    Hi, my BB just got stolen recently, and i had a password lock. If the theif used up all attempts , and then the phone got reset/formatted ( if this is correct?) then will my BBM be "reset" as well - showing no contacts, no messages, etc? if this is so then will i be deleted on my contacts BBM's.

    Yes, the security wipe will make it like new for the new owner.

    Unfortunaly, the contents of the Media Card are not erased and will fall into the thiefs hands. There is an option to encrypt the data, but it disabled by default.

    If the thief were motivated, it could be done.

    Fortunatly, most theives will wipe it and sell it as quickly as possible.

    make sure you call your carrier and tell then it was stolen so they can lock it down.
