I've been using a Blackberry 8320 for the past couple of years.
I am out of my own country for a year and the data plans where I am are far too expensive to justify getting one, so I'm ditching the blackberry in favour for a very basic phone and when I return to the UK, I'll pick up another one.
I am going to sell the 8320.
Can someone tell me how to wipe the BlackBerry entirely so that no personal data is on it ie back to factory settings?
I do want to be able to to retrieve the contacts etc at a later date - what is the best way to do this? Please bear in mind when I buy another phone, it may not necessarily be a Blackberry, so I especially want the contacts to be in a generic (ie not Blackberry specific) format.
I've backed up my Blackberry quite a few times and the back up is in ipd format.
