The answer is that you can NOT wipe your information off of this phone. Buyers (and sellers) of these phones: beware. According to the two reps I talked to at GreatCall, once your information is on this phone it is there permanently.
When I no longer needed to have this phone for my father, I decided I would donate it to either soldiers overseas or to the local Council on Aging. I called GreatCall to deactivate the phone. First I was asked why I wanted to deactivate it and then I was grilled on what could have possibly been wrong with the service that I no longer wanted it. Then the representative tried to get me to keep the phone for a lower rate (and fewer minutes). After finally convincing the rep that I simply did not want the phone service, she tried to sell me other products that would "keep my father safe" (I didn't want to say that he had died; my reasons for discontinuing the service was none of her business). I waited until I received my final bill to make sure the service was indeed deactivated. Then I removed phone numbers from the phone book, but I could not figure out how to erase the incoming or outgoing mailboxes. Nor could I find a chip to remove. I spent two hours searching the web and reading the four booklets that came with the Jitterbug (Customer Agreement, Quick-Start Guide, Activation Guide, and How-To Guide: a total of 249 booklet pages) before I finally called GreatCall again. The rep at GreatCall claimed that the phone log and the phone number assigned to this phone could not be removed. I repeated to her that I wanted to donate the phone (in case she did not understand what I wanted), and she repeated that there was no way that the phone number nor the incoming/outgoing phone numbers could be erased.
So I found myself stuck with a usable (and barely used) device that cannot be reused without compromising the phone numbers of family and friends. I hope some other electronics company designs a cell phone that's easy to use and easy to re-use.
In the meanwhile, my significant other is in the backyard with a sledgehammer and a Jitterbug having the time of his life.
