Check your passwords as well, and passwords were you don't have them..

Have a gun?? Load it.

You can't change your BlackBerry Pin number is hardcoded to the BlackBerry unless you broke your BB and get a new one.

SMS are stored by your wireless carrier but I doubt someone could easily get them..

I would suggest that you change all your passwords, and if you have google maps installed check to make sure they have not activated it and are tracking you.

I'm pretty sure that your SMS messages cannot be read without access to your device. (Unless they are a BES Administrator).

What that means is, if you didn't have the device password protected, they probalby could see SMS, e-mail, calendar items, etc. that were onboard at the time. But they can't see new items as they come in from a remote PC or laptop.

Call the police! Forget anything with the device until you contact the police and make note of this problem.

Wow, some of these responses seem a little extreme.

Get a gun and load it? Seriously??

All the OP indicated was that she/he THINKS that the ex has read his/her SMS because "they know who im meeting when etc.".

No offense but that's not a lot of proof of anything. There are many, many other ways that the ex could have obtained this information. Or not. Could be a host of other things.

And simply knowing it does not correlate to "stalking". What has the person done? That's what the authorities will want to know.

But I agree that if the ex's BEHAVIOR is illegal or threatening in any way, contacting the authorities is the very best course of action.

Depends who the people the OP is talking about...

If the 3rd party knows who the OP is going to meet they could know where he is going to be meeting... Granted we don't know the intentions of this 3rd party. (and one would assume if the intentions of this 3rd party was to inflict harm then I would hope the OP would not be bothering posting on this forum.)

(I work for a Sheriff's Office so my mind set on these types of situations is obviously different)

Changing your password and setting your BB to auto-lock is a start. Once you do that your info is secure.

I would have to have more info in this case, but if the person is accessing her accounts without her permission, that alone could be a crime.
My best suggestion (along with several others here) is to report the incident to local law enforcement.
We have worked cases where victims were tracked by cell phones, had phones planted in vehicles, and email accounts accessed.
Every state is different, first stop is local law enforcement. Even if it doesn't reach a point where the activity is criminal, they can point you to resources to help with other issues.

It is possible that some software was installed on it. You should wipe the phone using Jl_cmdr and install the OS again. Also change your cell service providers online account password.

Instructions on wiping the phone:
How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

Not sure what phone you really have but the instructions on the latest available OS are at the tops of device specific forums.

Getting a pre-paid phone kit from Target or Wal-Mart is a cheap way of having a second phone number on a different network. Then if it's not electronic stalking you haven't spent a whole lot of money to find out it isn't. It could just be physical stalking, or the old tactic of using partially known information to make accusations and then judge by the reaction if things are true or not.

I don't believe this type of software exists for the BB.

There is parental monitoring software for Blackberries. I've never tried any but I assume they work.

Even Robolock, although not spyware does send and delete informational emails when being used, including sending a GPS location. So it doesn't sound all that hard to make the software, it just needs to be installed.

If he has access to your account from tmobile depending on your plan he can see who your sending messages to but cant see what you are saying. I know on my bill from att it shows the number anyway.
