I read some articles about finding lost BlackBerry devices.Please suggest me some apps which I can install on my BlackBerry Curve 8520 so that if it is lost I can trace it in future. Thanks!
Blackberry has its own free and very effective app called Blackberry protect. If you installed it and have your account in it you still can locate your lost phone and even do more than that: you can erase all its content, you can lock it or you can make it ring louder. But the phone need to be online for that.
So if someone is using your phone, although he changed the sim card, the app it's linked to the PIN of your device and thus make it easy to manage.
But for all that you need to have Protect installed prior...
This is actually the best solution. If you notice I have also mentined it with the link. Still re-posting for your benefit :
Also would highly recommend to install Blackberry Protect from RIM (formerly) from here : https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/20844/
Blackberry themselves have a solution for it in the Blackberry Appworld. Refer to these (kindly do check the supported device list) :
Sorry, forgot to mention, the first product is priced, the other following two are free.
A best app would be Berry Snooper
