    I have got a verizon blackberry 8830 from my friend which bought from third party, currently i'm trying to unlock to use sim as i'm out of the states. It is useless for me as a phone. There are the previous phone holder's info all through the bb in anywhere of email and contact list. Is there a way to clear all those info and i could starting to use the lovely blackberry 8830?

    Verizon phones don't use SIM cards so unfortunately that's not gonna be possible.

    The VZW 8830 is a World Phone so yes it has a SIM card. Unlocking it is discussed here: http://forums.crackberry.com/f61/unl...s-8830-a-1356/

    You can call Verizon to get the SIM card and have the phone unlocked.

    Oh okay...too bad the Verizon users in the states can't get one! Well good luck to you; I hope that you'll be able to use it and join in the fun.

    There should be an option to wipe handheld to clear out the old users info. I am not sure about your phone but I go to options >advanced options > general settings then hit menu and select wipe handheld - this restores your BB to factory settings.
