ActiveSync remote wipe

When a mobile device is connected to Live@Edu via activesync there is the ability to carry out a Remote Device Wipe. This can be useful if your phone is stolen/lost. This returns the phone back to its original factory default condition. This wipes ALL information stored on your phone including any photos/videos/data on the storage card. After the phone is reset it will be in the same state as a new phone with no information on it. This operation is permanent and the data cannot be recovered.
