    Need advice on erasing my Curve.


    My old Curve was passworded as it was on a BES. I want to turn it over to my wife and get rid of the password, etc.
    What's the best way to do that?
    Thanks for any advice.

    If it was on a BES, it probably includes an IT policy also, which isn't easy to get rid of. Are you wanting to do as your post title suggests and completely wipe the device? If so, you can read a tutorial here on how to remove the policy, or there are programs, such as CrackUtil that will do it for you. Be very careful though as many of those programs can wreak havoc on a device if used improperly. You can then wipe the device using the security wipe feature in Options > Security, but I have heard of BES settings, etc. remaining even after that. You can the reinstall the OS through DM, just uncheck, 'Restore All Data' when performing the install and it should leave you with a clean OS.
