Question Need to clear my contacts list without DM

Please Login to Remove!

So my 8330 was working great until one day the USB port decided it no longer wanted anything to do with being connected anymore.

Good news, Verizon allowed me to upgrade to the Tour 5 months before my new every 2 date.

Also good news, my 3yr old daughter who loves stealing and playing with my curve now gets it as a toy.

Bad news: how do I clear the phone of personal info like contacts list without having the ability to sync with Desktop Manager??? I'd hate to find out she snuck it out of the house and then dropped it in a Grocery store.
Any ideas???

Btw LOVE my new Tour!

Options -> Security Options -> General Settings, hit the menu key and choose "Wipe Handheld"

This will wipe ALL your information from the BlackBerry.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
