How To Wipe Blackberry Curve
When it comes time to sell your BlackBerry Curve or to give it away to a family member or a friend, you want the security of knowing that your information isn't going to fall into the wrong hands, and in order to do that you'll need to learn how to wipe a BlackBerry Curve. The BlackBerry Curve has two different methods to wipe it, and the easiest to remember is the password method. BlackBerry Curves are designed to be secure, so if you password protect your Curve and the wrong password is entered too many times, the Curve will wipe itself. This BlackBerry Curve wipe will take the device back to its factory default settings and erase all user information and applications. If you want to wipe your BlackBerry Curve, make sure you have backed up any information that you may need later, as there is no way to get anything on the device back once it is wiped.
- Press the BlackBerry key to access the main application screen. Choose "Options," the icon looks like a wrench, and then choose "Security" and finally "General Settings."
- Scroll to "Number of Password Attempts" and change the setting to "3."
- Scroll to "Password" and change the setting to "Enabled." Press the back key to exit the screen, and choose "Save" to save your changes. You will have to enter the same password twice to exit this screen.
- Find the "Lock" icon on the application page and select it. Your BlackBerry device is now locked.
- Type any letter to attempt to unlock the device. Enter the wrong password and press in on the trackball. Do this three times and the device will wipe itself. It will take several minutes to complete the wiping process, and the Curve will reset once it is done.
