free ER for BlackBerry apps
When your BlackBerry is lost or stolen you can probably replace it for under $500...
...but that's only a small part of your problem.
* According to the Gartner Group, the cost of a lost or stolen PDA is more like $2,500. Most of that cost goes to recoup the data on the lost PDA. And, of course that's only in those cases where the data could be recovered.
If you think this can't happen to you, consider what happened to some White House Staffers during a 2008 meeting between President Bush and Mexican President Calderon.
According to this Fox News report, an aide to President Calderon stole six White House BlackBerries. Only quick action by the secret service caught up with this aide - seconds before he claimed diplomatic immunity and boarded a plane. Had they not caught him, these BlackBerries - and whatever was on them - would have been lost forever.
The point is: if highly secure environments like this can't protect against these type of thefts...
...how secure is your home or office?
It even happened to Naomi Campbell...
* In 2007, at the Led Zepellin reunion concert, theives snatched Ms. Campbell's purse which contained her BlackBerry. It was full of A-List celebrities' phone numbers. How would you like to call celebrities like Mick Jagger and tell him he had to change his phone number?
And Ms. Campbell is not alone.
* In 2005, Paris Hilton's cell phone was hacked into. Her address book, full of emails and phone numbers of celebrities like Eminem, Vin Diesel and Christina Aguilera were posted online. Almost immediately, all of her celebrity friends were being crank called. Can you imagine being responsible for all of this?
* Finally, in 2008, Prince Harry of England had his cell phone stolen in Africa while doing charity work. In his case, he got it back. (I'll explain how in a minute.) Can you imagine the consequences if he hadn't?
In other words, losing your BlackBerry...
...will wreak havoc on your life
However, until now the problem for BlackBerry users has been that a lost or stolen BlackBerry meant utter disaster. That's why...
...I invented the BlackBerry ER
You see, five years ago we created PocketMac for BlackBerry. This was the first software that opened the "always on" BlackBerry world to Mac users.
It became so popular and created such buzz that Research In Motion - the makers of BlackBerry - licensed it from us.
But while PocketMac for BlackBerry was a major breakthrough in the Mac world, it couldn't...
...help BlackBerry users recover quickly if a BlackBerry were lost or stolen
BlackBerry ER changes all of that. Here's what it does...
It "finds" the crook who has your phone and virtually hands him over to the police...
As soon as you know your device is missing and you've notified your carrier of your loss, it's time to catch the person who stole your phone.
BlackBerry ER will tell you everything you need to know about the thief - all without him knowing. Here's how it works...
When your device is stolen, a common technique for thieves is to replace your SIM card (that's the tiny plastic card that tells the carrier who you are) with his own.
The moment this happens, BlackBerry ER sends a text message to a designated back-up cell phone of your choice. The text message includes:
* The thief's phone number
* The unique ID number for his SIM card (also known as the IMSI)
* And the thief's current location (using your device's GPS capabilities)
Once you have this data, you can file a police report. The police then have the first steps for finding, arresting and convicting the thief who ruined your day.
* Discover who stole your BlackBerry and report them to the police.
* Discover where your thief is currently.
* Recover your stolen BlackBerry in record time.
