htcsense.com used to be able to do this and worked pretty good but I know you can use lookout and I use that one and I know it works.

Check out Look Out https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lookout&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5sb29rb3V0Il0.

Any stock app you know of? like htc app or android os

Look Out would be better than anything HTC or Android would put out ... Look Out is a Security company that ONLY does security ... Throughout the years Look Out has been written about many times about finding viruses and malware and security breaches in devices and software as well as apps ... It scans your phone for everything ... You should check it out.

MMmmm checking out the reviews for look out some people say it makes their phone slower, also i have another question does the gps has to be on at all times ? wouldn't that drain the battery?

I have the Sprint TEP and "Where's my Droid". They do serve a little different purpose. We all like "Where's my Droid". If you loose your phone in the sofa or forget which room you left it you can just text a phrase to it and volume is turned loud and it starts ringing. Makes it easy to find.

I also use it get my kids attention. If they don't answer a call or text I will send the "phrase" to their phone and it will start ringing loudly. They usually answer quickly! :)

I use the cerberus app. This is a really great app. It has the option to track the phone, take pics remotely, record and whole slew of other things. And the fact that you can hide it from the app draw is a plus. Its well worth the $4

+1 on Lookout. I've been using it for almost two years, and while I've never lost my phone (and hopefully never will), I've tested the locate phone feature, and it works pretty well.

I installed Lookout on my phone, my mom's, my sister's, my girlfriend's, my friend's, and next time I get ahold of my dad's phone it will be installed on there too.

I use "Prey" but with all the lookout feedback i may look into it. I trend to avoid any virus scanning app because i don't want any extra memory drain. I know how it effect my laptop.
