    Erase and Deregister?

      i am returning my nook today and getting my money back. i am going to wait a few months and see what comes out in the spring. my question is, do i just need to "erase and deregister device" before i take it back? will that remove my email and account info too or is there additional steps to take? thank you

          Butster I am sorry that you are not pleased with your device. But to answer your question, yes that is all you need to do. Erase/deregister will return the device to it's original out of the box state.

            Erasing and deregistering the device will remove all of your information from the nook and that is all you need to do before returning it. Once a device is erased and deregistered, no information is retained in the nook, requiring any user to create a new account or log in with an exisiting one.

             

            Although your nook no longers has your account information, the account you created with barnes and noble is still open. So any purchases and information pertaining to your account can be found by logging in at bn.com with your email address and password.

                Save up another $100 and get The Samsung 7 inch Plus. You get a 1.2 dualcore, 1gb ram, 16gb onboard + up to 32gb mSD slot, WIFI, Bluetooth, USB,  GPS, front and rear camera and wide open market.

                 

                IMO the best 7inch on the market for this price.  **$350 on AZ**

                  I'm looking fwd to the Asus 7" Memo rumored to be comming out this year. I dont need a 7"(I have my Nook color) just want to see how/if it changes the Tablet market

                   

                  A 10" tab with HDMI out and open market is my next tech gadget

                   

                  I really want the Asus transformer. Everything I want and with the dock its close to being a netbook and has 16hrs batt. Patiently waiting for the price drops

                      I will have to read about the Asus 7", haven't read up on that one yet. Not sure what I will end up with, I just need to be patient and wait and see what comes out and at what price I guess. Thanks man!
