Default Calling all Blackberry users!

Please Login to Remove!

I am waiting for approval from my insurance company to accept and send me a new blackberry, lucky I found a backup of a .ipd file for my blackberry (Backup-(2010-08-28) which is better then NOTHING. And I printed all my call logs and I will for this months at the end of the cycle, and call the call logs and reconnect with my clients, hopefully.


Now the apps that I had installed were Google Maps (which included Google latitude), Wheres my phone pro

- I tried Google Latitude and logged on the my PC to track the location but the phone didn't update to the Google servers that night I lost my phone the last update was 55days ago, which is why Google latitude sucks it updates when it can.


- After me and the guy who took my phone we were texting I was offering to pay for it, and throughout that time I FORGOT to send my phone a command using Wheres My Phone, to lock it/gps it. It was at 6am and I was drunk as xxxx.

On the side note, I shouldn't created a backup...lesson learned.


Now...for those who are familiar with their Blackberry and treat it as their computer, with protection and security...

What do you suggest I should install?

For the following:

- Live real-time GPS track...maybe calling a company to track it down or send a command to your self?
- Remote/wireless backup online and a scheduler...
- Notify the authorities or a private company, or notify me if it is around me within a certain ft/yard? (is it possible?)
- After I do a remote backup, completely disable the device.

if their is more security features I have not heard of please share

Preferably free, or cracked...

Anyone has a app close to this, that is currently using. I know their are similar on the web, but I would like to know your input and experience please before I play with them and install and re-install!


Thank you.

One of the main things to do is to put a password on the BB.

Moe, you asked readers, "if their is more security features I have not heard of please share" and who knows what you have heard of but what you put in your post.

A password is the single most significant security measure you can take. If you want, enable encryption as well.

You are also asking about recovery and/or catching the person who has your lost/stolen BlackBerry. That's a different thing.

Personally, I don't hold out much hope for a lost or stolen device. Or rather I'm surprised anytime anyone is able to recover one.

THE BEST thing you can do is put a password on the device and fill in the owner info screen with your complete contact info, with a phone number where you can be reached besided the mobile number for the BlackBerry.

You should also check out our Security section. There is some good data there as well.

Exactly, if THERE ARE ANY other ways as a leverage of security for the blackberry that I have NOT heard of please share. For example: I came across a feature that when your phone gets stolen and someone puts their sim card, a program will auto send your secondary phone, of the persons sim card number and imei number as a LEVERAGE.


Yes I am talking about recovering/and or catching the person who lost/stolen the phone, no it falls in the same category.


Please don't post if its irrelevant or the obvious of what I am aware of, thanks for replying man.

I would advise calling your local police and file a report and let them know that it has been activated on the network, give them the PIN / IMEI of the device, let them take care of it and then they will do the tracing of the device. either way you still need to have that done a lesson learned for sure.

I use smrtguard pro for my security I can lock and wipe my device remotely if I need to. I can also send messages to the user that would of stolen the device. and I can see where it is on a GPS trace.

Either an major attitude adjustment is needed or don't come here asking for help. People are kind enough to try to help you, and you somehow have the nerve to be rude instead of grateful for their time and effort.

Post count doesn't mean anything. Attitude does, though.
