Need directions to erase all contact/calendar/email data so that I can start fresh again

I have a Blackberry 8830 that I want to pass on to another family member, but I need to erase all of my current data including contact/calendar/email. Can someone help in providing the procedure to accomplish this.

You don't want to save anything?

If you do, perform a backup using Desktop Manager of the device before you proceed with the following.

 

 

On the BlackBerry > Options > Security > General Settings > press the Menu key > Wipe Handheld and proceed.

 

This will delete all the settings, preferences, data, messages, contacts, calendar, etc. 

 

It will NOT wipe or delete anything from the Media Card should you have one in the device.
