    I bought a phone from eBay and I asked the seller for password and he says that he doesnt know it because he is a reseller.

    So now i am stuck with this phone, Can anyone help me just hard reset it.
    I dont care about information thats in there. I just need to start using this and i have never used it so i can careless about saved info.

    Just enter any password until the device resets itself. It has a factory default of 10 wrong passwords and then it will reformat itself to factory specs

    I have a General Question. Lets say someone did wanted to keep their info but had forgotten the password. What can you do in such scenario?

    hi, i also have the same problem, i bnoticed on the screen that i had 10 attempts at the password, so if i just get it wrong 10 times then it resets it and i can then use the phone again?
    many thanks..Charlie..C..

    The same answer applies. Since no one has the ability to get the password, you'll end up wiping it and restoring.

    Just so that you'll have a fresh start

    From the Application Screen-

    1. select Options
    2. select Security Options
    3. select General Settings
    4. select Menu (the button to the left of the trackball)
    5. select Wipe HandHeld

    use the desktop manager to reload an OS into your phone.
