    I sold my BB 8520 to a friend. I cant get rid of my BB ID, So they cant create their own BB ID. And also ive been told the BBM does not work.

    I got the phone with a contract. With included 250mb internet and BB email included, It was with vodafone. My friend is using a vodaphone sim card, Pay & go.

    Do i need to do a security wipe? Will this enable my friend to create a new BB Id so they can download apps and use BBM?

    Many thanks.

    That is correct, make sure to select delete emails, contacts and third-party apps. Once completed, your device will be reset to the default factory settings. You (or your friend) will then be able to input their information onto the device.

    Thank you and have a great day!

    your friend will most likely need to add a bolt on tariff to use blackberry services (inc bbm) too, i used a pay and go sim in my 8520 and i got a message from o2 within minutes stating thats i need a bolt on tariff or a contract to run blackberry only features
