    Two ways to delete an email account: 1) Login to your carrier's BIS site, and select "Email Accts". 2) Click on the "Setup Personal Email" icon on your BB's homescreen. That will take you to the mobile version of your BIS account. To completely erase all info, and restore to factory settings, you can use JL_Cmder to "wipw" the device. You'll then need to reinstall your carrier's OS.

    There are a couple ways to wipe your device. Plug your BB into Desktop Manager and select Backup/Restore, then click advanced. In there you can clear all databases and it will clear all your info.

    You could also go into your security settings and select wipe handheld.

    Neither of these options requires JL_Cmdr or reinstalling the OS. That method is a PITA last resort, especially just to return the device.

    The "Backup/Restore" method does not actually wipe anything. It's like when you delete something from your PC's hard drive. The information is still there, it just doesn't show up like normal. All you're doing is making that space writable. I'm not positive (because I haven't checked), but I'd be willing to bet that the same goes for the "Wipe Handheld" method.

    Wipe handheld removes everything in the contacts database and message folders, restore all other settings to factory defaults. Does not remove 3rd party apps. More than enough for a return/exchange or Ebay sale.
