Looks like I am protected

BlackBerry Protect

If you have access to the Beta Zone, you may be able to enter the BlackBerry Protect managed beta. Unfortunately, you cannot register for the Beta Zone from Germany, but there are ways around that limitation.

First you need to update your device software to the latest build. Once you have entered the beta, you need to download the client software, register for a BlackBerry ID and then you are good to go.

Locating a device in Germany currently seems to require a GPS fix. I think it would be advisable to also use other means.

But only for BIS-users, right?

Yes. These features are part of BES anyway. And interestingly enough, my BB now reports that it Is connected to a BES. RIM's BES-in-the-cloud, I assume.

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
