    your information is safe unless the person who found your bb is a hacker that can figure out your password in ten tries or less

    Yep. 11th try wipes it all clean for you. Since it was a work device, if you're on BES, if you report it stolen, can't a BES admin do a remote wipe from the server?

    Make sure you report it to your carrier. You are liable for all charges up until you report it stolen. Not like a credit card where you are only liable for the first $50.

    Once you tell the carrier, they can suspend your account and stop the phone from being used.

    ...and it takes more than a hacker on that side -- it also takes poor choices on this side, for example, choosing password = "blackberry" :cry::cry:
