Sure thing....go to:

options >> security options >> general settings >> press "BlackBerry button" >> select wipe handheld >> enter blackberry to clear.

and of course, you can soft reset with good 'ol

"alt" + +

Default Soft vs Hard reset

Does pulling the battery do a "better" reset than ctrl-alt-del, a 'soft' reset?

the difference between pulling the battery and doing a complete security wipe is like rebooting your pc and reinstalling windows os. hope that makes sense.
