This is a guest post compiled by Onyekachi Ogbonna

Day-by-day the pricing of smartphones are rising. With every new device, the top notch companies such as Samsung, Apple and HTC are trying to grab more funds and add density to their treasury. So has done Research In Motion, now rebranded as BlackBerry.

With the launch of latest BlackBerry 10 operating system the struggling company also has hit the market with expensive BlackBerry Z10 smartphone. By now some of you may have already bought the device, departing with bulk money.


Well, if the device is lost, then what?

We have an answer. We will guide you how to track lost BlackBerry 10 handsets. Yes, just follow the below guidelines.

After buying the brand-new BlackBerry 10 handset don't forget to enable the BlackBerry Protect option through the initial setup process. It is a free service and is offered by BlackBerry itself. It will help you in locating your stolen or lost BB10 device.

For enabling you first need to go into Settings and then tap on the BlackBerry Protect option.



The next page after tapping will require sliding the virtual switch to right. It comes as 'Off' by default. Sliding right will enable the service. Oh yes, you need to have BlackBerry ID for this and need to sign in on the device.

It is done. Yes, easily too.

Now, if the device is misplaced, stolen or lost, just visit protect.blackberry.com website and you can easily locate your device.

On the website you will get the current GPS location of the handset. More to this, you can also play a sound on your lost device, and believe me it is very annoying sound. You can also display a custom message, wipe the device remotely and also lock the handset with a password.

The enabling of BlackBerry Protect service may take about a minute, but it is for sure one of the best and first thing to do after buying BB10 handset. It will save your money when the device goes missing. It will also keep you headache-free.
