    Question "Scrubbing" a device, Has anyone heard of this?

    Advertisement



    "Scrubbing" a device, Has anyone heard of this?

    I am not talking about a hard reset or java loader wipe either, this is a scrubbing procedure, which can take up to 1hr.

    If anyone has seen or knows how to do this, please let me know,

    Thanks in advance,

    Maybe you could describe what the problem is, Global... and then we can consider what kind of scrubbing.

    This is what you do. according to BB Forums,

    Yes. Go to Options >Security Options >General Settings. Enable Content Protection.

    Then wipe the device.

    Thanks for all your help

    I've never heard this term used before, especially in relation to the Blackberry.

    aparently that scrubbin way is just another way to say: protect your device with a keyboard lock password, enter the password wrong 10 times.. and it wipes the data from the phone..

    Atleast thats how I got it.. all the rest with guys scrubbing and rubbing eachother I take no part in! ;p

    When you enable content protection on your BlackBerry, the BlackBerry will encrypt data that it determines to be sensitive, e.g. emails, browser cache, address book entries etc. This prevents someone with physical access to your handheld, from connecting it to a PC and extracting sensitive data. This will give you piece of mind, if your handheld is lost or stolen.
    When you lock your handheld, the BlackBerry will start to encrypt data, initially this may take quite some time. While the BlackBerry is encrypting data, an Open Pad Lock icon will be displayed. When the BlackBerry is finished encrypting data, the Pad Lock icon will close.
    The BlackBerry will continue to encrypt new data you enter, or receive over the air
