    I am going to be selling my blackberry and my contract ends in a few days. I need to know if I need to delete my contacts now, while i still have service or if i can without service... Also, will doing a wipe in the settings delete bbm contacts? I want to make sure everything is off before i sell it.

    You can still use your phone after service is disconnected. You just can't connect to phone or BIS.

    You can delete them when the phone is not in service. I've sold multiple BlackBerry phone on eBay and what I do is go through and delete all my contacts, messages and pictures and then I do the wipe. Just to be extra sure all personal data has been deleted. The wipe deletes everything though, and can be done even when the phone is not activated.

    To avoid problems, log to your BIS account, remove the IMEI and PIN. After that your device is ready for a wipe.
    Oh, and don't forget to backup the SD card!

    I can't log in to BIS. My BIS just expired today.. Is there any way to do this without re-activating my tmobile flexpay service?

    If you wipe the device you will be fine!

    You can also brick it using JLCommander or whatever it's called then reinstall the OS.
