Default Factory Reset for the Curve? HELP

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking to sell my Curve and delete everything off of it but I can not get my email or my pictures off, so I was wondering if there was a factory reset or something that can just delete everything.

if you have a BIS acct setup call your carrier and release your pin so the person who buys your device can setup or they will have to call you or have you call when they try to setup their email and get permission from you to delete your acct. it helps in the long run for all parties.

^^^ You need to explicitly do this. Cancelling your wireless account or dropping your BB data plan does not delete the BIS account. However, if you're switching to another BB then transferring the BIS account (done via the BIS site) will take care of it.
