    Hey guys, I'm a little new here and got some questions. I just bought a Blackberry Curve 8310 from a friend. I put my old AT&T sim card in it and it works fine (fancy phone, I like it) but I want to reset it so it's as if I just bought it brand new, but want to make sure it'll still work after. I don't feel like bricking this new phone. Also, I would kind of like to keep the 3rd party games he had on them. Anyone know how to do this. If I use the wipe utility, will I need to do some special set up thing, or will I be able to call people right as soon as its done. Basically, can I wipe it, put my sim card back in, and then use it again.

    Or do I need to bring it to an AT&T person?

    if u wipe the phone through the wipe setting all i know is that the password is blackberry... from what ive been told... proabbly the best bet would go into at&t and show them what apps u want and what apps u dont want for the third party apps u can push the menu button (left of the track ball) and select delete
    hope this was hepfull

    It didn't work. But I can send texts if I click menu> send SMS. Also, will wiping my blackberry make me have to do anything else besides pop my sim card back in and make calls? Do I need to like, reset the phone to AT&T or whatever?

    Thanks for the help guys, really appreciate it.
