no way to gps find it. It just doesn't work that way.

Your options are to call your carrier and report it stolen. Ask them to block the PIN from use.

Before you do that, you could call it or text a message to it asking whoever took to please return it, offer a reward for it if you can. If you don't have the BB locked with a password, at least the thief might read and return it. Who knows. Stranger things in this world have happened.

Sorry to hear about your loss...
