Blackberry Forensics
If a Blackberry has had a hard reset, is it still able to have data (text/SMS/call logs) extracted forensically? What about ipd files?

Re: Blackberry Forensics
A hard reset doesn't erase anything.
Are you referring to a security wipe?

Re: Blackberry Forensics
Hard reset? Do you mean wiped?

.ipd files can be opened easy.

Re: Blackberry Forensics
Yes, the device was wiped and restored to factory settings. Is the device still able to have data (text/SMS/call logs) extracted forensically or is the data completely gone?

Re: Blackberry Forensics
The best we can tell you is the data is gone but if your into something legal then you need to contact RIM. If your hiding something from a spouse or employer then with enough access to the old data or old emails or text messages ( which all carriers must keep permanently) then you might have a problem.
