    JlL Commander - Reset to Factory?

    Can anyone explain the difference between a wipe and Reset to Factory in JL Commander? It's clear that a wipe doesn't remove quite everything but I have no clue what Reset to Factory does. Anyone tried it? Any cautions/warnings? THANKS!

    Resset to factory will delete all the data on your blackberry work the same as the "wipe device" option within your security option on the phone

    Wipe will delete the os of the phone trowing the "app erro 507" meaning that you need to reload the os

    if you are looking to clean up the device without the need of reload the os Resset to Factory is the option

    if you are looking to clean up the device and make a fresh os install Wipe is the option

    hope that gives you a answer...

    ok -
    So, wipe removes the OS and Reset to Factory leaves the OS untouched and just removes all the user data?
    So, if I want to completely get everything off the device, I should theoretically be able to do that by doing reset to factory followed by wipe.
    For example, when I do a wipe, my email account stays on the device (as evidenced by its existence after reloading the new OS) Just want to understand all this before I do it.
    Appreciate the reply and very helpful info. Thank you!

    correct

    correct

    Your email account stays on the device basically because when the device is registered with the network automatically pulls the service books

    THANKS - I did both and the email account was still there but your explanation makes complete sense. I should have recognized that but didn't.Glad you did and thanks again for the great information!

    Just top clarify, A wipe will; wipe your phone to preset IF, you reload your phone is on a DM that does not have your pin stored in its database. If it has nothing to restore to, it will restore to factory defaults.

    How come a wipe doesn't wipe the .sfi file?
