Hello, i have been using my work iPhone 4 and calling people via skype for a while, and some weeks ago when i was about to upgrade Cyanogenmod on my ZTE Skate i noticed it was not on my computer table and looked trough my apartment for 5-6hours for it, and it does not seem to be anywhere :(, i think i might have keept in a pair of pants and washed it or lost it on the streets so someone stolen it or lost it in a coat at work, but my work is closed to like 4th August as its IT Department at a school, i hope i will find it =(
if not this is the end of me having an ZTE Skate, a friend said he could get me a cheap Nokia and my mom might have some old Samsung Smartphone with specs as the ZTE Blade we will see what will happen maybe RIP bittin owning an ZTE Skate :(

If only you had installed Lookout or some other 'tracking' software. The very least you could have done is applied screen and sim lock codes.
Have you tried calling the number, although a thief will more than likely just put in a new sim card.

Due to a terrible miscalculation of scale the entire battle fleet was accidentally swallowed by a small dog.

Guess we'll be Samsung buddies. I'm probably upgrading to a Galaxy S2 in a couple of months myself. (though I haven't decided yet.)

Install the app "androidlost" on your new phone and i advice you to give to another phone permission to control your phone - so if you loose your phone that you can find it again

I recommend Cerberus instead. It's a really, really good app.

Also, Android does this too now: https://www.google.c...d/devicemanager

Yeah, the Device Manager doesn't work very well for me either. It seems to work for other people though, maybe it's something about the phone.

Well yeah, but it's like $5 for a lifetime license, no? That's hardly expensive. And from what I can tell, it has many more features than Androidlost.

If you don't want to pay then I'd also recommend Avast Anti-Theft, which is also very good.
