Call AT&T and ask them if they will do it.  Some carriers will do it, others will not.  You won't know until you ask.  :smileyhappy:

IF .. You had  BlackBerry Protect installed on your device that gives you several useful options if your phone goes missing. If you never had it installed then I would advise you to make sure you download it to your new device. BlackBerry Protect is one of, if not the best security application around, and it's free !

Ok, then tell us more information.

 

Whose SIM card is/was in the stolen Torch, when it was stolen? You call THAT company and ask them to block your PIN and IMEI.

 

Some mobile carriers will, and some won't -- just as BillJ stated above. Follow his advice, or provide more information here so someone can help you... but NO one in this forum can block your IMEI for you (or answer questions without more detailed information).

No, the IMEI cannot be derived from the device PIN. Sorry.

I don't even know what the EEUU is... do you mean the EU, as in European Union.. Europe?

 

Some companies will block or suspend the PIN/IMEI, and some will not, it's just their policy to device themselves.
