Hi Jungmyin,
there are many Phone Locators or Trackers available. Some of them are free and some of them are with a price.
I will focus on the free ones and just 1 paid (but cheap one) suitable form blackberry.

Some Background information for the Trackers:
- You have to install a piece of software to the TARGET phone. So you need to have access to this phone.
- These apps DO NOT show you all the activity that the phone owner does, just his location
- There are apps that can log all activity (phone, SMS, e.t.c.) but are expensive. I list one just in case you are interested in this FULL surveillance:
http://utilities.flexispy.com/checkphones.jsp?p=1#blackberry (costs~150$)

The list of the free (or almost free) apps that just track the location of the phone/owner:
- http://www.mobireport.com/apps/bl/ (~7$) Pls mail to them (info@mobilereport.com) in order to verify that your phone model (7290) is indeed compatible with this application.
- https://www.moostrax.com/downloads (free). Before downloading check that you have OS (Operating system of version 4.1 or higher in your blackberry).
- http://www.buddyway.com/ (free) before installing mail to them through the contact form (http://www.buddyway.com/contact/) and ask them if your phone model is supported.
- http://www.mologogo.com/download.jsp (free)
- http://www.navxs.com/en/blackberry.html (free) go to this link from your phone and click on the link
- Google Latitude. Any mobile phone with Google maps installed can have also a semi-tacking option. Check below page for more information on how to set it up: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-trace-a-mobile-phone-location-with-google-latitude/

I wish GOOD LUCK and take care.

Try a new battery. This is usually due to a bad or old battery that can't hold the charge properly.

2 scroll to SIM CARD then press jog dial in once to select it

3. Type MEPD (not case sensitive) ( you will not see text appear on screen while typing )

If your mobile shows the error message "Invalid Sim" or "Sim Rejected" the your phone is locked to a particular network. To fix this problem you need to unlock it. Use unlock code to unlock your Blackberry 7290 . To get the code you have to submit network provider, country and IMEI number of the mobile. Make sure yourself whether you have knew the network provider to which your mobile is locked, country to which the locked network belongs to and IMEI number of your mobile. If not you can find the IMEI number in two ways:
1)Go to Options>status
2)Find IMEI on the back of your mobile, behind the battery.
3)Type *#06# and press call button. It will display your IMEI number.
You can find the network provider to which your mobile is currently locked by switch off your mobile and switch on it again. A logo of the locked network will get displayed on your mobile screen. After knew all these get the code from the site Unbblock.com ,by submitting these to them. Unlock it yourself using unlocking instructions which is given in the site itself.
