Settings / Options / Security
General Security

Click the wheel and select "Wipe Handheld"; that will wipe out all customer data without deleting the applications and OS.

Welcome the BB Forums, by the way!

Default Wipe 7130 Address book?

Am I hallucinating? I cannot for the life of me find the menu option on how to wipe the heldheld though I am positive I saw it somewhere. Settings>Options>Security Options only shows
General Settings
App Permissions
Cert Servers
Certs
Firewall
Key Stores
TLS
WLTS

none of which lead to a 'wipe'.

(I am one of the unfortunates who can't seem to get PocketMac to work with my Powerbook without it doing all kinds of strange things to my BB address book. I thought by wiping the address book, if that is possible, I can at least start from scratch. PocketMac seems to like doing it's shtick once and once only).

Depends on how deep of a wipe you want to do. If you just want to erase your personal data, then doing a "Wipe Handheld" as described above would suffice.

But if you want to obliterate every bit of data on the phone and start from scratch, then you should use javaloader to do a wipe of the entier filesystem and os, and then get the latest version of the BB OS from the RIM web site and install it with the Application Loader in the BB Desktop software. The process will take about 1 minute for the wipe and 35-40 minutes for the OS to install and reboot.
