    Hi

    My (wifi) Touchpad got stolen today. :-(
    I read something about there should be a remote wipe option on my palm account, but I don't see anything.
    Is it only for the 3g versions?

    Remote wipe is a feature of your webOS profile page.

    1. Just log into your webOS profile with this link: Manage My Device
    2. Click on the "device options" link next to your device.
    3. Click the link for "lost my phone" (yes, I know it isn't a phone, but they kept the same verbiage as phones and the Touchpad).
    4. The screen below will display to wipe your device.

    There is a "I Lost My Phone" option where I can erease my phone, but does that actually work with a wifi touchpad?
    Now I have done it, and it said the device was ereased, but it happend instant, so I guess it hasn't really been ereased...or what?
    But thanks for the link.

    Re-read my directions above

    It says 'phone' for all the stuff even if you are dealing with the Touchpad.


    Sorry to see you need to do this... but HOPEFULLY you'll find your device again and not have to worry about it being stolen
    Good luck!

    aaaaah....I see. Thanks for clearing it up for me! :-)
    I don't think I will see it again. Only comfort is, that a HP Touchpad is so rare here in Denmark, so when the thief thinks he got himself an iPad he will be so disappointed....until he turns it on! :-D

    LOL. Maybe we'll see a 'new' member here from Denmark soon asking how to "install a ROM" on it and we can get him to meet up with you for some 'help'.

    Hey.
    Great thinking!!!
    Just send him to me.....I will be happy to "help".
    I just got a 3 inch scratch on the back a week ago, so I think I will recognize it.
    Until then, I have been really happy to be in this forum, and I hope to come back soon.

    Best regards

    bigger shame HP/Palm cant find this "new user" via the touchpads serial number if it ever got re-activated as a webOS device.

    perhaps theres a new thing for gram to do, have our devices locations actually do something useful like get logged on a site we can check up on, hell even some kinda of stripped hybrid version of 72ka's work to make our devices log their locations via googles own location services along with IP address with a nice /whois/trace complete with streetmap/directions to your wouldbe thief for the police to start on.

    i know id quite like an app/luna bolt in that i could opt into to help find a stolen device if i ever had 1 stolen.

    You also have the device serial number (also shown in your webOS profile screen) which can easily be brought up on the device's 'Info' screen.
