    Mobile Defense - The First App every new Nexus One owner should download!

    https://www.mobiledefense.com/

    In my opinion every nexus one owner should get this immediately. Its Free and It allows you to remotely activate your GPS to track down your phone with google maps if you lose it or it gets stolen. It does not run fully in the background until you turn it on remotly via the website. It also has an option to remotely turn on an alarm so you can find your phone even if you cant see it (in someone elses purse/ lost in a bush etc..) It also alerts you if someone else puts their sim card into your phone and even gives you their number so you can track them down to get your phone. (hint... If someone steals your phone and switches the sim, Call them and tell them that if they give you the phone back you wont file a police report on them) This seems to be the best way to get people to give your phone back.

    I tested this on the G1 and it really works great. Hopefully it works as good on the N1!

    I WILL be getting this.

    My first Ipod Touch was stolen within 3 weeks of getting it..... I thought it was lost in my house, until 3 days later, when someone started setting up new accounts with MY email and information.

    I didn't get MobileMe which was a mistake. How much is it for Mobile Defense?

    Mobile Defense was free when I tried it a month ago, Probably because it in beta. I assume they will charge people at some point for it but I can say when I tested it with a G1, It felt like a finished product with no bugs I could find. It also does a good job hiding in the phone after install to prevent a would be thief from knowing you are tracking them.

    From the site:
    Mobile Defense is in public beta. Please use our support forum to report bugs and suggest new features.

    Looks like an excellent product, shame it's not available outside the US just yet. Do you know of any alternatives?

    Another option is....

    Not just anti-theft, WaveSecure is a security app that protects your phone, data & privacy in the event of loss. Track SIM changes, lock, backup, wipe & restore data. Find your lost phone via a secure site.

    Download before 31 Jan for free lifetime subscription.

    WaveSecure Mobile Security v3.0.0.43 Application for Android | Tools



    I've also contacted the Developer to check on if this is available outside of the US

    I expect it is - the subscription charge is made in euros.

    MD seems a bit glitchy. Not sending alerts, details not being updated, and other than being able to see what phone number is tied to it, I'm not sure I see much else (that I can get to work at least) that "Where's My Droid" can't do.

    Plus I'm not sure how much I like a company having my phones info like this. Other programs can do these things in a much more direct and secure way.

    I'll play with it some more and give it a chance, but I don't see this beta lasting on my phone for long. Maybe when it gets out of Beta.

    EDIT: Disconnected wifi and my alert came through. That and the lock seem to work fine now - both through cell network and on wifi. Seems to use a lot of battery when connected - but if you lost your phone I guess that doesn't matter too much. Will keep testing...

    I didn't get past the whole needing another phone to register thing - I only have one, and I don't trust my friends enough with my security details. It's probably too complex an app for what I'd be interested in.. something that you can log into a website and remotely lock/find out where it is/etc. would be fine.. all this sms notification stuff I don't need.
