I am not sure this is something you could do. Did you file a police report?
My Pearl was stolen overseas last month. Is there any way to locate the suspect? either by IMEI or by GPS to narrow the location of where the cell phone is broadcasting is?
I think the IMEI can be traced by the network provider.
A fool always finds a greater fool to admire him. Fools admire, but men of sense approve.
They can track it, but it is usually up to the provider
I Unlock All Mobile Devices, questions just ask
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ if it was in europe and a police report was filed then the phone will be deactivated. However they will not go after the person using it.
If it was stolen in asia, north or south america nothing will be done.
The BB is gone.
AT&T will only track the IMEI with a federal court order, no matter where it was stolen. But it can be done....
Sorry to hear about this dr3....sad news. The suggestions above may work but you
may have to jump through some hoops. Good luck with it and I do hope you get your BB back!
Thanks guys, China is China =\, Bought it on 6-24-07, and lost it around 7-27-07, was barely a month old and had all my info in there, luckily no bank info. Just wish I can have it disabled so the culprit won't be able to use it. Blackberry's in China are not even available, noones seen 1 before, nor will the Pearl be avail there, so he's got a Rare Item in his hands.
Hell I should check China's ebay for a Pearl for sale
I won't get the Pearl back and seems the process is tedious to disable it, ah well. Live and learn folks!
That's a big advantage in favor of BES. The BES admin can issue a remote kill/wipe.
Always keep a password and autolock enabled on your BB unless you enjoy sharing all that info...
I always have a pasword on my pearl, just in case is atollen or my brother wants to read my messages. . If you want these thugs not to use your phone have your provider hold the account.
I was locking my BB for a long time but since my parkinson's is getting worse, my wife is checking my e-mails more often for me and the 1st time she tried, she ended up wiping the thing since she dind't know my password and typed in the password wrong 10 times. Now I don't worry about locking it and it never leaves my side. It wasn't fun doing another EA again on it since where I live at, the signal isn't that strong for EDVO.

If you have the information, such as PIN and IMEI, and you want to share it. You can post it here:
Perhaps someone may come across it on ebay or something.
I trust you notifed the carrier immediately that it was lost/stolen. If not you are liable for all charges to the phone, up until you tell the carrier. It isn't like a credit card where you can only take a hit for the first $50.
Thanks Ben, Posted mine.
Dub, It was overseas, meaning I had to use a 3rd party SIM card, not my T-Mobile SIM which can track the phone no problem, I voted to get a Local SIM card as its dirt cheaper then paying for an international service back from the U.S., probably 1 of my mistakes there, as I can get a data plan, trackable/traceable BB, but only downside is I can't use it for voice, .35/minute a bit pricy when Local minutes incoming are free, outgoing are less then .01cent/minute.
