The client sets the value of the Status element (section to indicate the result of the remote wipe. The client SHOULD then destroy all data contained on the device, returning it to original factory settings. If it does not destroy all data contained on the device, the client MUST destroy all data that it has ever received from the server and erase any stored credentials used to access the server. The client SHOULD NOT wait for or rely on any specific response from the server before proceeding with the remote wipe.
