The following question was submitted to SearchMobileComputing.com editors. Can you help? When I use BlackBerry's utility to erase all memory in flash is it truly wiped off the device? I would imagine this is based on resetting all memory gates to zero, therefore nothing is resident in memory? -- Mark T. --------------------------------- Kara Gattine, Associate Editor SearchNetworking.com and SearchMobileComputing.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We have them destroyed when they are past their useful life. there are no guarantees that they are totally wiped. if you put the wrong password in them 10 times it usually wipes them, but with the recovery tricks now a days you can’t be totally sure.

    We used an external penetration test company to evaluate this and we cannot recovery an data from these devices after wiping even if we strip the memory out - but you do need to make sure the process has completed on the device successfully.
