    If you have a second phone you can download life 360. Great app that shows location of each phone. I have it on my daughter's, my wife, and my phone. The other day when I was out of state I was curious so I opened it up and it showed both my wife and daughter were at Wal-Mart. I texted them and asked what they were getting at Wal-Mart just to see what response I would get. They forgot I had that app on our phones and they were confused how I knew exactly where they were.

    It isn't free but Seek Droid is very good. I didn't know that I dropped my Razr getting out of my car. Twenty minutes later I grabbed my Xoom and found my phone via remote activated GPS. Fortunately the phone was hidden by some plants so no one saw it.

    The app also has remote wiping of both internal and SD memory, history on the last ten numbers called on case someone takes your phone and you want to track their calls and a few other useful features.

    Another vote for Seek Droid. I've tried both Seek Droid and Where's My Droid. I've found the GPS location performance of Seek Droid to be excellent. I've never actually lost my phone, but I have tested the app many times. It has always given the correct location of the phone, even when the phone is indoors with little or no GPS signal available.

    I think seekdroid is the winner...saved my phone one time from a thief. It gices you the option to lock and remote wipe and send an alarm with a messag to your phone. The message I sent was "this device is being tracked via gps. The local police will arrive at your house shortly" lol.

    Yes I provided them with my seekdroid account info and images of its location. They said that was enough for them to go with me to the place where it was at. And since the cops tagged along, the guy had no choice but to give it back. :)

    Yea the guy tried saying he found and tried contacting me, which he didn't because he turned the phone off after I kept calling every 5 minutes for it. He apologized and gave it back. I bet he was embarrased/scared lol.

    The thief probably didn't have the phone long enough to give the DA a solid case and the police knew that. Any decent defense lawyer would argue that the thief was in process of trying to return the phone when the police arrived. Now if the guy had the phone for a couple of days and was using it (Seek Droid would show the call history), the cops would've arrested him.

    Eidian is right. The cops were just there for backup. I showed the guy the seekdroid map printouts of the location of my phone.

    I use Wavesecure. I got a free lifetime account for signing up when it was brand new and not owned by McAfee. I've never had to use it but it's tested out just fine.

    Just tested again while the phone is 20 feet from a window and it put the phone in my neighbor's apartment instead of mine.

    For the time being you can also get Norton AntiTheft for free.

    It allows you track the phone, lock, unlock, wipe from a web browser. You can also send a message to the phone for whoever has it to see.

    If you login to the web it will show you a map on your phone's location at 15 minute intervals for the last x days.

    You can also take a picture using the phones camera and have it displayed in web browser.

    If you are near the "lost" phone and can't find it , you can send a message to the phone to play the "siren" sound and that can help to pinpoint the exact location.

    If you enable the SMS feature you register what is called a buddy phone. You can send txt messages to your phone from the buddy phone that contain a command and a PIN. These txt messages can be used to lock, unlock the phone.

    Now to the official disclaimer, I am a Symantec employee and work with the Norton guys so of course I am going to push my companies stuff.
