Don't forget to clear the BIS account so the buyer can register it for themselves.

That's the system that runs your network and holds your PIN. The PIN is a specific ID that identifies your device. You will need to remove this acct or no one else will be able to use the phone. Based on your question, rather than I explain just contact your carrier on this.

is it possible to wipe a bold 9000 from the desktop manager, not from the phone itself?

From desktop manager, you can choose the add/remove apps and eliminate backup option. So the answer is yes.
