Part of what's throwing me here, maybe, is what I know and what I'm used to, and that is that on TMO, your login information is same for account maintenance as well as BIS. Perhaps it's two different things on VZW?

The other more general point I'm confused on is that if someone found or stole my VZW blackberry (if I were a customer), and assuming they successfully got it activated on VZW's network, would they then simply be able to provide *their* verification information and take over *my* BIS account?
