Security Wipe on bb curve 8520

Hello everybody, I got a question about BlackBerry security wipe.

I wonder if  during security wipe ("emails, conctats etc." and "user installed applications" checkboxes checked) my sms messages will be erased.. 

I have to lend my device to a friend of mine, do you find security wipe safe?

Yes, security wipe is the safe way to rid your device of all it's data. You don't have to remove user installed applications as the wipe will erase the data in the apps but not the apps. However, you can erase the user installed apps if you want to.
