Free phone locator helps you find your lost phone and secure it against theft using SMS commands and SIM change detection.

Features:

-Remote locate: You can remotely locate your phone by sending a SMS command to your device using another phone. The app will respond to your locate command with accurate location co-ordinates of your device via SMS.
(Please see: Instructions and list of remote SMS commands below)
-Remote lock: If you have a PIN/Password enabled for screen lock you can remotely lock your phone screen so that thieves cannot access your phone.
-Remote wipe: You can remotely wipe all your data to avoid thieves from accessing sensitive information on your device
-SIM card change detection: If someone changes the SIM card on your stolen device your trusted contact will receive a SMS with the new SIM details so that you can continue sending remote anti-theft commands to your device using the new phone number. Note: The trusted contact number needs to be set when you install the app so that SIM card changes can be detected incase your phone is stolen.
-SMS commands do not show up in SMS history or notifications, so in case of theft the thief will not know that the device is being tracked.

For remote lock, unlock and wipe to work the Device admin needs to be activated by checking the "Enable Device Admin" check-box once you install and start the app.

Note for Android Honeycomb 3.0 device users: Honeycomb users will have to set their screen lock password/PIN from their phone settings. Remote lock will enable the screen lock for the device so that thieves cannot unlock it if they do not know your password/PIN. Remote unlock is not supported on Android Honeycomb devices hence the device will have to be unlocked by entering the Password/PIN on the device lock screen.

Instructions and list of remote SMS commands:

For remote lock, unlock and wipe to work the Device admin needs to be activated by checking the "Enable Device Admin" check-box once you install and start the app. Without activating the device admin the lock, unlock and wipe commands will not work.
SIM change detection and locate command will work even without activating the Device Admin.
