I know this phone is an Evo 4g, and it is not on the domain.  The active sync exchange account was just added to the phone.  Does the phone have to be on the domain in order to preform a Wipe Device?  

Also, does Wipe Device just remove the exchange account or does it remove everything from the device so the device no longer works?

When you Wipe a Device - it does just that - it wipes everything from the phone and sets it back to Factory Settings.

If you have not forced a minimum of a 4-Digit PIN on the devices, you won't be able to remotely wipe them.  Have you enforced this?

No I have not.  I'll give that a try.

I'm assuming that if it wiped a phone back to factory settings, it would be an issue if the user has 'rooted' or 'jailbroke' their phone since it does not use the factory software??

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You should also make sure you enable the Refresh Interval as without it - devices won't check in with your server from time to time and if you make changes to the policy - they will never get them.

MS should really have enabled this by default!

Exchange Management Console> Org Config> Client Access> Activesync Mailbox Policy> Properties> General Tab.

Any idea if Disabling the Camera.. Wifi... Bluetooth.. ect. is all revolved around the simple password setting also?

Not related at all.  Optional but unrelated to the ability to be able to wipe the phone.

Is there any way to just wipe the exchange settings from the phone?

The only way to remove the Exchange Settings only is to manually delete the account from the phone when you have the phone in your hand.  You can't just remotely remove the Exchange info unfortunately.
