No, not directly.  You could enter an incorrect password 10 times using event injection, which would force the BlackBerry to wipe itself.

Re: Is their is some method to wipe the device using Coding?

There is no direct way to pragmatically wipe a BlackBerry.  A correction to one point in my post earlier.  The EventInjector class isn't supported by the lock screen.  So entering the incorrect password here 10 times won't work either.

 

You can still use event injection to navigate to the Options, Security Options, General Settings and perform a wipe from the menu.  This isn't an easy task though since the location of the Options can vary based by theme.

 

A device can be wiped remotely from a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Re: Is their is some method to wipe the device using Coding?

Sorry to revive an old thread but I am also intrested in knowing how to remotely disable/wipe a blackberry device. Reading through the posts in the forum and after an extensive googling I have not found any way of doing this. On the other hand I have seen many products (Roblock_BB, gadgettrak, etc... ) that offer this functionality without the use of BES or BPS, some even manage to remotely corrupt the OS so that the device becomes inoperable.

We have looked for such a solution too. We have ended up removing all PIM items, then deleting all content from device memory and removing all applications as a final step.

Thank you Vedernikov, I am thinking of doing the same thing as you but the problem is that my app uses keys stored in the KeyStore and I want the user to be able to delete them remotely as well.

Hm... I've never used the KeyStore, but if it works in a similar manner to a PersistentStore - I guess that application data should be removed together with application.
