Default Remote Lock - lock your phone remotely

I know this has been in discussed in other sections already. I found this video tutorial from a blog, so posting it in the proper section.

This is an effective methods to lock the phone remotely, in case you have lost it and want to make sure your private stuff remains inaccessible.

Ok, but which thief would be stupid enough to leave the phone on, not to mention with the owners sim card?

Another thing is that you can bypass it by flashing the phone again with a software but it's just me... :P

Yeah! It came as a good surprise specially for someone living in a place like me where mobile internet is not very common and most of the security solutions are GPRS based

If you change the default 8 digit code to your own. The code will be asked every time you boot the phone regardless of the text received or not. I have tried that myself. For changing the sim the thief would need to reboot the phone and it will be auto locked.

Flashing would remove the lock but you won't have to compromise on your private stuff e.g. photos, videos and auto-logins to messengers and sites.

you also can put on the lock mode if your sim-card wil be removed.
then it auto locks, and another simcard won't help, without the lockcode ;P
just saying

Not so sure about that..flashing only deletes the C drive. Most of my (our?) stuff is saved on the E drive or memory card which are left intact :P

This is really great, thanks nomi, i have just done this.

I guess nothing is totally secure, a thief could no doubt format by microsd card, but its only full of mp3's, all my photos are on the mass memory.

I really like this idea, if some scrote is going to nick my phone lets make it hard from him.
