Did you just loose your BB or did you just find one?

No I've just lost it. I purchased it two weeks ago to replace my 7290. I own my own import company and there is very valuable information on the phone. I could care less about the actual cost of the phone. if there is a way to track it please let me know. If you want to track it and tell me where it is i will also do that.

You cannot track it (unless you have previously loaded a tracker program on it).

Call your carrier immediately and explain it is lost. Ask them to LOCK the PIN, which will disable the BB from data usage. Ask them to suspend your voice account UNTIL you get a new BB. That will save you thousands of dollars of calls to Bangledesh and pr0n babes.

Of course, doing all this will kill the chance of you contacting the person who has it, and you getting it back. Hopefully you have a backup. If your data is that important, you will have.

Good luck.

If you are serious, you could send a couple emails, SMS, PIN messages (from a friend's BB) mentioning a reward for it's immediate return.

"No questions asked, blah, blah". $100 or something to get their attention. That is more than they will get at a pawn shop.

...and then pop him for theft of lost or mislaid property when he returns it. Wham!

On a side note, if this happens to my phone, and because I'm on BES, I can just push a remote wipe, right, and then the phone wouldn't have any data on it? This thread just got me a little paranoid about losing my phone.

The OP never said the BB was stolen. Lost is not stolen. Besides, it wouldn't be quite honest to offer a reward and "pop" him at the same time would it? Nowadays, I would hope the OP doesn't get 'popped'!

I would go this route. Its a long shot, but maybe the best one to get your phone back. If the data is valuable, I'd offer more than someone would get selling it elsewhere.

I second that. But there's not too many of them around. That sucks man sorry to hear that.
You would think though with the gps it should be able to get tracked

That was my point exactly.

Yea, it likely isn't an honest person, hence my suggestion of the bribe (reward), to help them be honest.
