    I have been using CM7 since Hroark released it. Had lots of time to play with it then. Not so much anymore.

    But, since I use it for virtually everything that I do each day, This phone is an essential part of my day. I hate security stuff but it is necessary unfortunately.

    I use SeekDroid if I lose it, but I realized that I need more. I hate having to punch in a PIN each time I unluck the phone. So...

    I use the Lockscreen Gestures option in CM7 and disable any Slider Display. I have a gesture to unlock and one to toggle sound. This should dumbfound most idiot thieves long enough for me to use SeekDroid.

    The only problem is that if you receive a call the answer slider appears which unlocks the phone. Lol.

    Also, SeekDroid can utilize text commands to remotely control the phone and I am not sure how Handcent will handle these since I have it set for texts to overlay the Lockscreen. Guess I need to test it.

    Lol i actually do the same thing!

    Did you disable the gesture trail?

    I think that makes it even more confusing to people

    I have debated the Trace thing, as a matter of fact. I may disable that too. Thanks LV!
