Stolen mobile

To what phonenumber do I send the words "lock" "wipe" and so on. Does it work if the thief has removed the sim-card already?

Hello Musslan,

 

Please refer to the following articles:

http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Security-for-PC/How-can-I-lock-my-Android-device/ta-p/15606

As mentioned "Send the following SMS message to your device". Sim-card and phone number are linked therefore the sim-card needs to be in the phone.



Best Regards

-Ben

Re: Stolen mobile

Thanks for the answer. Then I have to be quick to send before the thief removes the sim-card. It's a little bit false security... It all depends how fast I can get hold of an other device to send the word.

Re: Stolen mobile

Surely you must know someone else with a phone you can send a text from?
