Re: lost/stolen blackberry

If your older 9800 has had the SIM card removed, drained the battery or such, it is no longer connected to BlackBerry Protect. And, if you entered your BBID on the new Z10, then the 9800 is no longer associated with the Protect account.


Sorry, BlackBerry can't track your device.

Actually, you can have multiple devices listed in Protect. My wife still has her 9810 listed even though she's using a Z10.  It won't make anymore backups, though, because the Z10 is active.

If you didn't purposely delete it from your Protect account my guess is that someone else is using it and it removed it from your account automatically.

JSanders is correct, unfortunately, there is no way to track it. You might be able to report it stolen to your carrier and get it blocked that way.
