    I pre-ordered an Incredible and I plan to sell my Eris. I scanned through some posts and I see that there have been just a couple of short responses to this question in other forums, so I will ask the question here in the hope that it is useful to others. Question: for safety/privacy, is it adequate to wipe my Eris via the following method before selling it? Settings --> Security --> Factory Data Reset

    Do I need to do more, or will this cover it? Thanks in advance.

    Should be sufficient. Obviously, make sure you sync with google first.

    I just did a hard reset, turned off phone. held down the bottom volume button, and send/call button, and then held down end button. when it boots up, just follow the instructions.

    Should wipe everything off the phone.
