have been reached, that the pearl automatically clears all memory and info on the phone. Is this true, or did I just read some bologne?

It does not clear or delete out ALL memory, it deletes all personal data from the BlackBerry. All the operating system, software, etc., remains intact. Your personal settings are removed.
