    My Auntie typed in her password 10 times and wiped her phone, but she wasnt to bothered as she has blackberry protect. She wants to know if she passes her phone on and wipes her phone will the person that has the phone after her be able to access her personal photos/ videos of her children/ family and friends?

    If she has a media card and forgets to take it out, yes. Otherwise, there's no getting them back no matter what you do. So she's safe.

    she will take her memory card of the phone before she hands the phone over. What about the stuff saved on the phone?

    Didn't you already say that the device has been wiped?

    They are effectively forever gone, and no known software will ever be able to bring them back.

    If she typed in her password incorrectly ten times, the phone has already been automatically wiped so she needn't bother doing it.


    Cheers.

    It takes a while to wipe a BlackBerry, the reason is that is is doing a security wipe and is writing over everything... not sure how many times.

    Could the NSA recover the data... probably. Could Bill Bob at the local phone repair store or your average consumer... not a chance.

    But as mentioned that only applies to the internal memory and not the SD card - unless it was encrypted, then the encryption for it is lost also.
