    When you go into Security Options and see the "Wipe Handhelp" option.. What exactly will that do??

    Long story short, I was with TMO and had the 8320 and then I switched to AT&T. A lady at my mom's work wants my Curve and was wondering what all I have to do before I give it over. Will the wipe handhelp option take care of all that for me?

    I searched and couldn't really find exactly what it would do.

    Thanks everyone!

    It will reset your device to an "out of the box" state.
    All of your applications, settings, databases, etc will be gone.

    If you are giving up the phone this is what you want to do.
    Also make sure you log onto the T-Mobile site and release
    the device PIN and IMEI from your account.

    But even after the wipe will she be able to use it right away after putting in her SIM? I mean she doesn't have to go to TMO and set anything up does she?

    And how exactly would I do the PIN and IMEI release?

    I'm not sure if she will be able to use all the features immediately,
    the phone at least should work.

    To release the PIN and IMEI your best bet is to probably all your
    carrier and have them take care of it for you.

    Also, the lady has to be on TMo or she will have to get the phone unlocked, as long as the carrier is GSM. If she's on a cdma carrier then forget ab out it.

    Yea. She's on TMO. That's no problem. Earlier we just put her SIM in it and it worked fine but it still had some off my stuff on it so that's why I asked about the Wipe.

    Just wipe that sucker clean with what you found CL. And as AG said, go to your TMO BIS online account and release that PIN so she can activate her own BIS. you'll both avoid headaches of calling CS.

    That, and you wouldn't want your emails to continue going to your old BB.

    There is one more issue you need to attend to.

    BlackBerry are locked to their original carrier. It will not recognize the
    T-Mobile SIM card until it is unlocked.

    You can get a free unlock code from your AT&T Customer service if your account is up to date.
