Clearing All User Data

Having flirted with the idea of "defecting" to Windows Mobile for a very long time, I've finaly taken the plunge and ordered an Asus M530W.

Although it can't match the E90 in a number of areas, they are really the things I don't use on the Nokia anyway.

So I'll be putting my E90 on eBay (I think I'm not permitted to advertise it here) - what's the best way to make sure I have cleared it of all my details and data.

Most of my stuff is on the SD card anyway but how do I ensure that I have completely "virginised" the device itself.

TIA

download nokia 'device updater' (not pc suite, although i think you need it for the usb drivers lol).

This will let you re-install the firmware to the device (or even a newer version), thus blanking it entirely, and putting it back to an 'out of the box' state.
