i was recently given an old blackberry. i would like to delete the previous owners calender entirely. how do i do this? thanks
Clear the calendar database via the Blackberry Desktop Manager or security wipe the device (this will wipe out all data)
If it were me and it came from someone else, I'd definitely do a security wipe on it to make sure that none of there information at all is in there.
Go to Options > Security Options > General Settings, then click, and choose "Wipe Handheld."
you should enable content protection first before doing the wipe, so that it will scrub all the data once its wiped, so that no "residual" data remains on the flash memory

(Basically, it'll be like new.)
Keep in mind the scrub can take HOURS, vs the "regular" wipe taking 2-3 minutes.
