Default Can my Pearl's data be erased remotely?

Please Login to Remove!

If I lost my Pearl, would there any way that I could erase all the data in my contact files, etc. remotely? I have a lot of personal info, passwords, etc. stored in my contact files...

Ditto EZ.

Enable password and put it on a reasonably short time out.

If you haven't gotten it back, make sure you call the carrier and let them know. You are liable for ALL usage up until you tell the carrier.

Thank you all.

I'm not on a blackberry server. My device isn't on a password. How would that work: enter a password everytime i wanted to do something on it?? i'm not sure what the time out function is either.

Go to options > security options > general settings. You'll pick a time out period. Do what's reasonable for you. You can also lock the blackberry manually when circumstances warrant.

Forget looking for the options now. I suggest reading the manual next time. Convience is something you cannot have if the device has information vital to your security.
If you buy another one set the password so it will automatically wipe all data if lost and someone finds it.
Another question might be " did you set the owner info section " ? Maybe a nice guy will return it if found.

The OP asked "If he lost his blackberry . . ."

Filling in owner information is a good ideas, though, if you haven't done it. Also, put an in-case-of-emergency (ICE) name and number in there.
