Default Master reset

Please Login to Remove!

Hi . . .

I have read the user guide from cover to cover, but cannot find anywhere that describes how to do a "Master" or "Hard" reset.

Can someone give me a clue? I am using a 7280.

Be more specific what are you wanting to accomplish, why, what model BB do you have? More information is needed to get you an answer.

I have a Blackberry 7280 from Rogers (Canada)

I want to be able to restore the Address Book to zero contacts without having to go in and delete more than 600 one by one.

Then I would be able to set up the 7280 "as if new".

oh come on. Be nice. Technically they are a new member and they did post in the new member forum.

But I do believe the new member forum is for introductions only. Any questions should be posted in the general blackberry discussion area

Use the Backup/Restore icon in Desktop Manager (advanced button) to select the Address Book and clear it. Should do the trick.

Depends on what you are trying to accomplish

complete wipe : go into Options icons (wrench), security, open the menu and you will see "Wipe Handheld"
-> this removes all users information and some service books

"Master Radio Reset" for network : go into Options icons (wrench), Security, open the menu and you will see "Master Radio Reset"
-> this resets the carrier network connection, used for solving connectivity issues with the carrier

Fkewl - good information, but not 100% complete.

Wipe Handheld is only on the latest version of the OS. I believe v3.8 and lower do NOT have that.

Master Radio Reset is for Nextel/iDen handsets only.
