    I may have to exchange my T650 due to a hardward defect.

    What's the easiest and quickest way to remove all data on the PDA? I have more than 1000 phone numbers (synch between Outlook and T650). It will be hours if I have to remove them one by one.

    Help!!!

    Wouldn't the new memory still remembers what's there?

    No, a hard reset wipes out everything that is not in ROM. The new memory remembers what is there if the battery runs out. Give it a shot - hard reset and check to see if any data is left over. You will find it as clean as the first day you opened the box!!!

    There are some earlier threads that discuss this--hard reset is not necessarily going to prevent recovering the data. It's probably the best thing you can do though.

    A hard reset won't do it. You've got to perform a Zero Out Reset.

    Very good to know. Quick question though, it says "This reset only works on a Tungsten T5 handheld" so can anyone confirm if the same thing works on 650.

    (I'm think the T5 came out first so when the article was written it may have been the only device with the non-volitile RAM, but I don't know. Anyone?)
    Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
