    lol that thread was just closed. Let's not get this one closed too.:)

    Pretty neat story but those guys sure can't take decent pictures - unless the website blurred them to "protect the innocent" or whatever.

    Sounds like a good application and certainly helped these people out. However when I went to the market to download the program it mentions it has an anti-virus program. I've read where several people had horrible lag issues and were able to trace it back to anti-virus running on the Droid?

    Has anyone here on DF used this yet? And, who is VZWDroid?

    It was just a joke based on a thread that just got locked, didn't mean to sidetrack this one.

    I love how people steal anything that can go online & think they won't be caught. I've heard of people with Xbox 360s & PS3s getting caught just by logging on to the owners account. Dumb.

    The AV in the Lookout app only runs when you install an app, or on demand, so no lag in general, although it does add about 10 seconds to the install process for new apps.

    It is an awsome app. Auto-backup of contacts and pictures, locate phone from their web site (using GPS and/or cell location) and AV, all free.

    I also use Mobile Defense which also has the remote locate ability because sometimes one or the other doesn't work, but one of them always will. (Mobile Defense can also lock/unlock your phone and make it scream for help. I think it can also remote wipe).

    WaveSecure would be pretty decent too, the approximate gps location with and then possibly pictures of them if they are stupid enough? Sounds good to me.

    Why is this app from Lookout free? I mean, someone spend the time and money to put this thing together and to offer it for free? I don't understand....what is the catch?

    Why are any of the free apps free? This isn't the first security app made. WaveSecure was rated by google and is free

    Two other things I know of can prevent an activation.

    1) ESN can be locked because it is still associated by an account that is not in good standing (unpaid)

    2) Your account may have changes blocked due to an existing pending change (this can be an error, changes can get stuck in the system, but CS should be able to see it if they look).
