Default Factory Restore?

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondering, is there any way to restore a BlackBerry handset to factory settings? Was thinking of passing my handset on after I upgrade, and it'd be nice to know that everything on it was truly gone.

Thanks in advance!

Yup, its called a security wipe.
Wipes everything bar the OS.

Make sure to clear the BIS account as well so that the next person can add it to their account.
