Default remote lobotomy

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
Does anyone know how to perform a remote lobotomy on a blackberry once it has been stolen? Mine was stolen last night. Please help.

First contact your carrier and tell them to shut down the device.
If this is a company owned BlackBerry, contact your BES administrators to remotely wipe it and disable it.

If you had a password, that is your best hope - after 10 failed attempts, the device wll wipe itself.

That's about it...

There is software that can be installed to allow this. However, you have to install it BEFORE you lose the BB.
Personal: iPhone on AT&T
Work: BB 9650 on Sprint
