thats a great feature for BB phones. Its gonna be much secured to use a phone even in places your not familiar with..
i'm all for it aslong as it's intergrated into the os and isn't an app. It would also be nice to offer both phone and memory card encryption like nokia's e series.
Just time to NOKIA, Apple, Sony, Motorola and the other do the same ,
a curious reader, 14 Jul 2010what if the bb lost @ ur home & the battery is drained out? an emergency battery power wil... moreAnd what if the emergency battery ran out also? its a never ending cycle. If you thought of it RIM did too.
I really like this program they've put together, or well putting together. I use my Blackberry all the time, with my new line of work. There is a lot of confidental information that I often worry about, if it were to ever get stolen. All I've had to grant any ressurance is the Password Keeper app, and change the security settings on it so that a password needs to be entered everytime you unlock the phone. I like this app, because even though I'm very careful, its nice to know that I'll beable to pretty much wipe it clean from anywhere. Tracking is definatly going to be better, because the GPS Locator App, kills the battery really quick. I can't wait to see this come out. I hope my company will let us upgrade lol.
Nokia's Enterpise series phones have the same features, bar the wireless backup.
Ehhh.. I am a both a Blackberry 9700 and a Nokia N900 user. Very nice of Blackberry to bring this, but making it sound like Blackberry invented this is kinda harsh on Nokia. I have been remote wiping and looking my Nokia phones since 2002.
seems like blackberry bought the lookout application (free application for black berry) i am already using it. it's fentastic
what if the bb lost @ ur home & the battery is drained out? an emergency battery power will b an added advantge
Issam, 13 Jul 2010This is really nice and interesting... Is there any other OS that offers a similar feature?myphone... windows mobile

This is really nice and interesting... Is there any other OS that offers a similar feature?
Just like MobileMe Find my iPhone, even making a sound when on silent is copied.
I've been using it for over a year now, it's handy when you misplace your iPhone when it's on silent.
izza bizzza, 13 Jul 2010always in good hands with BBGreat feature to have with the BB!
It seems that buisnesses have realised the idiots out there these days and decided to take action
Nokia Symbian S60 phones has couple of apps at ovi store with quite similar functionality.
One of them is free, called "PhoneLocator Periodic".
You can get your lost/stolen phone location using it.
Another is "F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile" (i guess its also free).
This one may wipe your data, or lock phone remotely.
