    Bit of a schoolboy error on my part, just got my android phone & saw that Wave Secure was a recommended app to keep track of my phone & had the ability to lock it down if it ever got stolen. Signed up & registered, then when my free trial expired it kept reminding me to purchase, having got fed up with the reminders I went to the market to uninstall the app.

    This is where my problems began - as soon as I tried to uninstall it locked my phone down immediately. Do Not Pass Go, with out any warning.

    So the next step is to enter your pin, which I can't remember, so I go to the pin reminder part of the website... They cannot email me my pin as they don't have an email address. Well they wouldn't would they? AS THEY DIDN"T ASK FOR ONE DURING REGISTRATION.

    So the next step is to text a temporary pin to my trusted numbers... tried this also - nothing comes through... odd I thought, then I looked at the numbers again, & being in the UK when it's added the numbers it's kept the zero at the start of the so the numbers I presume it's trying to text is 44 0 7..... instead of 44 7 so I won't get the text.

    Next step is to email - 24hrs later still NO RESPONSE. So my new phone is currently a very expensive paper weight.

    Any one got any ideas or able to help me at all!?

    No if I hit the forgot pin it gives me an option to send a temporary pin to my buddies, which they won't receive because of the problem with the phone code.

    Also when I was setting up the software it didn't give me the option to enter my gmail details..... grrrr....

    Good to hear!

    :thinking: But what did they do to fix it? Please give us a few of the gory details, so we have it in case somebody else gets stuck in the same situation.

    Thanks.

    I am wondering about this too.

    I installed it to try it out, and I decided I don't want it, but I am totally afraid to uninstall it... I don't want to get locked out either! but every time I charge my phone I get a taskbar message from it which is really annoying.

    I know it will lock the phone if an unauthorized user tries to uninstall it... but how the hell do I uninstall it? :eek:

    They replied to my email & gave me a universal pin which uninstalled it.

    It was a while ago now sorry - but to be fair to them they were really helpful & it was really easy.

    I installed the new base band update via Rom Manager and everything worked fine and booted up into CW/restarted then BAM locked out from Wave Secure (I completely forgot I even had it on my phone)...I installed this during their free lifetime promotion and I have no idea what my pin is. I had it text my friend but he says it still hasn't come through. It has been a couple of hours. Is there a way to get around this BS?
