Default What happens if you do a "WIPE HANDHELD"

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering exactly what happens if I was to do the "Wipe Handheld" option?

Basically, I have duplicate appointmenst in my canendar on my BB. I am not too sure how they got there, but I think it might be because I tried MS Office 2007, sync'd My BB and then uninstalled 2007 and went back to MS Office 2003 and preformed another sync. Therefore, I want to "Wipe Handheld" and resync my BB.

Will I lose anything?
Do I have to reinstall all my Applications and Email address and everthing else I have done for the past 2 weeks, since I received my new BB?

You will lose all your data from the device. OS and applications will still be there but with no data. It takes it to an "out of the box" state.

ok, so if I do this, all I have to do is resync it with Desktop Manager and everything should go back? in Office 2003, I don't have duplicate appointments...so I believe it lies with in the phone here..
