I just installed 'where's my droid' app, seems to be good.
Free version rings misplaced phone and locates stolen phone by GPS ...both ativated by logging on to web page, or by texting user-set key words to phone.
Pro (paid for version) has many options including wiping SIM and memory card, also sends text to a user-set number to inform u if the SIM has been replaced in the phone.
This wont help randombanana get his phone back, but may be of interest to others before they lose their phone!
Also, I'm NOT a tech head, so would welcome any advice from more knowledgeable members on wether this app has any downfalls?
(apologies if this is old news LOL)
