I tried out Where's My Droid app to make sure it works in case I lose my phone. It worked great!
for lost or stolen droids, id check out wave secure or mobile defense. do a better job than just sending u the GPS coordinates (assuming you left the phone on with the GPS on, too)
+1 for Mobile Defense as a system/app
mobile defense has closed beta until next release.
Anyone have a suggestion for a 'lost Droid' app that doesn't require the use of texting? I don't have a text subscription on my DI...
With Where's My Droid app, you can search for the lost phone from their website on your home computer.
Thanks, but I've checked the website, and I don't think you're correct. You can, with the paid version, use the website to email your phone, but you're emailing it a text message. From the website:
"* Can email phone from computer (To do this you email your phone a text message containing the attention word just as you would from a phone."
I tried it on my free version and it worked. Even if you don't have a text plan on Verizon, you will still receive texts. They will cost 20 cents each. But it's worth 20 cents to find your lost phone.
Thanks, Bob, but I blocked texts on my phone after receiving a boat load of junk text messages (for which I was charged by Verizon). Isn't there a phone locating app that doesn't depend upon texting???
Well, I guess this might work: Download and configure the app onto your phone. Then, if you lose it, call verizon from your home phone and ask to have text enabled on your smart phone. Then after you get your phone back, call verizon and disable texts again.
Also, Verizon has their own phone finding service if you buy their upgraded insurance policy. You could call them and ask how it works.
Thanks, Bob, I'll think about that...
IMO, finding your Droid is worth the 10 cents to send a text without a plan.
