    I lost my phone in a hay field today and cant find it. I tried downloading the App "Plan B" but didn't work. I tried it on a tablet as a trial and it automatically downloaded and worked. Someone said 3rd party downloads are blocked on some phones and I am guessing that is my problem. Is there a way around this so that I can turn the GPS on so I can find my phone?

    On all three HTC phones I've had, third party apps are blocked by default. You have to go into settings and uncheck the box to allow them to be downloaded. But Plan B is in the market so you should be able to download it to your phone using a computer or tablet providing your data is on.
