Formalities to be followed to block lost Blackberry . Urgent ! SOS

I have lost my Blackberry instrument today. I was able to make my sim inoperative by requesting service-provider Vodafone. My phone contains very imp data which should not fall into wrong hands.  I had noted down the IMEI number of my instrument. Now, how do I get the phone inoperative using the EMEI number ? Who should I  be approaching for this ? Will Blackberry do this for me ? Kindly help. I am distressed.

Re: Formalities to be followed to block lost Blackberry . Urgent ! SOS

Hello,

 

This thread contains all there is concerning your unfortunate situation:

Given how important the data on your BB is, we can only hope that you were using a device lock password, for that will ensure that your data is indeed protected. If you did not use that, well...what can I say...good security capabilities can be provided, but it requires that the human actually use them in order to be effective.

 

Good luck!
