    Previous owner's email still on my pearl, can't remove

    Advertisement



    I bought my pearl on ebay, the previous owner must have set up a default e-mail addy, and now I can't delete (or haven't found a way yet) his e-mail from my phone. This is a security issue for him, because I am receiving all his aol e-mails. I want to delete this account from my phone, but when I select the account name under message options, there is no option to delete it. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Backup any data you want to keep, then wipe the handheld (Options, Security, General Settings, click and choose Wipe Handheld). This should clear out any old data. It also sounds like the previous owner setup his personal email on the BB to redirect his AOL mail to the device. I think he can disable that or point it to his new PIN from the T-Mobile Website.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.

    Ok, I have deleted the service book for that account and now it doesn't list it. So that is fine. Now how do I delete the entire folder and icon for that e-mail account, its annoying seeing that on my screen.

    Thanks

    honestly, if i just received the device and it was used and had someone's info on it, i would wipe the damn thing.

    the previous owner should've wiped it before selling it.

    The chances are pretty good if you just got Paris Hilton's Sidekick second hand...
