Unhappy BlackBerry Facebook and Email

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I've recently had my BlackBerry Storm stolen and had it connected to receive my emails and facebook, would the person who stole it have access to my facebook? I just looked on my "phonebook" in facebook and have new people (who are presumbably friends with the thief or the person who now holds my BlackBerry) - does this mean that they are receiving my facebook and email messages still or would they have changed it so that it would be their facebook and not mine?

Thanks for any help.

If you haven't reported it as lost/stolen, suspended voice and data services and also canceled your BIS, then all your info is still going to the device.

I would report it and then change all of your email passwords, facebook passwords, etc. I am not a Facebook person, but I would assume that if the password or log in was available on your device, that person now has access.

And you are liable for all charges onj the device up until you report it as lost/stolen.

They will also then have the ability to CHANGE your passwords, thereby locking YOU out. You should change these immediately!

They have to know the password that he has to change it. The phone keeps you signed on but people looking at your facebook on your phone should not know the password. I would change it so your phone won't get any more facebook updates that should go to you.

Most likely he added friends to use your identity to maybe borrow money from them or something... identity theft.

Did you use the lock feature on your phone?
If so, this wont let anyone even access the phone via usb unless they type the passcode on the phone and on their pc.
They also wouldnt have been able to access anything on your phone.

But yes, change your emails and fb logins asap if the thief hasnt already, and call up your provideir and report it as stolen.

Sorry to hear about this. Isn't fun.
