Default Purchased Used BB 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone... I have just purchased on eBay a used BB Curve.

I have a few questions.. I am on ATT.. and I want to do a clean install of the OS.

1. How do I go about deleting the entire OS so that I can do a clean install?

2. Where can I download the latest OS from ATT for my 8310?

3. I have on my comp. an older version of Desktop Software. Do I need to have the latest version? If so, where can I get it?

4. The guy had 2 email's on the phone. What do I have to do so that no more e-mails will be coming to this phone from his person's old e-mail.


Appreciate any help guys...

1. use JL_Cmder to do a full wipe: BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community

2. It's not from AT&T, but this is the latest version, and it will work just fine as long as you follow the directions: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

3. DM 4.2 SP2 or higher is fine.

You do not need to use JL_Cmder to do a full wipe and install a new OS.

Just follow this sites instruction on how to upgrade your OS and in the process it removes your OS before installing the new.

If your device does not have a newer OS available you can simply do a wipe from the menue and bring your device back to the "out of the box" state.

But if he does that, it's going to restore everything that it backed up before it upgraded the OS.

Have you tried going to that DIR and running it directly from explorer?

Also, with Vista, make sure you run it as Administrator

Unfortunately I am not an expert on JL_Cmder. I know there is a thread about JL_Cmder around here, I would start there. Sorry

I notice your email question has not been addressed. I'm new to Curve also, and don't know if the system wipe will take care of that issue also. If it doesn't, go to Blackberry Setup/Personal email Setup. Select the email account you wish to delete. You will be presented with an option to delete. Select that option, and voila, the connection will be gone!
