    Its in the App scoop, so that means its still beta!..I just tried it and it works. It shows the address and everything. Awesome app.

    Your phone, found!! Misplaced your phone? No problem. Use Mobile Recovery's Phone Alarm feature to sound a loud tone from your phone until you are able to locate it. If your phone is outside the audible range, Mobile Recovery can locate your phone on a map and give you turn-by-turn directions to its location. Your privacy, secure!! If your phone is ever lost, use Mobile Recovery to remotely erase the contacts from your device and lock your phone from use to keep your private information from falling into the wrong hands.

    It works and it ROCKS!
    One of the most important apps so far.

    I saw it in the list, it looks like a really good app.. However I wonder if it would means I will have to leave GPS on all the time? Or would it automatically turn GPS on once the mobile recovery app is activated?

    App is free, but oftentimes the service costs $$. That's why I was looking for more info on their website.

    It's free. There's no fee to anything It doesn't ask for your card info at anytime.

    Is this website giving anyone else the "Bing Maps is unavailable" message? The screenshots for the app look a little different from the app (the battery level is missing in the app).

    Supposedly the app is paid for with your Verizon Total Equipment Coverage...I wonder how they check? Lol, I don't even have Verizon, much less their TEC.

    It will install with a Sprint Pre, and it will even let you open an account but there doesn't appear to be any functionality - I have yet to get the GPS or alarm to work.

    I just downloaded the app and then went through all the motions setting it up....went to their website afterwards to look for phone...it is spot on...not just a dot on a map but my actual address. As far as functions beyond finding a lost phone who knows. Does all I would want it for.

    Seems to work good for me

    Sprint Pre, finally got both of them to work. Apparently the website does not like Chrome (at least on Ubuntu). Opened up Firefox, pulled up the maps. Location grabbed the house next to me (accuracy only to 25m). The phone did manage to send the Sound Alarm and Secure Lock features, but it's kind of funny. I sent them when my phone had coverage, but they didn't pop up until after my phone hit its scheduled airplane mode (1 am). I think that's because my location was set to retrieve again at 1:06 and that's when the app woke up to sound the triggers rather than doing it immediately? Idk. We'll see again at 1:36 lol!

    The way the Secure Lock works is kind of funny. Basically the MobileRecovery app refuses to go out of focus. I couldn't swipe it up, but I could click on the twitter notification to move it to the side, but it refocuses itself if you do that. Next time I will see what happens if you restart the phone.

    I just installed this but I'm not sure if it works yet (my check-in time is 2:02). One weird thing that is happening on my install is that when I click on the launcher icon to open it up, two instances of the app open. If I update or close either of the cards, the other is also updated or closed. I can't see that this is supposed to happen.

    Edit: Well, about the time of the post I had used the send alarm and lock phone feature from the mobile recovery website. Both activated 6 minutes later, at 1:48.

    Deleting now...

    Reason is that the max setting for updating is 60 minutes...and when it updates it minimizes card being used and presents itself in place...and if you disable updates then it alerts you in the same obtrusive way to let you know you have disabled it (every 60 minutes)...will see later about messing with any options on the website that may fix these obtrusive interuptions....It needs to use the notification system we have grown accustomed to instead of notifying you by completely interrupting whatever you may be doing...other than that it's very accurate on my end...

    interesting that their website says "You must be a Verizon Wireless Total Equipment Coverage (TEC) subscriber to download Mobile Recovery " sooooo is it not supposed to work for sprint?

    Contacted them and let them know about the problem. Also considering its still in the beta feed there is most likely gonna be an update, hopefully.

    I agree with you...I am indeed going to email them about the "notification" issue. I also concur on what you said about the fact that it is afterall still in beta....If they reply to my email I will share here with everybody...

    Edit: On their "forum" somebody has mentioned the "notification" issue already a few moments ago with no reply yet. Here is the link to page and you'll see a Pre user has posted there.

    I got this from their terms and conditions. is everyone sure its free? i hate fine print and trying to understand it so if someone could correct me that would be great. is this just saying if you use a data plan this app uses data so you'd have to pay your cell provider or is it saying there are fees for using this app?

    "1. Payment

"


    Kindof sounds like the beta app is free but the official one could have a monthly fee does it not?


    EDIT: Also, it doesn't seem to list the Palm Pre as a supported phone. Only plus models. that's funny. can they have 3rd party apps specific to service provider and not Palm?
