What does a wipe clean do? I recall reading that it will erase 3rd party apps as well as personal data. Does it also erase the OS and settings set by the carrier?

Thanks

To completely wipe the unit, set security on it, and mistype your password 10 times. It completely wipes the unit to the OS level.
