    I just got my palm pre stolen

    After filling my report to the police, I canceled credit cards and my cellpone chip.


    Then I realized that they could acces my facebook, twitter, etc. of course they need to change the sim card to one with internet connection.

    What can I do?


    Thanks.

    Go to the Palm website, log into your account and remote-wipe your device.

    (Log in with the same email and password you used on your device)

    They can use wifi! No but seriously, you can remotely wipe your phone.

    I would also log into Facebook, email, and any other place you are worried about and change the passwords right away.

    Did you have a pin or password lock on the phone? That would keep them from doing anything on there. I hope everything gets taken care of!

    Remote wipe will also make the device unusable forever.

    So its a nice little **** you to the person who stole your Pre.

    Remote wiping does not make it unusable forever. It simply wipes all account info, settings, and USB content from the device and takes it back to the initial log-in screen. Reporting it as stolen to the carrier will cause the ESN to be locked - is what makes it unusable.

    ...until it is flashed to another carrier after being sold on ebay.

    Once you remote wipe the device, they can't access or use anything.

    Can you flash to another carrier with a bad ESN? My limited understanding is that once the ESN is locked on one carrier, that's it. Flashing changes the software, but the ESN is tied to the radio board itself. I can get new keys for my car, but if the city has a boot on the car I still can't go anywhere.

    you can flash to another carrier.. some regional carriers will add esn's to their db regardless if it was lost or stolen

    Yes, but what if they remove the sim card before I did the remote swipe?
    with no sim card, no 3g and no wifi, can you acces the phone?

    This worries me... the dude threatened to find me and kill me if I went to the police. and since I live in a highly conflictive city (chihuahua city) I am quite concerned. what if he sees my activities on my calendar or personal info on my email.

    I know its just a fear tactic but with these people, who knows...
