    Hi krystle, welcome to pinstack. Go into options, security, general. Click the trackwheel and choose wipe handheld. The password is "blackberry".

    Does she have an 8100? If so, she might get confused with "click the trackwheel."

    cp, does that wipe everything? I was reading an article a few weeks back (can't seem to find it now) on how people were 'wiping' their phones and handhelds and selling them on ebay or donating to find out that some of the personal information was still attainable by a good hack...just wondering cuz when my pearl gets here, gonna sell the 7100 (on its way back from BBrepairshop.com right now).

    I didnt check the profile of the OP. I guess I need to get used to trackwheel and scroll ball, or whatever you call it, thanks sanfran. And cherr, there has been discussion lately of information that was erased being obtained, but the average person doesnt have that ability.
