How do I do a Factory Reset?

I've decided to hand over my PE to a family member and need to clear everything I've put on it (not much). How do I restore to original, i.e. delete my personal info, uploads etc.??
thanks so much
Oh...I read on the Entourage Forum "Look under Settings and select Privacy. There should be an option to do a Factory Data Reset."

BUT...I can get to Settings...but there is nothing that says Privacy...

Are you running Ermine? If so, are you sure that its not there? If not I think it may be under security and location, but I'm not really sure, I'm not used to 1.6.

I'll let you know if I find out anything more.

EDIT: found what you are looking for:

Tinah, there is a Factory Data Reset in Settings someplace near the bottom of the page (sorry -- running Ermine now ;/). It is in one of the eDGe listings, not anything obvious.

Tap Settings (either the app icon or from the menu button), then tap on the second to last heading (or the last, or third to last) and look for it there.

Good luck!
Let us know if you find it.
And tell why you are giving up your eDGe so soon!!

nope...nothing that remotely says "Factory Data Reset" and I looked through everything.
However I'm quite sure it is reset, after I deleted some of my stuff, my wifi, and all looks back to way it was. (I used the hole for the paperclip).

Why am I giving up, lol...Wellllll, I don't have 'time' to figure everything out. It took me a long time to figure out what there was to know about Windows (Me, XP, Vista and 7, lol) I guess I don't have the patience either...this gizmo is great and it offers a lot...maybe too much for me.
Filark, Sarah, Boris, Emusan (and to all of you who are such patient souls)

The ANSWER for Factory Reset for DINGO is...
To set device to factory data settings: Go to Settings > Device Storage > and then scroll down and select Factory data reset.
tada!!

Good luck, Tinah!!

That is one of the best reasons I know of to give away an eDGe. It took me a long time to figure out what for me were the essentials, but I have the time and I enjoy playing with -- er, I mean learning about (yah, that's it! ) -- the technology. It certainly is not the right device for everyone!!

You might look into getting a Kobo Reader -- the new ones look really sleek!

Factory reset in Ermine can be found in Settings/Privacy, btw. I thought that was odd.
