AndroidLost (AL) is a must, I have it on every one of my phones.
Best to have BEFORE you lose your phone, but you can "push" Androidlost to your phone by going to the PlayMarket, logging in and installing it.
Once you "push" it to your phone wait about 5 minutes.
Text your phone androidlost register
from any phone, and AL will text back a success message if the phone is on and number is the same.
All you have to do now is go to Android Lost
, log in with the google account registered to the phone, and you can begin to control the phone from the web.
AL allows you to "hide" the application so it is not easily found, and if you install AL before you lose the phone you can grant it administrative permission where you can remotely wipe the phone and SD card.
Get it, try it, and for future use get it on your phone before it goes missing.
