    Download Androidlost from play.google.com

    If you're phone hasn't been wiped already then it will automatically download on your phone, and go to the androidlost website from where you can activate the GPS and do lots of other stuff
    I have just installed that and send the remote text. The *******s have had it off since, although I am sure it loads of battery left. I had a dotted security thing but it was just in the shape of a Z so no problems there!

    Weird thing is when I first lost it and I tried to ring, it would stay silent for a very long time until saying "you have reached the voicemail". Now it goes straight to it!

    So I am hoping that it will work, I presume it will still work without the sim in. I dont know if they have wiped it.

    Google have blocked me from buying on the play store due to 'being a minor' :rolleyes:

    The worst part is at first they just said I need to send identity confirmation, so I sent them a copy of my driving license and bill at my address as requested and THEN they said they've had an 'expert' review my evidence and decide I'm a minor.. Wtf

    Minors are 21 in the US for drinking, so that may be something to do with that.

    Make sure you report it as stolen/ missing and get the SIM blocked ASAP. I lost my phone but I didn't report it until a few days later but in that time they'd rung up £600 of international calls which I was liable for :/

    Yeah I reported it stolen today and t-mobile have also blacklisted the phone. I presume this means the phone is useless now even if they change the sim etc.
    Its irritating cause they either turned it off straight away and have left it off or switched the sim immediately. No calls etc have been made and I cant connect any of my remoteaccess apps to it.

    My parents & sister have offered to buy me a Galaxy S3/One X for my 21st Birthday. Should I get it? I'm seriously tempted, but I just got my S2 a year ago...

    Maybe you'd enjoy a tablet more in addition to your S2 instead of an upgrade? You could get a really nice tablet for the same price as an SIII

    AFAIK no UK phones currently are capable of using anything above 3.5G.

    Not really a fan of tablets tbh, I just don't see the point in them.

    I thought I'd install S Voice on my S2 just to see how bad it really is. Had to get rid of the voice command app, S voice app installed without a problem. The app crashes as soon as you open it :lol: It really is awful.

    I hope this patent war gets bigger and bigger.

    It needs to so that the patent office can be scrapped as it is and reformed. It's very broken at the moment.

    I mean why do apple get to have a monopoly on rectangles with rounded corners?!
