    Android app leads to arrest of car thief

    Lookout Mobile Security leads to arrest of car thief

    No way an iPhone app could do this;)

    That's cool, but you could do the same with an iPhone app.

    Re: Android app leads to arrest of car thief

    A couple of years ago there was a story a day about people doing this with their iphones. Usually they walked around after the thief. Saw one where the guy left an iPad on a plane and they wouldn't go back and get it for him. He watched online as it went to another airport and then home with someone.

    Is there an iPhone app that can allow you to find your phone using a computer? Wouldn't be surprised if there was.

    Yeah, you have to pay for MobileMe or jailbreak and get one of a few apps from Cydia. Also find your ipad.

    MobileMe has done this for years, but the service is also available free. You just use a free Apple login. You can track 3 devices per Apple login.

    hmm, I hadn't noticed that new development, apparently I still have to pay on 3gs.

    I'm not 100% on this, but I set it up on my wifes phone the other day. Make sure it's on OS 4.2 and then add a MobileMe account in the Settings. Login with your Apple ID. It should show only the Find Phone feature available (not the usual email, contacts, bookmarks). That's it. There is a Find My Phone app you can run to find other devices.
