BlackBerry Protect is an innovative tool designed to help find your BlackBerry smartphone in the event of it getting lost. By downloading the free BlackBerry Protect application from BlackBerry AppWorld (you can also download BlackBerry Protect here), you receive access to several nifty features which give you a massive degree of control over your BlackBerry via the internet.
Find your BlackBerry
Ever switched your BlackBerry on silent and then couldn't find it? BlackBerry Protect will force your BlackBerry to ring at full volume for you to track it down!
If you have misplaced your phone, BlackBerry protect will allow you to lock it and even display a message on the screen for the person that finds it.
BlackBerry Protect uses GPS to locate your lost BlackBerry, and will allow you to view your phone's location on a map.
Protect the information on your BlackBerry
If you’ve lost your BlackBerry smartphone, there's no reason to worry about whether anyone has unwarranted access to your personal information. Simply log into the BlackBerry Protect website and lock your smartphone.
You can also delete the information on your BlackBerry and microSD card from the BlackBerry Protect website.
Backup your BlackBerry
Your contacts, text messages, calendar and bookmarks can be backed up wirelessly on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Simply specify your settings and your information will be backed up automatically.
When you buy your new BlackBerry (from Dionysus Cellular), you can use BlackBerry Protect to backup your settings, calendar entries and contacts on the old phone, and restore this information on your new BlackBerry.
BlackBerry Protect allows you to protect multiple BlackBerrys. Perfect for businesses and families with more than one BlackBerry!
