Blackberry Protect in App World now!
 
App world link: https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/20844

Blackberry website link: BlackBerry - BlackBerry Protect

Apparently still somewhat beta, but released. Works fine for me, loud ring is annoying, "locate your phone" locks on quickly and accurately, send message to display works fine, remote lock works, etc!

I just wish it would turn on GPS automatically, rather than having to have it already on so as to save on battery drain.

Not BES compatible - BES does all the wireless backups, device kill, etc...but can't help you when the device is lost. It will not locate the BB or make it ring in demand. :(

I wish there was a way to download without Appworld.

Even more frustrating when you have a device that has never been on a BES and it still complains about not being able to use it due to the presence of one...

search it on google from your device then from the blackberry website not appworld it will give you a download it today option. that should work as long as you have wifi but you will need to create a blackberry ID

on another note the program works great and does wonders, tried everything even the remote wipe but works like a charm
devices I tried it on were
8530/5.0.x.x
9700/5.0.x.x
9700/6.0.x.x
9780/6.0.x.x
9800/6.0.x.x
all functions work great!

Huh? It's telling that it's not compatible with BES and your device has NEVER been on a BES? You on GMAIL by chance?

On a BES IT Policy, if you go to Common>Set Owner Info you can set emergency contact info there. For federal agencies I have worked for, this has been a tremendous help in recovery of Lost devices, and one that was stolen and found by a civilian. Also, to use this effectively, you should set your Security Timeout in Options>Security>Security Timeout. This will lock the device after a predetermined amount of time, if the device is misplaced. Hopefully That's when the person finds it, BEFORE they go through your stuff. LOL

Anyway, Food For thought.

Cheers!!

I gave this a try..
Installed without a glitch. And while I do a backup of my BB regularly, I like the option of doing a remote backup. Also the added security of tracking or wiping a lost or stolen device is great!

tried this app on my 9100 and my wife's 8520. everything worked great (with the exception of locating the 8520, due to lack of GPS of course). i was pleasantly surprised at how well this app works.

obviously a not needed post :?

but he did point out the point that he knew it wasnt a gps phone, also there are some phones that don't have gps in the device but can give off a location based on Cell tower triangulation. With that being said it is never accurate but still gives you an Idea ....

How does this work if you have a GSM blackberry and they switch your SIM Card and the new card does not have a data plan. i wont be able to locate nor wipe my device right nor use any of the remote features right. Anybody has the same question?

aiharkness 03-09-2011 11:15 AM

Re: Blackberry Protect in App World now!
 
It won't. Has nothing to do with GSM and SIM card; but whether or not you have a data plan.

so then if my bb was to get stolen and somebody replaced the SIM Card, assuming it is unlocked, i wont be able to use any of the remote serviced if the new sim card has no data plan right.

aiharkness 03-09-2011 12:01 PM

Re: Blackberry Protect in App World now!
 
I thought you were talking about restoring data later on when you didn't have a data plan after having backed up while you still had a data plan.

I see now what you are asking, but I don't know the answer to that scenario. I would hope that since the BlackBerry is still associated with your BIS that you would be able to wipe it, track it, or activate the ringer function. However, I can suggest an experiment: Remove your SIM card and see what you can or cannot do.

EDIT: I'm not using it, or else I would experiment myself. However, the automatic remote backup feature is what I see as the most useful, and BlackBerry Protect won't work with content protection enabled. So, I'll stick with doing my own backups once a day.
