    Default How to return my Blackberry to factory settings?

    Hi all,
    I have just had my 8320 replaced, and immediately did a restore with my old settings.

    It is now slow as ****, so I wanted to wipe it back to factory settings - then simply synchronise it with my outlook etc.

    How do I wipe/reset it?

    Since I'm on my phone I can't get you the links. However, if you goto the help section and look under lecture series you will find a post on how to wipe your phone. You can always use jl commander to wipe the phone and then use the app loader (inside the desktop manager ) to reload the os. Just google jl commander. Its a small program and its free.

    The BlackBerry key is the key directly to the left of the trackball. Follow the path I posted earlier: Options > Security Options > General Settings

    On this page, press the key just left of the trackball and select Wipe Handheld. Enter the word blackberry as the password.
