Cool BB 8830 Wipe Question - Please Help!

Please Login to Remove!

I recently wiped my bb to give it to a friend of mine. He later said that he found a picture(s) of mine still left on there. I don't recall having installed a media card that would have stored pictures or ring tones or the like. My fear is that other personal information may have been left on the phone as well. How likely is it that after a wipe there would still be information such as text messages or emails on the phone? What exactly gets cleared when you do a wipe? I don't want to ask for the phone back, but I don't want my personal info possible hanging around. Any help would be appreicated. I am new to this. Thanks!

* i also deleted all third party applications.

The security wipe you do from options will delete all data and settings (except any IT policy if present), and third-party apps if you choose.

Is your friend a practical joker?
