Please clarify. Did he have a password on the device? Was he using BES or BIS? What do you mean "broken into"? I'm just curious.

Just an FYI and somewhat related, my wife got a second hand BB from someone in the office who had bought it second hand from someone else. Her IT guy got it all set up on their BES, then I set it up with Internet email like her old BB was. She started getting emails from some stranger - not the guy. After a month of trying to figure out how this was happening, it ends up somehow Cingular still had the PIN associated with the stranger's Internet email as well as my wife's. Nothing breaks security like a snafu!
