How to Hard Reset Your BlackBerry Pearl

BlackBerry Pearl

If you want to perform a hard reset or wipe out the entire data in your BlackBerry Pearl, perform the steps as provided in the following section. However, before you perform those steps, please note that hard resetting your BlackBerry Pearl will erase all data in your device and revert it to factory settings.

Now that you are aware of what you will be performing, here are the steps:

  1. On your BlackBerry Pearl, go to Options
  2. Select Security Options
  3. Select General Settings
  4. Press the button located left of the trackball
  5. Finally, select Wipe Handheld

Good luck and please remember that performing these steps will wipe out the entire data in your BlackBerry. It is best that you perform a backup just in case something goes awry.

    This is not going back to factory settings. The IT policy of my company is still in there. I paid for this blackberry myself and cannot go back to factory settings without my former employers settings.

    Applause for Iphone and Nokia where you can do that. And ofcourse a reason for me to buy that phone and not another blackberry since I will never be able to use it for work and later decide I don’t want that anymore.
