How to Stop My BlackBerry From Wiping

BlackBerry smart phones enable busy people to stay in touch with everybody while they are on the move. You can access e-mails, make phone calls and download documents. All these things use up the phone's memory. When the BlackBerry becomes low on memory it will perform a wipe which will result in the loss of all calendar entries, e-mails and temporary files. Proper maintenance can prevent a BlackBerry wipe from occurring.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Connect the USB cable to the BlackBerry smart phone and the computer. Allow the computer to save a backup of the phone onto the computer. (When the phone is connected the BlackBerry software will prompt the user to do a backup of the phone.)

  2. 2

    Delete any e-mail that is no longer needed.

  3. 3

    Shorten the amount of time that the BlackBerry must store calendar events.

  4. 4

    Move media files to a media card so that the memory of the BlackBerry isn't consumed by storing media files.

  5. 5

    Maintain at least 400KB of application memory on the BlackBerry to keep the device from performing a wipe to create more available memory.
