    Hey everybody, this is my first post here. I'm a newbie so please don;t be mean lol

    I have a T-Mobile G1. It's a pretty good phone cuz it has everything like wifi, gps, 3G, etc.

    the only problem is that most of friends have iPhones and they always know where everyone is. At university none of my friends no where I am. They say if I get an iPhone they can get my location but I don't like the iPhone.

    Is there any app that the G1 has which give my friends my location in real time?

    Thanks

    WaveSecure Beta works as well, but I believe there is a charge to download it now.

    Hi!
    I registered to wavesecure today and at the Subscription Info, says
    Subscription Type: Lifetime Account (for this device)
    but at the device info says
    Subscription Type : Full mode
    Subscription Expiry : December 10, 2012
    So, is it lifetime or until 12/10/2012?
    Thanks!

    I write about technology for Maximum PC and Tested
    in the Transcend
    Define "for that device". Does that mean if a phone were to break and end up replaced under warranty (or have to do a hard reset), we'd have to buy the app? Does that apply every time something like that happens, or just the first time because of the special deal?

    Hi Hegemony,
    The free subscription is valid for the lifetime of the device. However, if you hard reset your phone or upgrade the ROM, you can simply enter your WaveSecure login details and it will continue to protect your mobile.

    WaveSecure recognizes different devices via IMEI. If you get it replaced under warranty, you will need to contact our support team for assistance.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks,

    hi, I just registered and here's what it says on my account's subscription info page:

    Subscription Type: Lifetime Account (for this device) Subscription Expiry: Buy Subscription
    Enter License Key:................................... Add License


    Is that how it should look or do I not have full membership?

    Hi lukasty,
    If your subscription type is lifetime account, it should be fine.

    Hi cheewee,

    Are you saying that if we change phones we can contact your support team to update the IMEI on your records free of charge?

    Hi bluenova,
    WaveSecure is available on several platforms including Android, BlackBerry, Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile. It is based on a subscription model that costs USD19.90 a year.

    For users who purchased WaveSecure, their accounts allow them to freely switch devices between the supported platforms. Because our Android free subscription offer is limited to that device, it doesn't offer this convenience.

    That said, out of goodwill, if your device needs to be exchanged due to warranty, we will review and update the account accordingly if it is valid.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks,
    cheewee

    I installed WaveSecure to my G1. I thought I had lost my Mogul on a hike in the woods yesterday but thankfully someone found it and called me and I am getting it back tonight. I will be buying Wavesecure for it as soon as I get it back.

    BTW my Android subscription shows "day left -"
