Default Switching to a replacement Blackberry, list of things to do on the current one?

Please Login to Remove!

I am receiving my replacement Blackberry today (same model as my current), so what do I need to do with my current one to make sure I leave nothing behind?

-Back up everything to Desktop Manager
-Is there a way to reset it to factory default?

Once everything is backed up and reset... I guess that's pretty much it then?

You can use the switch device wizard in DM to transfer everything from the old to the new, assuming the old is in working order. Then wipe it, which will remove all of the old data (contacts, calendar, notes, memos, email, etc.). Remove the 3rd party apps manually.
