    Hi all!

    So far I'm prety happy with my HTC Tattoo (despite its somewhat crappy quality), but I'm wondering if there's any app that allows me to locate it via GPS if it would somehow get misplaced and/or stolen.

    I know Kaspersky Labs sells an app for this for 'bout 35$, but as far as I can tell, the application only works for symbian s60 phones and windows mobile.

    Ideally, the app would:

    -let me activate the GPS remotely (to save power)
    -allow me to find a lost/stolen phone via computer (google maps)
    -require a special password to uninstall (it would be installed in the phone memory rather than on an SD-card)

    Additionally, it would be nice if:

    -The SIM-card could not be changed without entering a password (= the old PIN-code?)

    Got any ideas?
