    Starting today Verizon has just launched it’s new Mobile Recovery service for smartphones. The service provides such features as: locate phone using GPS, sound alarms, file a claim, remote lock, and remote wipe. The service is free for TEC (Total Equipment Coverage) subscribers and will work on Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, and webOS devices. TEC subscribers can go to www.mymobilerecovery.com to download the mobile recovery application or text “getmr” to 6967 for instructions on how to download the application. Still no word yet on if non-TEC customers can apply for the Mobile Recovery service.

    If they really want to make this a compelling product, they'd have it wipe all data and the SD, not just contacts.

    Or call you and tell you exactly where it's at. Wait a second, that won't work. The phone is gone! :facepalm:

    Won't work on my current BB, even though it says it is supported. So, I wonder how it would work on my future droid?
    Beside, my next contract will be for one-year, so the asurion extended warranty will not be necessary; therefore, I can't get the app since you need FULL coverage (insurance and ext. warranty).

    So does anyone know which app in Market now is best for doing a remote wipe at this point? I don't use exchange so the 2.2 wipe capability does not work for me.

    Thanks. I'm also under the impression that verizon can remotely wipe your phone if you lose it. Does anyone know if that is true?

    Just set this up on my D2 works great no problems at all. Only thing is if your phone is lost or stolen you need access to a computer to activate all the features.I don't think I'd be chasing a thief trying to get my phone back LOL.I did some tests and the GPS locate is very accurate and the phone lock works great.:)
