Default 8310 reset to original

Please Login to Remove!

I got the new 9000 (Bold) and now I'm giving my old 8310 to my daughter. I want to delete all my email stuff and would like to transfer my password stuff to my new phone also. Just can't figure out how to do this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

To transfer your stuff, use the Switch Device Wizard in Desktop Manager.
After you have moved everything over, your can erase all of you data from the BB by going into

Options / Advanced / Security / General Security
Click the menu key and select Wipe Handheld (I think that's what it is labeled)...

Thanks. Worked great!!

Any idea if you have to have a media plan (i.e. internet) for an 8310 to be able to send pics?

Yes, you do, on AT&T. A Service Book is sent to enable the MMS data messages.

Yep, you gotta pay play. Data is not free.

Sorta like Illinois politics.

lol Thats funny right there. lol. I've got the $30 unlimited family text plan, but that won't let her send and receive pics?? I have the extra $30 data plan on my plan so I don't have a problem. That mean I have to have an entire new $30 data plan for her phone too?? I don't want her to have internet.

It is all-inclusive, all or nothing.

Well, you could get the "kid" another phone that doesn't require a BB Data Plan.
This is where you make the choice, AT&T is not forcing you to give the BB to your child.

Yeah, I know. It was a bribe for the good grades. That's what she wanted. I'm just not ready to let go of that much $$$ for a 13 y.o.!! lol

And I'm running 4.5.0.81(108) OS. I upgraded that for myself.

Thought it was worth a shot. It worked on my son's 8100 until he got a data plan and is still working on my daughter's 8110. I agree with you, there is nothing in AT&Ts description of the unlimited text and MMS plan that excludes Blackberry devices, and I believe there is a way for your curve to work, there is just no-one at AT&T that knows how to do it. The only thing that should not work is BB Push mail and BB Messenger, as those are run through RIM servers.
