effects of "Wipe Handheld" option

I'm a new user with a refurbished Curve 8330.  I need to wipe the previous owner's contacts, addresses, photos, etc. from the device.  I've located the "Wipe Handheld" option under Security Options --> General Settings.  My question is whether this action will delete only the user-entered data or will also remove entire applications that have been installed by my company.  any thoughts?

Re: effects of "Wipe Handheld" option

The Wipe Handheld option only deletes user data, not applications. That is unless you select the option to include 3rd party applications.
