  2. From any Home screen, touch the Status bar and drag it down.
  3. Tap Settings.
  4. Tap Security and privacy.

    Note: You must decrypt you media card before the security wipe. Otherwise, the card will become inaccessible.
  6. Swipe up on the screen and enter blackberry into the text field and tap Delete Data.
