Phone stolen. Possible to shut down device?

I had a Blackberry Curve 8520 that was stolen yesterday. My service provider told me that they will only be able to shut down the line, nothing else. Is there a way to disable the phone? It would be nice if I could make sure no one can even turn it on, or at least make sure it can no longer be used on any service provider. 

 

Thanks, and I appreciate your input. I am located in Malaysia.

Wow, that's a great app. And it's free - I wish I had known about it sooner and downloaded it beforehand! BB should promote this app all the time. 

 

Anything that I can do now, though?

Hello...please refer to this helpful thread:

As with most things, the time to have prepared for your situation was BEFORE it happened.

 

Good luck!
