    It wont do a factory reset :(
    It leaves all the data from the last person that owned it on there.
    Any solutions?

    Did you try:

    Settings -> SD card & phone storage settings -> Unmount SD card
    Settings -> SD card & phone storage settings -> Format SD card

    Factory Reset does not affect the SD card.
    --D.

    Factory Reset option 2 - Warning this will reset device back to original factory settings.

    1. Turn off the phone
    2. Press Power key + "x" (on the hardware keyboard) to power on the phone and bring up the recovery screen
    3. Press and hold Volume Up + Camera Key until recovery menu appears, release keys when it appears
    4. Using the Volume keys, select "Wipe data factory Reset",
    5. Press the center of 5-way navigation pad
    6. Using the Volume keys, select Yes -- delete all user data
    7. Press the center of 5-way navigation pad
    8. Using the Volume keys select Reboot system now
    9. Press the center of 5-way navigation pad
