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!

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