Can I get something like this for my BlackBerry?!?!

I don't know about you but I have had 2 of the 6 or 7 mobile phones I've owned over the years stolen! Both by pick-pockets. The first time my phone was stolen out of my bag in the city while I was smoking and reading a magazine, not paying attention to what was going on around me. The second time I was at the footy and it vanished from my coat pocket as we were leaving. One minute it was there, the next minute gone!

So I was pretty impressed by this story I've just read on smh.com about a bloke who managed to track down his missing iPhone using the Apple company's phone tracking software and not a single call to police! You can read the full article here. Pic taken from smh.com.



So I'm wondering if they have anything like this for my BlackBerry. I am pretty paranoid about losing my phone these days so I am extremely careful, but knowing I could potentially track-down a stolen phone myself would give me that extra piece of mind. Plus it would be really cool to play 'police-woman' and go chasing after my phone thief (unless of course they are some hardened-criminal-type with a knife or gun!)
