    Hi all

    My phone has no security. if I lost the phone, anyone finding it would have access to my facebook and email accounts, not good. It would be a pain putting a password or pin on to unlock it, likewise logging in to accounts every time you wanted to check an email. just wondered what others do?

    Also what is sim lock compared to screen lock?

    Cheers guys

    That looks a worthwhile app.

    Lol, yeah sounds obvious lol. I mean what does sim lock do? Just stop calls being made? i.e someone could still access email etc?

    SIM lock only engages if someone powers on/off the phone, or tries to use in another phone to prevent charges to your account.

    I use a pattern lock, and have wave secure just in case.

    I love wavesecure. As soon as someone puts a new sim card in it, the screen is pin locked, it sends a texts to your mates saying your phone has been half-inched - aldso giving them the number associated with the sim that was inserted. Then you can remote wipe it, track it on a map, roll up in a police car and laugh at the villain getting handcuffed.

    Of course thats not a 100% guaranteed scenario, but pretty cool.

    And now owned by McAfee, future updates may also include virus and malware protection.
