BlackBerry :: Lost Device: Send "kill Command" To Remotely Wipe?
Apr 12, 2011
A few years ago my work blackberry was stolen while I was traveling. My office was able to send a command to the blackberry to instruct the phone wipe its data. Fast forward to yesterday when I lost my personal blackberry with AT&T. I would like a similar command to be sent to the lost phone. I brought it up with AT&T customer service who have never heard of such a thing.
My wife just lost her BlackBerry 9750 Curve... It had the BB Protect app. I could track his location for a couple of hours and send a display message for return call.... but not answer... so I wiped it.Now, I'm not sure if the device is off, or the wipe procedure has already delete the Protect App...
Can the blackberry desktop manager software remotely wipe out all data and reset it to factory settings? I have bb curve 8530 and I have no information on what software update exactly is the desktop manager.
Blackberry has a remote 'Kill' command to erase all user data in case the device is lost or stolen. I have only seen articles referring to accessing a BES Admin screen, which I do not have.I use my own email server but I do go through the BES to get to it.Can I deploy the Remote Kill from my laptop or do I need to call Verizon or BES if my phone is lost or stolen?I have a lot of sensitive data on my device which I need on a daily basis.
I already have the maximum allowed five devices linked to my apple ac. One of them is an old and out-of-use laptop that I need de-activate as a device in order to activate my iphone. How can I de-activate the old laptop without finding it and booting it up? Can I de-activate it from my main Mac desktop?
Originally I was having a problem where whenever I tried to load an application onto my device I would get an error saying that there was not enough room on the device. (Even though there was about 15GB left...)I decided to try a "Data Wipe" from the Settings menu.The Data Wipe seems to have worked a little too well and wipe everything on the device except the browser app. The device also does not connect to the PC anymore.Whenever I connect it to a computer the "BlackBerry Smartphone" driver installs but nothing else. The Device Manager does not recognize it either. Nor does the Desktop Manager.I have tried a couple different computer and nothing has worked.I have also tried to install the device update, but because none of the drivers will recognize the device I cannot install the update as the update tool does not recognize the device is plugged in.
To Whom It May Concern:My Gmail Contacts are not syncing since I wiped my BB. My BB is setup the same as it was and the Wireless Synchronisation option is set to Yes in the Contacts' Options. My e-mail and calendar still sync properly, how do I get my contacts to sync again?
If an user loses his device and the password is entered wrong 10 times the device wipes itself and the password will be erased too so the phone could be used like new.
Is there any way to prevent security wipe from deleting the device password? Is there any way to disable security wipe? (Maybe finding and deleting the .cod file)
2 days ago my friend brought his 9700 for me to upgrade OS. I used security wipe, then tried using BBSAK to wipe the OS and it asked for password. Then I used AppLoder to install the new OS and it asked for password again.
Why didn't security wipe delete the device password this time?
Yesterday i got notification with new update that i have to setup, so after charging my phone at night i started the update this morning then boom I can't start my nexus anymore...
First I got message ( your device is corrupted. it can't be trusted and may not work properly ) although i didn't make any custom rom nor recovery nor unlock my boot loader
Second I got No command error , then boot loop all the way .....
After some google i tried to press power + volume up and down to enter recovery ( the stock recovery ). I did wipe cash + wipe data factory hoping it solve the problem but seems no way
Also i read Heisenberg's How-To Guide For Beginners many times and downloaded last Stock img but can't install it via fastboot cause i didn't activate usb debugging before nor “Enable OEM Unlock” so i can't even unlock my nexus.
Recovery version : angler 6.0.1 MMB29P
And this is getvar all : (bootloader) version:0.01 (bootloader) unlocked:no (bootloader) hardware-revision:ANGLER-VN2 (bootloader) version-baseband:angler-02.50 (bootloader) version-bootloader:angler-02.45 (bootloader) display-panel:
I've accidentally wiped my brand new Bold 9790 by a mistake after 10 times password try.It seems that I have lost lots of things on it which I cannot remember all of them, but at least I can remember I had "Advanced system setting" or something like that, and "BlackBerry Device Analyzer" and as far as I know two different part for checking Battery status. What should I do to or what I have to do to restore them or to get these back? I also wonder where I can see what I had at the beginning in all tabs and menus and in each part?
So I updated to lollipop...tried everything to fix issues, finally gave up and did a factory reset.
I pulled out the sd card first, just in case. Now that everything is back and running...I realized that the private photos (which I had moved to sd card) are missing. I've Googled around, no luck finding them. Even when I plug into a PC I don't see them.
This might be a stupid question, but I've done some searching and I can't find the answer.I have the Tour 9630, and if I choose to do the OTA update, will it wipe my device? Do I need to backup my e-mail's, contact's, ect?
I know there is Blackberry Protect come with the device after Blackberry OS7. And the device will be asked to wipe its data if I change to another SIM card (without data access). Is there anyway that I can change the SIM card bypassing that if the SIM card does not have any internet connection?
What is the best way to wipe my device before downgrading the device? Is it possible to downgrade os without wiping?3. Alots of downgrades/upgrades and everything may damage the device some how?Im using windows vista 64bit
I have a Torch 9860, and just completed another backup using BlackBerry Protect.This is not my first backup, FYI.And the strange this is every time I login to protect.blackberry.com, my device is not shown.
I cannot receive/send email after perform the security wipe and retore my back up.Below is the step I have done:
1. Perform a complete back up using Blackberry Desktop Software.
2. Perform security wipe manually on the phone via Options > Security > Security Wipe.
3. After wiped, I using Blackberry Desktop Software to restore my backed up data.
4. Starting from now, i can't send/receive emails.
I have try go to Setup > Email Accounts > click into Internet Mail Account, but it bound back to the Setup page. Then i try Message icon > Options > Email Account Management, it prompt up "Unable to open email setup application. Contact your wireless service provider" message. May I khow what happen to my blackberry?
I needed to complete a wipe device last night which i have done, didnt bother playing with the phone after, gone to make a call this morning to find out that it has deleted all my numbers from both my directory and my sim card directory. should this of happened?
I have three email accounts set up on my 8330. I am no longer using one of them, so I deleted it using the email account setup application on the device, as well as going online to my Sprint BlackBerry account and deleting it there. The icon is still appearing on my device, and for some reason, is now the default account for sending emails. Since the account has, in fact, been deleted, emails don't actually go through from this account. It's a huge pain to keep remembering to change the account I send emails from. On a side note - I have also changed my settings to use a different account as my default account - it doesn't make a difference. The settings are right when I check them, but when I test them, the old (deleted) account is still the default. What am I missing?? How can I get rid of this account once and for all? I really don't want to wipe my device and start over...
My daughter has bought today a new Torch 9810. She has entered a new device password. After a few hours she tried to enter her password, but she forgot her password.
After a read of some internet groups, the solution is simple, just type 10 times your password and the BB will restart. I know that all data will be removed, but that is no issue.
Unfortunately the BB will not restart after I retype for then times the wrong password After the reset it starting with a White screen, with a sort of document icon. Within this document icon, appear a lock and cross sign, beneath this icon there is a counter with is repeatedly showing from 0 till 100% and then start over again.
I've tried to disconnect the battery for at least 1 minute, Put in a different sim card, let it run for almost one hour, but nothing seems to work.
