Well, that's an interesting requirement; might it cause a complete battery drawdown unless the thief has a suitable charger?

My intention in the event of theft is to minimally enable "emergency mode" and "start tracking" so that information can be collected whenever the phone is turned on, and then optionally view the SMS and call logs and perhaps take a picture from either lens.

I use a pattern screen lock that is engaged after 15 minutes of inactivity or when the phone is powered on, and using the wrong pattern sends a picture to whatever email address I configured. Sometimes I get a picture of myself when my hands are cold and I'm fumbling.
