    You can remove all the data on the device: Menu - Options - Security Options - General Settings - Menu - Wipe Handheld. This will put the device back into a "factory shipped" state. All data and 3rd party apps will be removed.

    If you want to wipe the device completely, to do a fresh installation, use crackmem or JL_Cmdr. Make sure you create a backup before wiping the device.

    You do not have to re-install DM. You can restore the contacts and other info from the backup. You will NOT lose backup data if DM is uninstalled.
    Hope this helps!
