Default Blackberry is Lost... I have a question?

Please Login to Remove!

If someone finds it and tries to enter the password too many times, what happens?

If a Blackberry turns off by accident, and it has an auto turn-on, will it still turn on?

I have tried to send a few texts to my phone, but the phone never received them... any possibilities on what may have happened?

If you have a password sets and someone enters the wrong one 10 times. the device will wipe all data.

I would assume that if the battery is charged the auto on feature will work as it always has. Why would it be different if it was lost?

As for texts nor being delivered, it could be out of T-Mo's coverage area or the battery could be dead. They don't really have a big foot print.

And if you haven't done so already, make sure you report it to your carrier as lost. You are liable for all charges up until you report it.

Wirelessly posted (Its All About the U!)

Fortunately, no way around it as mentioned above. The device will wipe. I have my phone set now to find with gps. Something to consider

if the SIM card is taken out, would the voicemail still work, as if the phone were off?

how do you have your phone set to be found with gps?
