Default Rim Blackberry R957 - Email Q

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I'm a total noob to blackberries. I have an antique R957 blackberry which doesen't have the enterprise activation. I have it connected to my machine with Desktop Manager 4.1.2.

This unit has an account on it already with like 3000 emails. Anyone know how I can just wipe this blackberry clean and start out fresh. I can't sync my messages to this unit for some reason, probably b/c I need to remove it first. I couldn't find any options to wipe the blackberry.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to BB Forums.


I think you can wipe it out by setting a password (Options / Security) and then entering it incorrectly 10 times. That should completely wipe out the BB. You will have to reload the handheld OS. You will need both Desktop Manager and the Handheld OS for the 957, which are both available from the RIM BlackBerry support web site.
