    Hi everyone, can some please tell me how I could format the device memory on my Blackberry Pearl. This means I want to delete all my apps and contacts and start with a fresh setup. Thank you for your help!

    Options>Security>General
    Menu Key
    Wipe Device

    This should do it.

    I don't think this removes the apps as well. I sold my Pearl and did this Security wipe but my Pacman game, banking app and other's were still on there. I think you need to do the HARD reset in order to remove the apps. Or reinstall the OS.

    Yea, I want to return it to the state it was when I first got it, not just delete the contacts. If the first possibility doesn't do that, could you tell me how to do a hard reset or reinstall the OS. Thanks once again!

    Can you just remove the programs thru desktop manager or delete them thru options/advanced/applications and find what you need and delete it..

    Heavy is correct - if the wipe device does not eliminate the apps you can simply delete them in your options menu or your app loader. The wipe device action will clear accounts, contacts, calendars, and other "sensitive" information.

    If you MUST have a cleaner wipe you can use JL_Cmder and then re-install your OS....(JL is available in the DL section of the stacks)

    Post back any more issues.
