Default Stolen Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

So a while ago, maybe four months ago my blackberry went missing. I tried sending pins to my Curve every once in a while to see if maybe someone had found it. Today I am sitting around and I decided to send a pin. The pin said Hi, to my suprise someone replied meaning they have a data plan on the bberry. I told the person that the blackberry belongs to me and they went all quiet. What should I do? I never filed a police report all I have is the pin, my old box and the tmobile purchase details.

Since they didn't reply, they are probably the person who stole it. Your account should still have the IMEI/PIN/SIM on it. I'd call T-Mobile and report it stolen. They can render it useless.

Maybe send a PIN again first (on the off chance that the person using it bought it from someone thinking it was new) saying you will offer a reward for it's return.

If no response, then call T-Mo.

Sent another message and got delivery confirmation but no reply, so I am calling T-Mo first thing tomorrow and see what they say and think about the whole situation.

Let us know how it turns out. A great learning experience for us all. =)

Regardless, I hope it all works out well.
