    I've been using Theft Aware

    It can be completely hidden. You access it by dialing a 4 digit code on the dialpad.

    Also it uses sms commands instead of relying on data.

    Supports remote wiping, locating, locking and an alarm.

    also has additional settings for those with root. you can backup your settings so even if the phone is factory restored the app remains active. the only way to remove it is with a rom flash.

    I got a free copy a while back from android police.

    Norton an Mcaffee have always been bloat on user systems
    AVG,Avast offer plenty of protection without the false hype hits that keep people paranoid(buying their software)
    Its the 21st Century people,take them collars and leash's off your systems

    remote lock is a mixed bag on seek droid for me.

    app requires you to remove any lock screen delay you have on your phone for it to work properly. A dedicated lock feature would be nice.

    I lost one phone about 4 months ago and since I went to look for the best absolutely unbreakable, and after months of testing only two stool out. Check them out, one of the Amazing feature is that it will locate your phone even if a Thief HARD RESETS the phone. You do need root...

    My list
    1. Theft Aware 2.0
    2. Cerberus

I don't care about backing up my call log. Also, when Lookout scans a new app, the phone practically comes to a standstill. I hated that, plus it seemed to always be lurking in the backgound, so I disabled it.
    I have not had any issues with Lookout at all. It works in the background and gives you notifications in the notification bar when its either scanning or backing up stuff. I know I'm in the Infuse forum, but i have a Captivate and it does not bring my device to a standstill at all. I see no performance degradation whatsoever when its scanning or running backups. Also, it backs up your contacts like Google does, but in the case that you dont have all your contacts in your phone in your Google Contacts, then its still very helpful - atleast to me. So, for me, its a bit redundant but i'm slowly either tossing out contacts or just simply adding them to my Google Contacts. Until then, .... Lastly, it does NOT cost money to back up photos. I have the free version and all my photos on my phone are backed up.

    I'm a fan of Lookout Mobile. Never had to use it, and I hope to never have to. But, it backs up my contacts and photos for me...and its free.
