I bought this 8800 off of ebay, and the idiot left ALL his stuff on there, including his email that I can access and his instant messaging passwords and everything else. Is there any way I can delete only his stuff or do I have to resort to a complete wipe?

Options >Security Options >General Settings >Menu Key >Wipe Handheld.

That will wipe just the data from the phone but not the OS or the apps.

Make sure you hit the menu key (key with blackberry logo on it) from there and select "wipe handheld."
