lost phone


I've lost my phone and the battery is now dead. Can I still track it?

i also need to try to open my back up files. Suggestions?

Re: lost phone

BlackBerry Protect is only functionable with a powered on device, if the battery is dead, SIM card remove, etc., Protect will not find and locate the device.


And, the Protect backups are only restorable to a BlackBerry device having the same BlackBerryID as the original.
