Tested the location and scream features yet?
I remember a Youtube report of over a year ago of a guy who was carjacked in front of his house, and the thief made off with this guy's phone in the car. So the guy called up Lookout's location service on his PC's screen, called the cops, and gave them a blow-by-blow of the car's position. It was recovered in 7 minutes by the boys in blue.
Which is why carjackers in e.g. South Africa, Mexico, and Brazil simply kill their victims before making off with the car...
Yes, I have tested both the location and siren and they work great. I am real estate agent and I sometimes meet people that I really don't know so I have it set for my wife to peek into my location anytime she needs to (Must make sure that I disable the service when I am with my girlfriend
