deleting contacts and email accounts

Hi,

 

I've just taken over a Blackberry 8300 from a colleague who's left the company. Is there a quick way to remove their contacts from the phone & SIM address books on mass? It's agonising having to do it one by one! I've also got the same problem with needing to remove their email settings.

 

Sorry - I'm new to BBs so any assistance will be much appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Re: deleting contacts and email accounts

You can use the wipe function to erase all the data of the previous owner. To do so go to Options -> Security Option -> click on the Menu button and select Wipe Handheld.

Re: deleting contacts from sim card!

Hi again,

 

I've successfully wiped the contacts etc off the phone, but now there are the contacts on the SIM. Anyone know how I wipe the SIM of contacts too?

 

Many thanks,

If you use a PC you can access the SIM through Windows explorer via USB card, and the SIM card will show up as a drive.

 

 

 

Ignore this post, I gave the wrong information.
