Question delete all contacts without desktop appl.

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to delete all of the contacts without syncing to the desktop software. I don't have the usb cable yet to do so.
I bought this used, so there are several hundred contacts listed. I haven't entered any of my contacts because I can't see myself finding them when I delete the ones that are not mine.. I need to order a cable, 7750, but for now, is there any other way?

Thanks!

Well, if you bought the used one from some other user then you should delete everything including other user's doc, tasks, calender enteries. If you want to wipe out everything and bring the BB back to default state then go to Options-->Security-->Wipe Handheld.
If the BB is password protected then try wrong password 10 times and it will do the same thing

Ok I tried to go to the security section, but there is no wipe handheld. The system is 3.7, so, I don't know if that is a feature in 4.0.
If I try the password protect, by activating the password, I don't know if there is a password in there already that would lock me out, or after the 10th try, it wipes all data clean and I can get into the phone without being locked out?
I'm nervous about doing the password protect because I don't know if I will need to go some store location to have it unlocked.

Thanks for the info.
