    So, the purpose of this post is solely to ask for condolences. I lost my Bold 9650 a couple of weeks ago. As a placeholder while I wait for the Bold 9930 to come out, I had to reactivate my Curve 8330m. Going from a 9650 to an 8330m is not good times.

    Sorry for your loss. Call Sprint, and make sure they black list your 9650.
    You should keep a lanyard on your Bold Touch, when it finally arrives, so you don't lost that one either.

    Thanks for your kind words. I'm going to attach my 9930 to my hand surgically.

    I didn't because I don't lose phones. Lesson learned.

    Sorry for your loss. I, too, went from an 8330m to a 9650. I wouldn't want what happened to you to happen to me, but I think I'd be okay. The 8330m is still a fine phone. One could do a whole lot worse for a backup.

    Sorry for your loss, I guess it was a valuable and expensive lesson learned. I currently have Blacberry protect on my phone, It was free. There are many others that can locate a lost phone, might I suggest that you look into these different apps, they prove to be worth it

    I recently installed BlackBerry Protect on my phone. If someone finds it, enters 10 incorrect passwords and then wipes the phone, could I still track its location? Or what if they remove the sim card from the phone?

    I do believe it works through the GPS built into the phone, now if the GPS is disabled I don't think the location can be given, but the phone can still be disabled never to work again. At least thats my understanding

    I'm not sure it would disable the phone, just wipe the device data. At least that's what I thought.

    You might be correct, I think the carrier is capable of disabling the phone.

    hehe all the "sorry for your loss" sounds like the death of a family member. I'd be pretty bummed too, and I'm sure it would feel pretty crappy losing your phone. Hopefully you find it.
    On a positive note, the 9930 isn't too far off now.

    The death of a loved one is an excellent time to sit down and talk about Jesus

    back to old reliable I see. Should look in the marketplace and see if you can get a good deal on a used phone, of more modern nature, for the time being.

    I'm going to Europe in September. If the 9930 doesn't come out by then or I otherwise can't get it, I'll look at buying a used GSM phone until I can get the 9930.

    P.S. The 8330 is how I got to know BlackBerry. I can't hate it too much.
