Paris Hilton lost her BlackBerry Bold, last night, at the Cannes Film 
Festival in the wee hours of the morning. She searched for it 
frantically at her hotel.

"It's the worst thing that could have happened. It has all my contacts 
in it. The last thing I want is for it to fall into the wrong hands," 
she told reporters.

'I don't know where or when it went missing but I know I've got to find 
it" she told the Mail.

Hilton has been photographed with outfits that match her BlackBerry Bold 
and holding it her hand getting of a car (see photo above.)  The 
BlackBerry Bold has more features than contacts, it has calendar, GPS, 
web browsing, camera with video, and her personal notes.

If her BlackBerry used BES, there would be ways to "Kill" or erase data 
provided the smartphone were turned on. Most likely, she is using BIS 
provided by her carrier, AT&T.
