    Hi guys.

    Just wondering what the best phone/tablet tracker is? One that can find it, make an alarm sound, lock it and all that sort of stuff.

    Google's own one can't be used now, not that it was brilliant anyway.

    Why can't Google's be used now? That's what I use, and it works great.

    Alternatively, I can recommend Lookout, Avast, and Cerberus - but again, I haven't had any need for these since Android Device Manager became a thing.

    I like Zoner.

    All you need is a friend's phone to text your lost phone to turn on gps, get location, set off alarm or wipe.

    Being able to turn on the gps by remote is great because i normally keep my gps off to save battery.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    I can't use the android manager because when I tried downloading it it only allows you to use it if its for business use. Really strange!

    I find Android Lost very good with a lot of options.

    You don't download Android Device Manager. It's included in Android by default.

    Click on Google Settings in your app drawer. It's in there. Activate it. Then open a browser, mobile or desktop, and go to:
    https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager
    ...and you can locate your device.
