Question

How can I play the alarm sound on my Android device?

Answer

If you have lost your mobile device or it has been stolen, you can send an SMS message to your device to make it play an alarm sound. This requires, however, that you have set up the remote Anti-Theft.

 

When the alarm goes off on your phone, it can be turned off by entering the correct screen lock pattern, pin or password, or you can send another SMS message to your device to turn off the alarm.

 

To play the alarm sound on your mobile device:

 

  1. Send the following SMS message to your device:
    #ALARM#<security code>#<repeat count>
    (Example: #ALARM#abcd1234#5).

 

To turn off the alarm:

 

  1. Send the following SMS message to your device:
    #ALARM#<security code>#0
    (Example: #ALARM#abcd1234#0).
