    man that sucks, what about blackberry protect.com? you put in your blackberry ID and it should give you a location, also it can make the phone sound the alarm just in case is near by you can hear it....

    Password cannot be bypassed. 10 incorrect attempts and phone will be wiped.

    Hope you have good password, because they can keep trying forever.

    Why would you turn off location services and device-wipe?

    Yes. It has probably been turned off, or the battery has died.

    If your phone is found and recharged by someone either you may track it that way, or they try use the phone 10 password attempts and the phone resets it's self.

    All you can do is keep monitoring the Find My Phone page and see if it comes back online (i.e., if someone charges it).

    Unfortunately, you did about everything possible to make it difficult/impossible to recover or secure your phone. A $20 battery bank would have solved your problem, or just using a charger...

    Unless someone charges it and allows it to connect to a network... there isn't anything you can do.

    Now if you enabled the backup features your data might be saved - check Google Drive to see if you have a current backup, or Google Photos to see if recent photos and videos are saved.

    Most likely they see it's lock and figure out that it's worthless and trash it or sell it for parts. Now if you are "somebody" and that content was known to be in your possession and valuable... then yeah you should be worried. Phone can't be rooted, but if you disable the ten attempts and it's simple password and you were targeted...

    Are we talking local school film? Or you had the latest Game of Thrones on your phone?
