Re: Delet info

Hello PhilipKuffner


Sorry to see you go. Thank you for trying a Playbook


To put the Playbook back to factory settings:-


Tap the dial cog, top right.

On the left you will see a number of options.

Scroll down to 'Security' and tap.

This will reveal some more options, one of which is 'security wipe'.

Tap and you will be offered the option to wipe.You will have to enter the name it requests.

Tap the 'wipe data' tab when it highlights.


Hope this helps





Regards to all (except BB)
