    ... for a 32gb Playbook!!

    I was able to get my hands on a 32GB PB today from the Telus deal so I am going to sell my 16GB (that i got for Xmas). I have a question though... Do I just need to do a security wipe in order to get all of the information off the PB? Or should I be doing a full factory reset (anf if so, how do I do that?)

    Also, if I backup my current playbook on my PC will I be able to put the apps I purchased on my new PB??

    Thanks!

    a security swipe should put it back to factory, and for ur apps once you enter ur bb id info that u used to buy the apps into ur new playbook all the apps should be waiting for u in app world to be installed to ur new playbook. enjoy

    I had my first 64gig stolen, so bought a new 64gig. Once updated, I just logged into AppWorld and it allowed me to reinstall all the apps I had purchased, it just says reinstall, tap it and you're good to go.

    Very funny. You almost had me with the headline...then the humor of the punch line came into play.

    A security wipe is sufficient to remove at least 99% of any information stored on the tablet. There will certainly not be any trace of your BlackBerry ID which is in essence what ties your tablet to BlackBerry AppWorld.

    The applications you downloaded from BlackBerry AppWorld will be listed under the Uninstalled tab within My World. Just click on the re-install option. This holds true for any of the paid applications as far as I can remember.

    Security wipe will not reset the PB to factory settings, you will need to do a factory reset:

    I kept my 16 for movies and media - I use my 64 for business
