I was wondering if there was a way to locate it or destroy it ... General Blackberry forum
Sister's BB Was Stolen
I was wondering if there was a way to locate it or destroy it via OTA so it can't be used lol.
I doubt the person will return it...
I'm guessing that it wasn't password locked. To the best of my knowledge there is no way to wipe the device but call the carrier and have the sim card deactivated
From what i have read, you CAN wipe a device OTA, but only if you are BES.
Only on the BES.
sorry, that really sucks!!
Sorry to hear that. I wish the BB's had a self-destruct mode(Like Mission Impossible) w/a BlackBerry-colored ink that dyed the person in the process. (Just like the bank uses.)
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ call your/her carrier, they can disable the phone from being programmed again and when the person goes to program it, they can track it that way
That's sucks I'm sry man. This happen to me like 2-3 weeks ago.

if its gps enabled cant they locate it? or by using cell phone towers, just like google maps in non gps phones, they can estimate your location pretty accurately now..
Lol that would be awesome.

i think they can mark an esn as stolen or lost and it will be bricked forever.
Who? Because I asked TMO if they could and the rep said no.

hmmm i'm verizon and i know they can.......
Maybe I should dig more.
Jonnyxedge might know?
I lost a 7100i when I was on Nextel and the rep told me they blacklisted the ESN so it could never be used again.
Seems like T-Mobile could do the same.
So the reps I spoke to know nothing then. Ok I have to find one that knows.
Any TMO reps on the Stacks that can help out?
