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?
Go to OptionsSecurity OptionsGeneral Settingsclick Menuselect Wipe Handheld
Can the blackberry desktop manager software remotely wipe out all data and reset it to factory settings? I have bb curve 8530 and I have no information on what software update exactly is the desktop manager.
I went to reset my BB and wanted to "WIPE" out everything and start from factory defaults with no applications on it. Been having some weird problems. Since I've done this, everytime I log into the BB using a "new" password all the time, I get into the BB no problem. But when I turn on the wireless, it'll take about 30 seconds and it'll rewipe the device and restart again into this vicious cycle. Don't know what to do now.
I am now re-reading the 'WIPE' option and it shows that if you select to wipe the Email and Contacts, it says you can't do this anymore. I need to resync my BB with enterprise activation to my work email and contacts.
Some programs use the default notification sound that's in then native sound setup. I have created a "silent" mp3 for this so that it won't play an audible sound. However; this setting keeps reverting back to a default sound....something like an old phone ring or something. I can't even find this sound in the default sound files on the phone. It also plays when I plug the usb in my computer.why this file keeps playing and how to make the custom mp3 stay active?
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.
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?
