Reset not working
I am trying to prepare my 9800 for sale. I have pulled my sim and sd card, I preformed a reset:
options>security>security wipe>all that's availabe here is emails,contacts,etc (other 2 choices are blacked out). I type in blackberry>> The phone goes through reset but when I go back in, ok>continue>skip intro>now in set up screen>hit back arrow, offers exit/cancel, hit exit, now if I click contacts a screen says
There are contacts saved on your Sim card. Would you like to copy these to your BlackBerry Contacts? If I select yes, they will restore!! How is this possible if I have pulled the sim and did a wipe?
How do I get these out completely?

Did you put the SIM back in before restarting the phone?
It may be possible that your carrier preloaded contact info for Customer Service
or other "helpful" numbers on the card.
You could also select NO at the first question and then try deleting any SIM card data:
1. From the Contact list, press Menu.
2. Select SIM Phone Book.
3. Highlight a contact.
4. Press Menu.
5. Select Delete.
As far as I recall you have delete any contacts present one at a time.
No it was taken out prior to format

Before adding a piece of software (BlackBerry Protect) can you try this:
1) Put the SIM card in
2) Allow the coppy to happen
3) Delete SIM contacts as above
4) Remove SIM
5) Do another Security Wipe.
If that does not work here is a link for BlackBerry Protect

Glad that all worked itself out.
Having deleted all the contacts from the SIM I don't think you will have the same issues.
If you do those steps or BlackBerry Protect will get it taken for you.
