    She can track you while you're tracking her. It's the new foreplay.

    You can cancel the the remote wipe by holding down the Home & Sleep/Awake buttons at the same time as the iPhone/iPod starts up.



    It's more likely your phone would be stolen to be sold to a pawn shop, not for the data on it unless you have credit card info easily accessible.

    I wish they would make this a one time pay app like $10 dollars and we could use it without mobilme. I love this idea but i really dont want to buy the mobileme service.

    I think that's pretty much the idea. Add enough stuff to Mobile Me so that it seems worth it.



    For my money, they're not quite there yet, but they're getting there.

    Works perfectly, although I did not test the wipe feature. But find my phone and send message and tone work a treat!

    AT&T has a service, I think for $2 a phone per month, that can locate your phone on their network. I?d figure it uses the cell towers, not GPS, but like the MobileMe it?s not detectible to the user.

    Change the IMEI = jail term. Only one unlocker for the iphone gave you that option and it was removed (and that unlocker doesn't work any more).



    Someone who's hawking a phone for drug money etc. isn't going to go to the expense of working out how to change the IMEI (on most phones that's very hard to do anyway). They'll see it's been bricked and therefore worthless and throw it away - it stops them running up your phone bill etc.



    OTOH if you wipe it they can still use it - and sell it.

    Tracking not working while roaming in Germany...



    Is it supposed to work while roaming? I don't think that was ever really said one way or another. Anyone know?

    I'm still waiting for the James Bond-style "Explode My iPhone" for whatever bastards happen to take it.

    I've yet to get it working for me. I'd give the details but I think I'm not supposed to go there.

    You can only do this once. Once you wipe, as of now, you can't re-wipe. ewww, that sounded bad when I said it out load.

The price of jumping in head first.



    I was finally able to get me.com to find my iPhone, send it a message and then attempt to remote wipe it.



    The issue was that I had Fetch on manual and Push turned off, despite having Find My iPhone turned on in the Mail preferences for Mobile Me. if both are turned off my phone can?t be found despite still getting mail from MM and having Maps find my location via GPS. After I turned either of them on the ?what?s up?? message and remote wipe I sent nearly 24 hours ago popped up.



    Another issue, as stated earlier in this thread, is that you can hold down the Sleep and Home buttons to turn off the device before the wipe executes. When you restart the wipe command is gone and the MM site has no record if it was wiped or not. I hope they fix this. If not, presumably this won?t be an issue with the iPhone 3GS if the HW encryption has to merely delete a the encryption key. I doubt we could turn it off before that executes.
