Will BlackBerry Protect work if SIM is removed?

I have misplaced my telephone, unfortunately it was misplaced in an area that may lack cellular service (basement).

which complicates matters.

 

My question is.  If I buy a new SIM card for my old blackberry and move my service to that SIM Card, will BB Protect still be able to locate my phone.  I assume since service is moved to another device the answer is NO.  Also if someone removes the SIM will BB Protect be able to locate the device?  Again I assume NO

 

Thank you

Your assumptions are correct.

 

No power (battery dead or out), protect will not work.

SIM card removed, protect will not work.

SIM card disabled, protect will not work.
