Stolen Blackberry PIN should be lock

[ Edited ]

My daughter's blackberry was lost today, I tried to call but the founder did not wanna pick up the call and later jus hung up my call.

I have tried to use the Blackberry Protect to lock it but it always shows "Unable to communicate with your device. The command will be delivered the next time your device is accessible on the wireless network."

I have tried many times but the same message keeps on appearing.

I hope RIM can improve the security system as soon as possible.

And I would also propose to start a thread with all those ppl who have lost their BB to post their PIN on this forum to alert those who wanna purchase a second hand BB so that they do not purchase any stolen or lost set

My daughter BB PIN is <Personal Content Removed>, Blackberry Curve 8520

Thank you

Re: Stolen Blackberry PIN should be lock

You need to read this:

As far as Protect is concerned, if the device battery is dead or the SIM card is removed, there's no communicating with the device. That's not a bug, it's like taking the lifeline away from the device.
