    Need to to take this "Command Pin" back to the drawing board for some tweaks!
    Hi 928Droid,
    Thank you for raising this up and giving us a chance to explain. The reason you brought up is exactly why we introduced SMS Command PIN in WaveSecure.

    When you send SMS commands from another phone, the message will be in plain text. To prevent the original PIN from being compromised, WaveSecure now lets you specify a SMS Command PIN to prevent the thief from getting your original PIN.

    The SMS command PIN only works for lock, locate and wipe. Therefore, even when the thief got to know your SMS PIN, he will not be able to unlock the phone.

    Also, the WaveSecure lock screen only accepts the original PIN, not the SMS Command PIN. This way, even if the thief gains access to your SMS Command PIN, there is no way for him to unlock the phone.

    Alternately, you can just use our secure site and not worry about SMS Command PIN.

    Hope that clear things up.

    Thanks,

    You can also set your texts to not show up on your lock screen, it is a setting in handcent.

    Thanks for the input LakeMountD. Personally, I think it is good practice to not have your message show up when your phone is locked. Kind of defeats the purpose of a lock in the first place.

    Understand, and that makes sense, but it should be made clearer to everyone going forward the ramifications if you don't set and use the secondary Command Pin when sending text commands.

    I still think some thought into a way to "scramble" or mask the Pin # as it is recieved would be a better solution. You guys are obviously very good a what you do, I know the brian trust at Wave Secure can come up with a more secure solution!

    Kind of defeats the whole purpose of having popups. Most people that have programs that popup on the lock screen use this to determine if it is important enough to unlock the screen and reply...or not.

    FYI, not all SMS pop up programs have the lock screen option.

    Hi 928Droid,
    We've posted it on our blog.

    Actually, WaveSecure is already able to intercept text messages for Windows Mobile and Symbian platforms so this isn't a problem. For Android, it is currently not possible to implement. Hence, the need to introduce this until the platform allows us to do so.

    Thanks,

    Thanks again.

    Here is another tidbit of info (in case you don't already know it). When I Secure Lock my wife's Eris , none of the "hard" buttons (home/back/menu/search) do anything , BUT when my Droid is "locked" I can press the "Home" button and get into the phone for a few seconds. Sure, not long enough to do anything, but it is a start.

    Must be a 1.5 vs 2.0.1 OS difference?

    Supposedly, they don't send international texts to US users anymore.
