Recover your stolen phone

OK so here's a piece of software that is either genius, dangerous or incredibly naive, I'm still making up my mind. The premise is brilliant. When your mobile gets stolen, which hasn't happened to me ever thankfully but I know it's a problem, there's little you can do. Obviously a thief isn't going to answer your call for a chat so it's pretty futile phoning your number. Wouldn't it be nice to know where your mobile had gone? That's what PhoneBAK does.

  • Sends location of thief

CONS

  • You either need a second mobile or a good friend
  • Please don't go chasing thieves

OK so here's a piece of software that is either genius, dangerous or incredibly naive, I'm still making up my mind. The premise is brilliant. When your mobile gets stolen, which hasn't happened to me ever thankfully but I know it's a problem, there's little you can do. Obviously a thief isn't going to answer your call for a chat so it's pretty futile phoning your number. Wouldn't it be nice to know where your mobile had gone? That's what PhoneBAK does.

By working clandestinely in your phone, the software operates even when the thief switches SIM cards in the mobile. When your mobile is stolen you need to ask PhoneBAK to send a secret message to another mobile number (you must store a number in the software - remember to do this!) telling you the phone number of the burglar and their location. It even works overseas should the thief take flight to another country. With phones becoming increasingly expensive and stored with private data this makes it more likely that you can recover the phone. However, I suggest you call the police as well. As a general rule, thieves aren't that helpful when confronted.

PhoneBAK Mobilephone is an innovative lost & found anti-theft software program that sends the thief's contact number, location and other details to a pre-defined mobile phone number when your mobilephone is stolen!

The program works quietly in the device by automatically checking on the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card, all without the knowledge of the unauthorized user!

When stolen, PhoneBAK Mobilephone will send out 02 SMSes (local and/or overseas) using the thief's own SIM card to destined pre-configured contact numbers together with other information to get the phonebak!

No subscriptions or annual fees.
