BB Curve 8900 :: Way To Really Reset To Factory Settings?
Mar 5, 2010
Is there a way to really reset the BB to the factory settings?I am running 5.0x firmware, and the Options/ Security Options/ General Settings/ Menu/ Wipe Handheld function is not present anymore! (I saw it when I had 4.6.x..)So I tried this (from Mac, as on XP I can't locate the loader.exe file): http://www.blackberry.com /btsc/ search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB18998 but it actually did not really clean my BB, it kept for example all the apps I installed which are the reason why I would like to reset the BB! it also kept the 5.0.x firmware, while when I got the BB it had the 4.6.x firmware. I really would like to go back to the original status. any suggestions?
I need help with my device, I'm currently now using 8900 Curve and my cousin about to buy it but I want to put it back to factory settings. What I exactly want is to delete my "email@example.com" from my device or any registry in the software and device. Simply make it back to factory settings with no information I've put about myself.
Everyone says go to options - security options - general options - wipe handheld.
When I go to security options, all the options I have are: Advanced Security Options Encryption Firewall Information Security Wipe
I have been reading that the security wipe won't get rid of everything. When I go into security wipe, it says if I wipe "Emails, Contacts, etc." you will not be able to send or receive email on the device after you wipe it.
Does that mean on this phone ever again, or just from the email addresses I am wiping?
my nokia 6288 crashing Immediately after I turn it on is there a way to reset it to factory settings without turning on the phone? and is there a way to do a firmware upgrade without turning on the phone?
The progress bar has frozen approximately two thirds the way across. I have removed the battery and done the suggested soft resets but when it startsup the progress bar freezes in the same place.I have now tried the factory reset in the BBDesktopapplication. I get a message saying it is initializing and a small progress wheel is spinning. It has been like this for 6 hours and there has been absolutely no movement on the progress bar.
I have just updated my Xperia 8 to 2.1 (eventually, because I use a Mac ) and can now no longer get the phone to connect to my home internet which it was happily doing untl that point. (Backed everything up & successfully restored all my other info / settings)I have reset the modem to factory settings, rebooted all the various equipment which all reconnected with the code. I type in the same code into the phone & it tells me that the code is incorrect & then that WiFi is 'disconnected'. So far, I have not been able to get to any access points for other free WiFi, so dont know if this is a general fault.

I want to reset my phone to its original factory settings but the only way I can do it is on my computer, the screen of my bold 9700 is completely white and I was told to wipe the phone clean and redo the OS. How to reset the phone on the computer, as I said, I can't do it on the phone itself.
Using 9550 as a MP3 player - not connected to phone service. suddenly not working saying license is expired. Spent hours trying to fix w/rhapsody tech supp. They say I need to reset OS back to factory settings. How?
Does HTC One back up standard notes and tasks which come installed with the phone? I had to reset my phone to factory settings due to "silence" calls outgoing and incoming. Restored using HTC Sync manager from computer but notes and tasks were not restored?
I am trying to reset my blackberry to what it was when it was first out of the box. I keep finding these same steps. When I go to do this I don't have a general settings option when I get that far. So what do I do?

Just got another V10 and I notice in settings, about phone, status it shows a last factory data reset date and time. This is the same date and time that I opened and started the phone new out of the box.
I have never done a factory data reset to the phone. Does your V10 show a "Last Factory Data Reset" under these settings?
I've never seen a new phone fresh out of the box showing a last factory data reset logged.
When Motorola updated the software on my cell phone late last night, it reset my Droid X2. I woke up this morning to a cell phone that no longer had any of my contacts, calendar, email accounts, sound settings, previous text messages, call history, downloaded applications, and icons on my 5 screens that took me a month to set up to my preferences. Verizon Wireless CONFIRMED that Motorola performed a software update after midnight on 7/20/12. When I re-setup my google email account, my contacts and calendar were back, but EVERYTHING else is gone or needs to be re-installed and re-setup. I called Motorola support, but they provided no help or explanation. The support supervisor kept asking me if someone at my residence reset my phone (that would be quite a coincidence to occur on the very night that Motorola performed a software upgrade).
