Smile Heart attack time

Please Login to Remove!

[color=Purple] [/b] Hi all,
Last night at work, I had a feeling akin to a true heart attack. While in the ladie's room, I inadvertantly left my 7100t in one of the stalls. (chalk it up to WAAAY too much overtime).
I'm not usually this dumb, but I've been working many hours at T-Mobile. I went back to my cube, and reached down, as always, to take my 7100t off my belt clip, and put it in my desk drawer. It wasn't there! (I have it in a Innopocket Case, and it catches on my chair).
I instantly panicked. In my 7100t? All of my system logins for the systems I use in my work. (very secure work systems, housing all of our customer's information). All of my logins for my email groups, ebay, the medications I take, appointments for myself and my mother.All the important things one keeps in a PDA.
I will say this; our Resource Planning team, (handles schedules), dropped everything, and sent out a email to my callcenter, demanding they look for my 7100t. They disabled all my logins. As well? The supervisors on duty, contacted security, and went through all the desks in the entire callcenter. I had the Content Protection enabled, as well as the sim card password protected, and a password on the handheld itself. Right when I called Customer Care, and had service suspended, they as well, disabled my imei. (I was unaware the imei can be disabled).
1 hour later, I went back to the same bathroom, and it was under the sink/counter, on the floor. My new Innopocket Case has a small dent in it, but my phone was still there, completely fine.
On the screen? It said "enter password. 1 of 10 attempts left." I instantly unlocked it with my password, and everything was there.
I am now breathing normally....and am very surprised and much relieved at how T-Mob banded together for me.
I will NEVER not use a Crackberry, nor will I leave T-Mob. I recently won a v360 at work, and am using it as a phone, and the 7100t as a PDA. Much as I dearly love and depend on my Crackberry, its voice quality leaves a lot to be desired as far as a phone, even with a Bluetooth.
*you say Crackberry like its a bad thing*

And I thought I was bad! I travel a lot and that's my nightmare. Leaving it in a rental car or on the plane or who know's where. My new 8700c and I are joined at the hip. Oh, and btw, the voice quality, even with my Voyager 510 bt headset is fantastic.
