    If you install the current version of Mobile Defense as a system app it can auto-enable Wireless/GPS location providers as needed and even prevent users from uninstalling the application.

    Ken, how do you install it "as a system app"? Does the phone have to be rooted?

    I can't get this to activate. I get the automated sms when I try to activate it via the site, but after a half hour it never activates. When I press the icon on the phone it just says waiting to activate.

    So the automated text you got had a link that activated it?

    My text just says:

    "noreply@mobiledefense.com: This is an automated activation message from Mobile Defense" + random code after...

    So I get that text and then I click the icon and it gives me a message saying awaiting activation. Do I do something with that random code from the sms?

    Check your email. Should have a link to click to activate from your desktop.

    Handcent may blacklist the message and hide it. You still have to pay for incoming SMS messages.

    I don't pay for any text messages...But the reason you blacklist the MD SMS's is so anyone picking up your phone does not see them an know you have MD installed....

    I just installed this app and think it's very cool! Hope I never have to use it except to find it after I forget where I left it.
