Default lost phone want to disable and delete info.

Please Login to Remove!

I lost my phone. Is there any way for me to remotely delete all info in the phone or to disable future use of the phone.

You should immediately contact your provider (AT&T) and report the phone as lost/stolen. If you are on a BES account, I believe your IT department can do a remote wipe of the device. If not, and no password protection is in force on the device, I am afraid the data and the use of the phone cannot be stopped/suspended/protected.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

If you were on BIS and didn't password protect, the finder will not have a problem in terms of access to your memopad, calendar and contacts.

any reason why you had to ask this twice in the same forum? why are you punishing us with redundancy for your own failure to secure your device?

Do as advised by fonejunkie above. Ask that the SIM be disabled, and the PIN locked. There are third party applications to this that must be loaded to your BB beforehand, if you are not on a BES.

Good luck.

Excuse me? Is it too early in the morning for someone to be nice?

Gross.

Then you will need to make an extra effort in just being nice.

@ Kimba, do as suggested above and contact AT&T.

For your next device, if it's not connected to a Corporate BlackBerry server, you may want to look into Roblock (Roblock || BlackBerry Theft Recovery Software)
