    Stolen cell phones give thieves ear bashing

    LONDON - A new service that makes mobile phones emit a piercing electronic scream if stolen and automatically blocks access to sensitive data was launched in Britain on Monday.


    With the Remote XT security package, which costs subscribers 9.99 pounds a month, a signal is sent to the phone as soon as it is reported stolen. All the phone's data --- like contact numbers, emails or images -- is wiped and an ear piercing alarm also sounds.


    The software, which backs up any wiped data (and can restore the data when the customer has a new phone), can also be used to scan for viruses as the latest generation of phones increasingly has capabilities similar to those offered on laptop computers.

    You can probably do this with a Treo (I'm thinking of SMS-triggered pTunes). But what happens when the thief removes the battery?
