    I downloaded AndroidLost and got my pictures off my broken phone. I now have a new phone connected with service. Now, if i send the command to wipe the phone, will it wipe my old phone (with no service) or the new one? I'm scared to send the command in case it wipes the new one.

    The app should tell you which device it's logged into.

    When I sent the command it sent and received from my new phone. Would you happen to know how to switch devices?

    No clue honestly with that app, no experience with it. Have you tried using Android Device Manager? It's the built in remote access find/wipe device service.

    I'm trying to find it on my phone. Is it Lookout?

    No. It's built into the OS. There is an app to access Android Device Manager from another Android device.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...apps.adm&hl=en

    You can also access it on the web from a computer

    http://google.com/android/devicemanager

    For that to work, Android Device Manager needs to have been set up on the destination (old in this case) device as a device administrator in the security section of the settings app.

    No, it's not Lookout, that's an antivirus app.

    Android Lost installs as Personal Notes.

    Try turning airplane mode on the new phone on, then turning off the phone, swapping the SIM card into the old one, and turning on the old one. Then it should wipe the old one. If not, you can uninstall Android Lost from the new phone before turning airplane mode off. (You'll have to turn it off as an administrator in Settings/Security.)
