    I've disabled Lookout three times now and it keeps re-enabling itself somehow. Is there any way to stop this? Do I need to go in to the app when enabled and turn things off then disable for it to stick?

    Hi ymmie,

    Have you tried the following?

    Open Lookout on your device and click the menu button, and uncheck "Auto scan".
    • Go to your Android Settings > Security > Device administrators and uncheck the box next to Lookout.
    • Then, go to Android Settings > Apps > Lookout > and choose "Force Stop" then "Clear data"
    • Lastly click the back button and slide over to Running Services > and select any Lookout services running and select "Stop"

    After charging may phone all night the batteries would be dead by 2pm. This is very frustrating when someone travels as much I do. I tried to fix it by resetting the phone and turned off wireless,BT auto-updates and the GPS and it didn't help. Then i put it in safe mode and noticed the Lookout app which comes pre-installed with tmobile. I removed it and now I finally have my battery life back.
