Default 8700c Erase All

Please Login to Remove!

Cingular is going to replace my new 8700c with a new unit. Can someone tell me how to erase all of the information on my old one before I turn it in?

On previous models you can set a password and enter it wrong 10 times. I dont have an 8700 but its worth a shot.

The short answer would be to rtfm....

But as a hint....under security, hit the scroll wheel...there is an option to wipe the handheld. Then you'll have to delete any apps you installed....unless you don't care if someone knows you downloaded solitare.

Go to options under security, hit the scroll wheel...there is an option to wipe the handheld. Type in blackberry and the device and all the data is wiped.

If you want to erase all data including the O/S, run this while the Blackberry is connected via the USB cable to your PC:

javaloader -usb wipe

You need to have Javaloader on your PC and run the above command from command line. This will wipe out the O/S and return a Device Error 507 (which is what you get when the O/S is missing on the BB). Example:

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 4.1.0\bin

C:\javaloader -usb wipe

Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/2.0 (compatible; MSIE 3.02; Windows CE; PPC; 240x320) BlackBerry8700/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/102 UP.Link/6.3.0.0.0)

Your going to want to get into the security option for you phone. If you press the track wheel, a menu option appears, if you select wipe handheld, EVERYTHING gets wiped
