    When you find it, make sure to download Lookout. It will locate your phone and you can make it scream if you want.

    I just pulled down Ultra Keyboard last night, and WOW, does it have a lot of options! Haven't really had a chance to test it out much yet though, so we'll see how it goes.

    I downloaded Where's My Droid, has options to text code phrases to it and make it either start ringing or tell you where it is based on GPS coordinates. If the ringer is turned off, it will activate the ringer and start ringing.

    Hey Joser! Been meaning to ask you this: Will it do this even if the battery is dead?

    I did try it, didn't like the layout at all. I also tried SwiftKey, which was decent, but the keyboard is white, and I prefer dark colors. I also tried Better Keyboard, which isn't bad, kinda nice to have punctuation marks up top instead of having to switch to symbols just to access them. But with Ultra, you don't have to switch between 3 different things for numbers, letters, and symbols, you can control audio and haptic feedback, you have several skins loaded by default, compact or full qwerty mode in portrait AND landscape, and a ton more options to boot. I'd have to say, based on the keyboards I tried, it is Ultra in comparison, although I would probably rate Better Keyboard second based on my tastes and its layout.
