No way to locate unless you installed some sort of tracking software before you lost it.

Make sure to call your service provider and report it lost.

The software will work if it isn't wiped. And if it is, then all the finder needs to do is reload the OS and he/she has a usable BB.

Is the device on BES by any chance? If so the BES Admin might be able to do something.

Would the service provider not have a record of the device pin? And be able to track it through gps?
