New Blackberry ID for a second hand phone?

Hello everyone. I'm planning to sell my Blackberry Bold 9900. However, I'm just wondering if the future buyer of my phone can log in using a new and different account (Blackberry ID)? Does wiping all the data and having it back to the factory settings help?

 

Thank you!

Re: New Blackberry ID for a second hand phone?

If you're migrating to another BlackBerry then you need only log in with your BBID on the new BB, and then validate your email accounts and that will remove the mail from the old phone and move it to the new phone.

If you're not migrating to another BB I suggest you use the email setup icon on the device and remove all of your email accounts from the old BlackBerry.

Once you're done with either step above, depending on your situation, then you should do a security wipe on the old BB and it's good to go for the next user. You must do a security wipe in order for someone else to log in with a new BBID.
