Default clearing data completely

Please Login to Remove!

How can I clear the data completely without going through the "delete Prior" route on the 7250/7290

Is there like a RESET or WIPE data keys that I can press to clear all the data ?

Set a password; enter it incorrectly 10 times (follow the prompts). That will erase all customer data. Sounds like you have v3.8 on the 7290 (or something less than 4.0) where the Wipe Handheld was added.

That should work.
