Windows Mobile: Antitheft SMS Alarm
If you have ever worried about your Windows Mobile phone getting stolen and not being able to locate it you can now sleep peacefully. XDA Member bartwell has developed Antitheft SMS Alarm. The app will send out an array of data to notify of its location. The installation and setup is pretty easy if you understand all the terms used in the app that relate to GPS.
Here are its features:
- Track SMS sending
- Send to up to 5 numbers
- GPS SMS (Send GPS Location)
- IMSI SMS (Send Thief’s IMSI)
- Log Writing (Log of App Data)
- Valid GPS data only
- Non GPS SMS
- Attempt Count
- SIM Card Recognizability
The app sends out all of the data to the numbers when a different SIM card is inserted into the phone. You can set it up to recognize multiple SIM’s if you switch them often. The app is free and available in the discussion thread.
