    The Blackberry Bold is an awesome device. If you want absolute factory default, then don't restore your settings when you install the os. Other wise you just need to go to options, then select security after that you need to click on options, then have to click on general settings, select -->menu and finally click on wipe handheld. recommend starting the process by backing up any existing data contacts, photos etc using the Desktop Manager software. That's it and your job is done.

    Before starting the BlackBerry-wipe process, be sure to back up any information on the device that you don't want to lose. A hard reset and having your curve return to "factory state" are two different things. For a BlackBerry, to correct your terminology, a hard reset is simply a battery pull reboot. For a hard reset, you can pull out the battery while the phone is still on, leave it out for 30 seconds, and then put it in.
