    I have a 700p with the MR 1.10 update. we all know how much fun that has been as Verizon customers.......I have decided to give Sprint and the 755p a try with their el cheapo SERO plan.....so I want to sell my 700p on Ebay and I have already backed my data up and transferred it to the new 755p. Sooo now I need to clear the memory to sell it (how do I do that and also revert it back to 1.06 or 1.08 and have it also erase my personal data) before I sell it...?

    Easiest way, hold the power button down while doing a reset. When prompted on screen, use the 5-way up button to erase all data. As for MR update, that gets burned to ROM and there is no means to reset it.

    You will not be able to have it revert back to 1.06 or 1.08. The Maintanence Release is a permanent change to the phone.

    To perform a hard reset, see this page.

    You would have to get your hands on the 1.06 or 1.08 versions and install them, same procedure as the 1.10 install, which flashes the ROM.

    You should do a search of this forum for how to do a what I think is call a zero or factory reset. researchers have been able to get data back from phones that have been hard reset.

    If you know your MSL, dial ##786 (or something similar for verizon) then menu>reset. It will ask you for MSL. This is the zero out for the 700P. Hard reset won't remove your ph# or vision login from phone info but zero out does - did this on mine. Good luck.

    Master Subsidy Lock it is a code you will have to get from your provider. I would get your MSID at the same time. (Master Subsidy ID)

    The best thing is to do a factory reset. You can find the instructions here: http://kb.palm.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBC...ase=obj(15574). Or search for Solution ID : 15574 on the Palm support web site.
