    As an aside, may I say that I really love the dev/user interactions that go on in these forums. :)

    I'm using wave defense, and my only issue is not being able to remotely activate sleeping GPS radio should I need it. I completely understand that this is a limitation imposed by android 2.X, so I'm not sure what to say in this case. With any luck, I'll never be needing to track my phone down by some crazy GPS-led wild goose chase in any case. :D

    Hi raidil,
    WaveSecure has its own lock screen and doesn't rely on Android OS' pattern lock. Hence, you can issue a lock command remotely even if your device is unlocked when lost. It works even if you have not set a lock pattern on your phone.

    Thanks,

    Is there a way to register without submitting an "SMS buddy?" I text very seldom, and most of the people that I would trust with this sort of info don't text at all. What texting I do is primarily my students, etc.

    I have a Droid. As I understand it, the SMS buddy is the person who will receive an alert if my SIM card is switched. Since I don't *have* a SIM card, this doesn't seem like a very useful service for me, and insisting that I designate such a person is a blocker. If I cannot register without designating such a person, I won't be registering at all.

    I've had LookOut (mylookout.com) installed on my Droid for about 2 weeks now with no problems (I believe a previous post in this thread mentioned it). The thing that stands out to me about LookOut is that it, along with the other standard protection that MobileDeffense and WaveSecure offers, also has a virus scanner running at all times. Even though the scanner is constantly running, I don’t notice the phone slowing down or using more battery than normal. I like the sense of security I get with the scanner running, but I’m no expert.

    Does the Droid actually need a virus scanner?

    If LookOut does the same exact things as MobileDeffense and WaveSecure, doesn’t the addition of a virus scanner make it more valuable?

    Basically I’m looking into which one of these programs I’m gonna use for the long haul, and LookOut wasn’t mentioned here. Just wanted a complete review, so I figured I'd add my 2 cents.

    I installed it, but it needs a buddy for register. Since I don't have any that would work, I uninstalled it.

    Not sure if I'm the only one that feels this way but for my I actually don't think either of these softwares are very useful. I for one, always have my droid on me. The only time it's not on me is when I'm in the shower. Even when I'm in bed, it's right next to me. I use Google Latitute so i can always track my phone if for some crazy reason it's more than 5 feet away from me and I can't find it or if someone "steals" it. Speaking of stealing, if I were to steal someone's smartphone, the first thing I would do is a factory reset. I'd do it as quickly as possible and then just sell it on ebay. So if someone were to steal your phone, I wouldn't doubt it if it would be on eBay before you even realized someone stole it. Let alone before you have a chance to "wipe" or lock your phone...

    I don't mean to be negative or discredit this software. I'm sure a lot of hard work went into it, I just don't think it would work for me personally. Especially seeing how easy it is to do a factory reset on your device...

    Hi unkilbeeg and aaf709,
    You can register by keying in your own mobile number. I will give your feedback to our development team. Appreciate the comments.

    Thanks,
