    not likely. most of those require at least some initial configuration.

    As stated this is exactly what I did. I have 7 gmail accounts and all are on eachothers buddy lists so to speak. So if my phone every goes MIA I can track on any computer. Plus now I have Wavesecure so it is a done deal

    If you are talking about making a new account and friending yourself that wont work because they have to accept it on the phone i think. But I could be wrong.

    You do have to sign into latitude on the phone though. It's a one time thing but it wont work till you do it.

    I believe you can install lookout remotely from the market and use it without any config. I don't remember configuring anything before I tested it.

    EDIT: I just thought about it. You can install this now from the online market and you should be able to find your friends phone!! Or at least lock it down and mess with whoever stole it.

    Well the latitudebmethod you do ahead of time. I know you were looking at an after the fact option but if you just setup latitude and forget about it itmight come in handy for things lost lost phones or allalebys
