Blackberry 8520

I've a Blackberry 8520 on contract for two year expiring this September, I've used the contract sim card on my iPhone and I want to sell the Blackberry 8520, how do I erase all data, BBM messages and contacts?

 

Also since the Blackberry 8520 is on contract, can the buyer check my information such as name, address and others?

Use this guide to wipe the blackberry:

After the wipe, the buyer will bot be able to check any of your information.

Thanks for the reply, I'll do the Security Wipe also the buyer will not know any of my information if he checks the IMEI or the original box code?

Re: Blackberry 8520

The security wipe will erase any personal data associated with the phone.  To be on the safe side, check with your carrier about the IMEI / box code.  I don't see how the buyer could acces this information, but the carrier would have more specifics.
