    a week ago i sadly got robbed in the streets of chicago ;( and my baby, the Droid X was with me and it was stolen from me too, along with 20$ lol, i miss my phone so much but im getting a new one tommorow from my insurence

    so to everyone i tell you guys/girls this:

    • PLEASE PUT A LOCK OR A PATTERN LOCK ON YOUR DEVICE! i regret this so much! having a lock on my phone annoyed me allllot! and i took it off , therefore they just simply slide to unlock my phone and basically got acces to my personal stuff ;(
    • BACKUP ALL YOUR CONTATCS, PICTURES, SMS, ETC! i no longer have all my sisters wedding pictures because i was too "lazy' to actually moove things from my phone to my computer and im sure im not the only one who does this, and i regret it soo much!
    • there are apps that track your phone? correct me if im wrong lol, but if these things exist please take some time out of your day to install these apps


    ... with that being said is there any applications that you can use to track your phone? any recommended apps to backup your phone onto a comp? please post any on here

    Wheres my droid can, among other things, send you the GPS location of your phone. Note that GPS must already be on for this to work, but you text/email a key phrase to your phone and it replies with the GPS coordinates.

    Thanks bro, this should be stickied. My password is my full name, only my parents and sister know it, but why would they want to steal my phone. My sister has a DInc. and my parents can't use a smart phone lol.

    If you have insurance with Asurion, you need to take advantage of their awesome app. I used to use Where's my droid, but this does more. Here is what it does:

    - Sound an alarm from a misplaced phone, even if it's set to silent
    - Locate a lost phone on a map, with turn-by-turn directions
    - Lock a lost or stolen phone to ensure your privacy
    - Remotely erase contacts from a lost or stolen phone
    - Available at no added cost with Verizon Wireless Total Equipment Coverage
