    Hi guys and gals

    Anyone use WaveSecure?

    Is it worth it or does it drain battery etc?

    Thank you as always for your help x

    I use it and it works great. I have not had the phone stolen so that part I did not get to test yet thankfully.
    As for battery drain I did not notice any. There was just a recent update too that added a couple more features as well.

    I deleted all my contacts and used the wave secure app to restore them and it worked great as well.

    Over all I am happy with it.

    Great App, I switched to it back in Jan and it's been exactly what they say it is.
    No battery drain here.

    No battery drain that I have noticed. Provides a warm, and free, sense of security.

    great app, won't drain your battery. Download it, set it all up, then forget about it until you need to use it.

    YES. WaveSecure is based in Singapore so every time you send a command to your phone (track, lock, etc.) it charges you 20 cents for an international text message (NOT included in unlimited text plans.)

    Luckily I figured this out early and use Mobile Defense instead. Mobile Defense doesn't let you wipe/backup data like WaveSecure, but you can track and lock remotely, as well as install it as a system app so it is not visible and not uninstallable from the phone

    Weird, I found it by searching for "mobile defense".

    It'll popup as Mobile Defense (BETA).

    I dont want to hijack the OP's thread, so here's a link: https://www.mobiledefense.com/

    There's also another thread about it titled "Mobile Defense"

    Hi,
    Just wanted to clarify that WaveSecure doesn't charges you for the incoming text message but your operator or carrier. In fact, it costs us money to send text messages.

    That said, there is no need to use the web to track your phone unless you lost it. By that time, we feel $0.20 is a small price to pay to increase the chance of recovering your phone.

    In fact, you can perform all the functions like backup, restore, lock etc from the app on the phone. WaveSecure will issue out the commands via http so there is no text charges.

    Thanks,
    cheewee
