Default Re: I lost my BB9780...

The BlackBerry determines its location using the GPS system. GPS has nothing to do with communicating that location to you via Protect.

The key phrase in the document at the link I posted, I think, refers to the requirement that BlackBerry handset be connected to the BlackBerry/RIM network, which typically doesn't happen if the user does not have a BlackBerry data plan that is associated with the handset. So, what happens if you lose your device and someone else installs their SIM in it? Will Protect still connect to the BlackBerry/RIM network when the handset connects finds a mobile or wifi network? I don't know. I can imagine that it might, so long as the handset hasn't been wiped or Protect removed, but I don't know.
