Category: Original, Skill, Author: Lily.Lu, Popularity: 4% [?]

BlackBerry is a high secured mobile system, all your personal information, mails, contacts, browser history, will be erased when someone (includes yourself) tried certain times to unlock it (if password set) with a wrong password. If you wanna erase everything when you sell your BlackBerry to someone, follow these steps:

  • Go to: Options - Security Options - General Settings.
  • Select "Wipe Handheld" from menu.
  • You will get a warning, confirm it. Your BlackBerry will be totally clean several minutes later.

There's some other tips to keep your phone secured in daily use:

  • Set a password there, and a security timeout.
  • Protect files on memory card from: Options - Media Card - Encryption Mode. The memory card will be unreadable even if plugged to other devices.

    Will the BlackBerry really erase your information or is it bluffing? I'm scared that if I type the wrong password it will erase everything...

    yes it will... but by default, there's 10 times to try.

    if you kept your blackberry backed up in daily use, you can restore all your data and settings in five minutes. so do auto backup often :)

    Hi there, I'm new to blogging and websites in general and was curious about how you got the "www" included in your web address name? I see your web address, "http://blog.immmooo.com/how-to-erase-all-personal-information-from-your-blackberry.html" has the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know just how I can change this? I'm using Wordpress. With thanks
