      Doing it like a BIOS is near impossible on commercial phones since apps don’t have access to that kind of functionality.

      However, what we CAN do is to have the phone lock when it starts up. Currently we only have the option to automatically lock when the SIM is changed. We could add this as a setting. Pls vote it up if you think it should be implemented.

        I've looked at mobiledefence and those who download their app in the android market are prompted to download another app at their website and delete the original market app. That is because even if an app changed it's name on the first true name would remain in the market. After that all app upgrades are managed at the website. It gets a bit involved.

        It seems a good percentage of the risk of the app being removed would be removed if people used their lock screen. But I suppose human nature being what it is people could use the simple layer of protection of renaming the app in the phone list. If the the theft is looking on the market at your apps your phone data communication is on and the app can work for while.

            Having the call log recorded servers a good purpose but recording phone conversations would lead to many expense lawsuits.

            I know coming from California in the USA where we have to many lawyers per square mile! ;-)

              I emailed wavesecure near the end of December about the very question of a limitation of 4 tracking requests. They emailed back fairly promptly saying that limitation had been removed about 2 months ago!

              In observing the forum for it seems that the administrator does not closely monitor it or comment often. It seems that they want us to email with problems first and one of the main purposes of the is to give place to give a shoutout to fellow users. With that in mind @ Martin with your reported location being so far off it's more than GPS or cell tower access being off in settings. One time I found that Google Maps couldn't give me my true location. What had happened was that an app that used Google Maps had locked it up on it's little project. Forceclosing that other app solved the problem. Looking for apps that use Google Maps ( car locaters etc. ) and closing might prove to be a solution. I hope it helps.
