Missing BB - blackberry id, privacy
A blackberry went missing and the network operator was called up to disable the sim card and I changed the blackberry id password. The device itself was not protected with a password. Could you please tell me:
What data does the "new user" have access to?
Will the blackberry force the new user (regardless or not he is a blackberry user?) to perform a wipe?
The account will be used on a new blackberry Monday - will that give the new user a few days access to the emails?
Would he be able to see camera images (as they are, I believe, saved by default on the media card).
Is there anything else you would advise me to do?
Also, is there a way the device can be reported and blocked by its PIN or IMEI?

Robsteve is correct..
If it is a New device running the newer OS, then soon as the thief (oopss new owner) switches the sim card they will be prompted to provide your BBID and Password. If they are unable to do so, they will have no other option but to wipe the device. So there may be hope to keeping your info safe after all... As for blacklisting your device. Here in the US thats still a carrier option and not many have really jumped in the bandwagon.I'm BB King... And I Approve this Post..
