Default Blackberry 8520

Please Login to Remove!

I've a Blackberry 8520 on contract for two year expiring this September, I've used the contract sim card on my iPhone and I want to sell the Blackberry 8520, how do I erase all data, BBM messages and contacts?

Also since the Blackberry 8520 is on contract, can the buyer check my information such as name, address and others?
