Contacting your carrier to cancel your phone's PIN will avoid any illegitimate charges appearing on your bill, but as far as tracking the phone without an app such as BlackBerry Protect installed, you're out of luck.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

Re: How possible is it to track a stolen blackberry throug PIN & IME

This just happened to us. Tracking it will be futile, but atleast through the Expert Support Center I can send PIN test messages. I've been checking (with multiple failures) but yesterday it finally was online and successfully received a PIN test again. Shortly after, it was off again. If nothing else it'll be an irritant to whoever has it.
