How to bar thief from using my bbm pin number

Hi,

 

My blackberry bold 9700 was stolen about a month ago and now the thief is using the bbm service, using my pin number, under his name!  A friend who is my bbm contact, informed me about this.  My service provider, vodafone has barred the line but I guess the thief is now using a different sim card.  Is there a way to stop this thief from using the bbm service?  If I can't get my phone back, I don't want this thief to be able to use it either!  Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Unfortunately, everything you could have done to help now would have to have been done before it was stolen...refer:

As with so many things in life, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". As it stands, it sounds like you've done all that you can.

 

Good luck!
