What's your device, Kelly? If it's an Android, I recommend PhoneLocator Pro. It lets you: -Wipe -Lock -Display a message -GPS it -Force it to ring -Get the call log (the standard stuff) Plus it also lets you: -Take a pic of the thief -Listen-in on the thief -Locks out any unauthorized SIM -Survives a Factory Rest (if rooted) True story: about 18mos ago I had my Nexus S stolen (or lost), so first GPS'ed it (thankfully it was a block away), I took a pic of the thief, listened to his surroundings (seemed like a call center), got his SIM # (seeing as he clearly ditched my SIM he had no plan to return my device)...so I went to its location waiting in the lobby & when I saw him the fun began - I locked him out, put a message on-screen & forced it to ring an embarrassing ringtone at full volume. As he fumbled through his bag I approached him & relatively politely retrieved my property. Best 5$ ever spent! He clearly didn't know the power of Android, LoL. He seemed mystefied that I was able to do all that especially when I showed him his picture I had received previous to encountering him along with his number. Available from the Google Play Store.

It lets you: ...I absolutely love that story John & wish I could have seen the guys face when you approached him & told him you know he has your phone lol. Another app for Android that has phone tracking features is Comodo Anti virus which is also a anti virus app and can find what apps are spamming ads to your device, as well as block calls and texts from certain #s and it has a cloud based backup for phones contents and can be set to do these features automatically on a daily or weely basis. Best of all the app is free. - KID ANDROID. ( Team.Android.Canada)
