    Wavesecure for locate and lock though I see they've been bought by McAfee so it should be downhill from here...

    I don't put much stock in virus scanners to be honest. All applications run in a sandboxed environment and cannot access anything on your phone without being prompted for (and pressing) "Allow" so its a moot point in my opinion.

    In regards to lock, wipe, GPS location + send text to your mates saying your phone was stolen...

    +1 for wave secure. It even sounds a high pitched scream (literally a woman screaming) when another sim is put in the phone. Its texts your mates the number associated with the sim....

    WaveSecure is great.

    There are no phone viruses of any consequence, other than theoretical.
