BB Curve :: Factory Reset - Deleting All Contacts At Once
Feb 21, 2012
Is it possible to do like a factory reset on my curve. Since I gave my girlfriend my former phone my contact list is still in there and its freaking me out. I tried to delete but I could only achieve deleting one contact at a time and I have close to 800 contacts.
Was on my way to work today, listeting to music with the phone (fully charged) in my pocket.The music stops playing and when I look at the phone, it's just rebooting. When the phone starts again, I see the factory reset home screen. It is all wiped, no contacts, photos etc etc.Could this be some sort of bug in the phone? Or could someone have wiped it remotely without my permission?
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 have got a blackberry of my nephew and I can't change blackberry ID to mine as he has forgotten his ID and password so it won't let me change it so is there anyway I can reset phone ta please this is for a blackberry curve 8520.
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?

I was playin with my girl's phone tryin to guess her password and after too many attempts the phone seems to have factory reset. The pictures are still loaded so I believe the SD card wasn't reformatted. How do I reset it?
my contact is full. I have about 32200 contacts. Ideally I am supposed to have about 500 contacts but most of these have dublicated a hundred times. Is there a way of deleting multiple contacts at once and stop them from multplying?
Is it similar to another andriod device.Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W.The Dream device.Got a Eve that has an email lock
I'm an early adopter of Android (coming from iOS) and this is my first android phone. I've been reading and some posts suggest that I should do a factory reset after the update.
I wanna hear your thoughts about this, is it necessary? Knowing that android doesn't have a good backup system unlike iOS, it's time consuming to move everything back where it was. Do the benefits outweigh the cons? My G3 has never been rooted btw got no intentions to do so.
