Please Login to Remove!

how do you master reset everything on the 8700c.

If someone already register with BIS and cingular and sells it (on ebay)
... can you do a reset and does it still work with a new account?


Thanks.

You have to have the previous owner release the account. Once this is done you can then register the 88

There are two issues here.

- To wipe the handheld of settings and data, go to Options > Security > Wipe Handheld.

- Cingular can delete the user association with the handheld, but it's not easy. You should have the original owner call Cingular and remove the PIN association.

I had this same problem and before I wiped my unit and reimported and reinstalled anything I checked my third party apps. I recently installed Countdown Timer, a free app by someone right here on these boards. It's just a simple countdown timer like the name suggests, but if you change the time in the counter from the default 100 seconds (like I imagine everyone does) it uses Multi-tap input by default. Seems it changes the settings for all apps and disables SureType, giving the error message described in this thread. To solve it I opened Countdown Timer and used the scroll wheel to change the setting, selecting "Enable SureType". My 7105t is back to normal and SureType is working perfectly.
