also, would be very nice to include a change sim notification with the new sim phone number. If someone steals the phone and changes the sim, we can still locate the phone.
I think there is a group of PhoneLeash users who would like to know as much as possible about the app, especially problems in forwarding. Right now, the app is obviously biased towards their needs. The other group wants the app to be silent (some for not the best of reasons). One thing I can tell you is that PhoneLeash is not a "stop thief" app at all. A thief can simply uninstall the whole app in seconds. But I can understand your point about annoyance -- hopefully its minor and they clear on their own anyway.

With the latest version, the format for most commands is
@<destination number or email> <command>

So @2223334444 locate OR locate should work fine

Simply sending "locate" from your forwarding destination will also work.

Yes, in the absence of GPS it will try to use the "network" locationing option, provided its not turned off.

Yes, the website needs a complete redo! Now that I know what to document, I am starting to do just that! And your "complaints" are welcome, thanks for caring, sorry about the long silence.
