Default Securing Phone For Sale On Ebay

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have a Blackberry 9900 I wish to sell on ebay. I have been caught out before by paypal reversal after sending the item out.

I am new to Blackberry devices but trawling through the menu I see there are many areas where a password can be set.

Is it possible for me to set a/some passwords that will render the phone inoperable in some way so that I can send it to the buyer and then once I have the cash in my hand release the passwords to him/her.

I need something which can't be removed by simply wiping the device and also it needs to allow the buyer to use the phone so they can accept it, I will obviously let them know what the score is before payment is made.

Kind regards, Rick.

There is nothing that cannot be removed by the buyer wiping.
