    Hi im gonna Sell my classic, is it good enough to reload firmware via link? I know security wipe takes days, thats what it was doing when i bought it and i dont want someone to think they bought a broken device.
    I use it for work mostly so it needs to be cleared.

    Any advice?

    Link reload is fine or download an autoloader with the OS you want to load, run it. It'll be wiped in seconds and fine for selling. Remember to disable BlackBerry Protect / Anti-Theft before wiping it and remove it from the BlackBerry Protect site otherwise no one will be able to use it w/o your ID.

    Security wipe shouldn't take days... hours maybe but not days. If you go that route, ensure that it's plugged in before starting the process. Caused myself more trouble than I had to by skipping this simple step when doing the same with my Z10.
