    Hard reset is different to clearing everything out. (Pedantic, I know).

    Hard reset - take the battery out.

    Clear everything - Options > Security > General Settings > Wipe Handheld

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ hmm, I need to reset my device and data and start over. It's good to start fresh from time to time, no?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~As a rule its good to backup regularly as a just in case. Depending on how many changes you make on the BB, at least monthly, for some people weekly :-)

    A soft reset is generally a combination of key-strokes that resets (powers off, and then back on) your phone. I hard reset is generally when you take your battery out for 20-30 seconds. And a full on wipe of all handheld info (contacts,pics,bookmarks,etc.) Is done by going into options-security-general settings-wipe handheld. If you have a lot of info, expext a handheld wipe to take as long as an hour.

    So, if I want to get the unit back to default (as if I just bought it), I'd need to do a wipe handheld? Anything else?

    Also Alt-Shift-Del twice. In other words, press this combo once, let it restart and then press this combo again after it restarts and gets to the home screen.

    Just to confirm, does the "wipe handheld" completely remove all data? I need to return my BB to TMo for a new one and just want to make sure none of my top secret, super-sensitive information is available to anyone...

    That is my understanding. If you really want to return it to a clean machine, use the JL_Cmder wipe option then reload the latest OS from your Carrier.
