    Question need to ruin my BB 8330

    Advertisement



    hey,
    just the other day someone stole my blackberry 8330 curve. ive deactivated the SIM but i still have the box and all the information i.e IMEI number etc. i just want to know if there is a way i could block or shut down my BB remotely with my PIN and IMEI number. OR can i call my service provider (T-Mobile) and shut it down thru them?
    Thank you

    i would have already called T-Mobile and told them that it is stolen... give them everything you have.... they will put your phone on the stolen list so it can not get back on the network.... file a police report for it... pray really hard and you may get lucky.... i dont know of a way to shut it down or delete it from a remote way unless you installed some kind of software for that purpose. if you set a pass code to get on it after it has been lost then it will wipe itself after 10 failed attempts but other than that... you might be up s*** creek!

    you should be able to call your carrier with the IMEI and they should be able to disable the data functions at least. im not sure, but i think they will still be able to use it as a telephone, nothing else, providing they get a SIM with that carrier, or have the phone unlocked. once you report it as stolen, they will never be able to get a data plan on that phone. i think this is coreect, somebody help me if im wrong.

    Yeah just call your carrier and they will blacklist it. That's about all you can do.

    well, if you have password on the device you are good, as none of the data is really accessible. But as far as the phone goes it is gone for good, at least it becomes a regualar phone, making it next to worthless paper weight. And correct me if i a wrong, but if the device is with BES, cant you do something to like "Kill" it?

    yes if it is on a BES you can pretty much do whatever you want remotely....kill is an option, as well as wipe....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Not only the data but they should also be able to temporarily deactivate the number too to avoid non-authorized use. That way you don't get a mortgage payment cause someone decided to run up a phone they stolen.

    There was a program Hayden posted on the front page a while ago. For $5 you get this app that gets really annoying for someone who's stolen your phone. You may want to purchase that for your next bb. I am going to look into it now...

    This may be a stupid question, but can anyone locate a stolen blackberry through its GPS?
