It works like that so you can transfer all your old data, contacts, media, applications (including paid applications) from the old phone to the new phone and keep the same BBID.
Now you need to delete everything from the old phone, and then you can set up the old phone with a new BBID for the new person you are giving the phone to so they will start afresh.
1. Scroll to and select All.
2. Scroll to and select Options.
3. Scroll to and select Security.
4. Scroll to and select Security Wipe.
5. Select the required options.
6. Enter the word blackberry to confirm.
7. Scroll to and select Wipe Data.
8. Your BlackBerry smartphone will shut down and restart itself.
This will take several minutes.
