Re: Motorola I870

Go to this link and click "user manual" on the left; Check page 166 "Advanced features", the manual describes "reset all" - how to reset the phone to all defaults and erase all stored lists. Be aware that the information deleted in this way could possibly still be recovered by someone who really wanted to and had access to the right equipment, but it will not be available to anyone using the phone normally. The only way to ensure this is to at least partially fill the contact list back up with fictional contacts, reset again, then repeat as many times as you can be bothered. once should be more than enough for most routine info. Hope this helps :)

Puk code

A PUK code is required if the wrong PIN number is entered too many times incorrectly. If the wrong PUK is entered too many times the SIM will be permanently blocked.
PUK codes are unique to SIM card. Contact your carrier for the correct code to reset your pin.
