    I tried to searching this but didn't find this..

    Anyone else see this? It's for Android and it also locates phones and makes it so no one can look at your info.
    I wonder is Apple will lower Mobile Me since Google has a lot of services that MM does for free.

    This application wasn't developed by Google. The site linked to has the developer as Neevo.

    my iPhone isn't JB
    I never said it was developed by Google, but it's for Googles phones only now. Google also offers free stuff that you have to pay Mobile Me for.

    I have this app on my N1 and it 's amazing how good it works. It even gives you an option to send your lost or stolen phone a message with an alarm warning that cant be disabled without a PIN.

    Jailbreaking isn't the answer. The real solution is when Apple brings open source development to the iPhone which will probably be never.

    Well then, it sounds like JB is the answer.

    There is a free app like this out for blackberries as well.
    http://www.smrtguard.com/Main?module=Root&action=directDownload&m=r

    Its free services include
    Remotely erasing your phone,
    Remotely having all calls forwarded to another number in case you lose/ leave your phone at home.
    Remotely tracking your phone.
    It will alert you if an unauthorized sim is put in the phone.

    That is the free stuff
    For some money it allows OTA backups and restores.

    Maybe someday we'll get something like that for free. I don't mind paying a resonable one time fee for something, but I don't wanna pay monthly for a service that you will almost never use.

    I'm going to look into this.

    Anyone else try it?

    I can get a family pack for Mobile Me for $100 and I know 5 people who would go with it, so $20 a year isn't bad.

    have a look into nuevasync it has remote wipe

    thats ok but the person with the top [erson would have control over everyone else, the people I've spoken to are very happy with nuevasync for the price and features
