    Default Removing ALL contacts on Curve 9300

    OK, I've exhausted my time and patience on this. Does anyone know how to remove ALL contacts from the 9300 just using the device not the Desktop Manager because I have a Mac and the DM on the Mac doesn't provide it.
    I'd appreciate any help on this.

    P.S. I generally use the wireless syncing method.

    Thanks.

    so you want to remove all traces of personal info?
    or just contacts?
    You can do a security wipe by going to Options - Security - Security Wipe.

    Thanks for response, Fubaz.
    Will the security wipe remove everything else...apps, etc.?

    I thought one way would be to remove all contacts from the sync source and that would blank out the BB contacts but it only syncs...not replaces.

    exactly about the sync.

    and yes the security wipe will bring it back to out of the box condition.

    other than that, if you are looking to just delete contacts you will have to do it one by one.

    If you backup everything in your phone but the contacts, do a security wipe, then restore everything back, that should get rid of all the contacts. I'm not sure how the DM manager on the Mac works, though, so I'm not sure if you can back up your BB without the contacts.

    You can go into your Contacts, Options and just type rset. It is not on the menu but will ask you to confirm before wiping your contacts.

    Thumbs up Delete only contact list

    Its quite simple actually, just go into contacts, press blackberry key and go into options, type rset on the selected email addy and it will wipe ONLY the contact list entirely.
    If you have more than 1 email addy configured then it will ask you if you want to wipe the other lists too. (you can select yes / no).
    NO NEED TO security wipe the entire device.
