Display a message on your lost device

You can display a custom message on your BlackBerry device that anyone who finds your device can see, even if your device is locked. On a locked device, the custom message replaces your wallpaper and any existing owner information that appears on your device screen. On an unlocked device, the custom message appears in a dialog box.
  1. Log in to the BlackBerry Protect website.
  2. If necessary, click the arrow icon beside the device picture to select the lost device.
  3. Click Display a Message.
  4. Type the message that you want to display.
  5. Click Display Message.
If your device is turned off or not connected to the wireless network, BlackBerry Protect displays your message the next time that your device is turned on or connected to the wireless network.
