Default KB16295 - How to wirelessly delete the data in the Address Book application

While this one isn't server related, it is waaaaay too useful to not have here. Neat trick, try it out!


KB16295 - How to delete the data in the Address Book application on a BlackBerry smartphone over the wireless network


Environment

  • BlackBerry® Device Software 4.5
  • BlackBerry smartphones



Overview

Warning: The following procedures will delete either all data, or all data and applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. Back up the data prior to performing the procedure. For instructions, see KB12487.
Note: These steps only apply to BlackBerry Device Software 4.5 or later.
To delete the data in the Address Book application and reload it from the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, complete the following steps:
  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, open the Address Book application.
  2. Display the menu and click Options.
  3. Type RSET.
Note: For BlackBerry smartphones that support SureType® technology, use the multi-tap input method.



Additional Information

If wireless synchronization of the Address Book application is turned on, the following message will appear:
This will erase your Desktop address book, and reload it from your server. Continue?
After the data in the Address Book application has been deleted, the following message will appear:
The Desktop address book has been wiped. It will be repopulated from your server.
The Address Book application will be re-populated with Address Book data from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and the following message will be displayed:
Repopulation of the address book
Note: The performance of the BlackBerry smartphone may be affected during the re-population of the Address Book application. The speed of re-population depends on the amount of data transmitted and the speed of the wireless network.

Holy crap, it worked. And the repopulation was REALLY fast. Like 10 seconds. No lie. But I only have about 120 contact entries.

Drinking and BlackBerry'ing just isn't safe. Apparently RIM got this one right.

Oh, wait, I guess it didn't really finish that fast. There are 313 now. Guess I should check Outlook to see how many I should have.....

No, I didn't do a backup first. Gotta live on the edge.

Especially since Sprint put up a tower 1/2 mile from my house.

Seriously, I'm wondering when this would be used as a troubleshooting step.

Does an unlocked Vodafone 9500 count? Cause I got one of them. Still debating selling or keeping it.
