    Just checked my AT&T Note II, the option Remote Control has been removed as well. So far AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, all removed the option. I am sure Carriers want you to pay for their tracking options per month.

    As for Lookout app, I haven't really tried to use any of the special function. I only use it to find my phone occasionally just to see if it is still working. I don't plan to lose my phone but it would come in handy if I do.

    I didn't even know Verizon has a tracking option, even if they do there will be a cold day in hell before I ever pay for it

    Wow. I've been trying to figure out this problem all day. Seems that ATT has also removed the "Find my Mobile / Remote Controls" option in settings on my Note II as well. If that is the case, I guess I must use a third party app.

    I have known about this for awhile, but when I tried to use the link today in link.samsung.com it shows that my device is registered EXCEPT when I want to click on the "Find my phone" part. I used the CHAT option after being disconnected TWICE with Samsung the next lady told me that the function is inoperable in the United States. How dumb is that?

    If you are in the US and got this to work, please explain to me how you got yours to register, because I can't get mine to work. Also, I have the remotes function from the "user guide" already activated, but it does not show in my screen. I am BEYOND FRUSTRATED. Help if you can!

    I belive avast may if you text from the allowed number to locate device send you back via text message the lat and long of the device.

    I have not tested this.

    But seems legit.

    Is the Android device manager not sufficient? I get that you need to have gps turned on for your phone to be found though and that's a battery drain...
