Can I recover a Blackberry with IMEI # if someone unlocks it????


Someone stole my Bold 9900 and I got the IMEI number from my phone carrier. If someone unlocks it, since it's the phones serial number and won't change, is there a search I can do to see who has put their SIM card in the phone???

Sorry, no there is not.


IF the device is again registered on your carrier, they will know if and who.

But getting them to tell you that could be quite difficult.
