    I just received me Blackberyy 7100t that i bought from Tiger Direct, but it still has messages and the address book of whoever had it last. How can I completely wipe everything from this phone for a fresh start?

    May I add that it did not come with any software and I use a Mac (Intel)

    How did it work? The link advises that any 71XX does not have a hard reset capability.

    I too am trying to reset a 7100g

    help!

    this is from the link...."Note: The BB-7100 and BB-7290 and BB-7520 do not have reset buttons, on these you need to remove the battery (gently) wait a few seconds and then re-insert the battery. Be careful as you do not want to damage the contacts (or get them dirty for that matter)."

    and you fall under the 7100 series

    Good luck
    Michael

    Hi all,

    Newbie here. I bought a 7100T from ebay and this is how I wiped it:

    Option 1
    1. Go to Options
    2. Select Security Options
    3. Select Content Protection
    4. Hit menu key and select Wipe Handheld

    Option 2
    1. Set a password under Options >> Security >> Password and save it
    2. Enter that password incorrectly 10 times....
    3. After you enter it wrong 10 times it will wipe out all the data.




    After I wiped it I proceeded to load the latest handheld O/S I downloaded from T-Mobile.



    BTW this site is awesome. Great job.

    Ok, little update for wiping the 7100t, I just did it to make sure:

    Option 1

    1. Go to Options
    2. Select Security Options
    3. Select General Settings (make sure password is disabled)
    4. Hit menu key and select Wipe Handheld

    I didn't use option 2. So, I am unsure if it works.

    You may not be giving it enough time. BlackBerry's, and especially the 71xx series, take a l-o-n-g time to cold boot -- sometimes three or four minutes. Put your battery in, the red LED will turn on momentarily, then the white screen with the hourglass will appear. Go to McDonalds, get one of them Quarter Pounders, when you get home it should be started. (Hopefully --)
