Getting my Text and Emails?
Is it possible, if someone got my PIN and IMEI by "borrowing" my phone to make a call, that they can then start receiving my emails and text messages? Can anyone listen in (spoof) the signals intended for me?

First, please update your profile to indicate the device model number, not the nickname. there are several different "Bold" devices and it helps to know which you have.

As for spoffing, not very likely at all, although I never say anything is totally impossible.

They could have installed spyware however. If you think that has happened, wipe the device using Jl_cmdr (see the FAQ) and then reinstall the OS (see the sticky at the top of the section for your device). Then change all passwords associated witht he device, email and any other password protected sites that you might have accessed on the BB.
