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?
how do i reset my phone back to factory os and wipe everything off my phone as if it was bran new. i noticed when i reinstalled the .459 os i still had some of my software on my phone i want to do a clean wipe with a fresh install any help would be nice...
my daughters fone wasnt sending or recieving texts or calls, contacted o2 they said do factory hard reset, the fone worked for a while after but kept restarting itself, now it will not switch on at all and when tryin to charge it either displays a battery sign with a red cross or the bb light flashes intermitting...
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?
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?
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.
My Berry isnt stolen and I have used it problem free for a while. I started to use a password yesterday. Woke up today....and have a white screen with JVM 513 reset. I can do nothing to change it. Dont know how to download anything etc etc as I can do nothing to get out of here.
bb has been stuck on the reset screen and I have no idea what to do... It has never fall or spilled with water... however I downloaded a new application for photos and in general lately was a little bit slow. the bb has stuck on letter E and i have download the desktop manager but it doesn't seem to recognize the device either I have no data back up.
I am going to be putting my 8520 on Ebay soon, and would like to get all my details off it, and was wondering if this is just a case of factory resetting the phone, and if so, where is this option on the phone, I cannot seem to find it.
My 8520 is apparently corrupted and requires a reset. I have backed up the phone via the desktop software and would like to make doubly sure that the backup also includes my contacts....? If I were to reset the phone, and then install the backup will my contacts be re-installed?
my wifes 8530 we just did the BB App World upgrade. Now we can't see or find the icon to open and use it. After being on the phone with Verizon for a while they contacted BB and this is what I was told to do.
-Download BB desktop manager on my computer -Backup all data from the phone -Do a hard reset which will delete all data from the phone -Reinstall all data from desktop manager back to phone and then the icon should appear
