How to delete all contacts on BlackBerry

Have you ever needed to delete your entire Contacts database on your Blackberry device? If you ever have, you must know by now that there is no option to select all contacts in there, and nothing to indicate that such a feat is possible.


Still, its there. Its just hidden away, which is silly, really. Here’s what to do:

  1. Open Contacts app
  2. Hit Menu Key
  3. Choose Options
  4. While in there, type either “RSET” or “WIPE” and it should delete all your contacts. It won’t appear on the screen that you are typing anything, but it should respond once you enter the last letter of RSET or WIPE.

You may need to wait awhile after typing “WIPE”. It will seem as if nothing is happening, but it does work. This same procedure also works in the Calendar to delete your calendar records, if for any reason you ever need to do that without having to wipe/reset the entire phone.
