Re: Delete all contacts

I need to delete all contacts off my BB Curve 9230 and I don't use my desktop manager to back up so I can't use the recommended procedure

My contacts are synchronized to my lap top through an application called Handheld Contacts.  My Blackberry Protect App does not back up my contacts because Handheld does this.    I need to delete all contacts to resolve a problem with Handheld Contacts.  Can anyone help me?

Re: Delete all contacts

Open Contacts app,

Hit Menu Key,

Choose Options

and then

while at the main options menu for contacts type either RSET or WIPE


and it should delete all the contacts on your phone.


It won't appear on the screen that you are typing anything but it should respond once you enter the last letter of RSET or WIPE.


Note: This also works for the calendar, by doing the same thing but in the Calendar app.
