    After a Security Wipe the playbook forces me to go through the setup process. Is there a way to bypass this?

    The reason I ask is that I am sending my playbook in for repair. ( freezes after being in standby mode and doesn't respond to bezel swipes ). Anyway during setup if forces me to connect to the internet using my router password and also forces me to log in to blackberry with my ID and password. I really don't think it's anyone's business to know what they are.

    Am I doing something wrong or is there a way to bypass these steps?... What do people do when the sell them used?

    If I shut it off at the first stage of the setup, would it just continue the setup after turning it back on? Or would I brick it?

    I don't think there is a way around it.

    Just do the security wipe, shut it off and send it to RIM.

    Scotter75 and kbz1960 like this.

    I couldn't think of anyway around it either... so I will do as you suggest...
    I have nothing to lose since it "is" going in for a repair anyway..

    Yah, I've sent mine in for repair before. Just wipe, and turn off.
    Often times if it's hardware issue, they might even just send you a brand new one. That happened in my case.
