By far Cerberus the best anti-theft app out there. The app will survived even if after hard reset!

Cerebrus is not that easy to use app and also I think runs always in background same like Avast. Please correct me as I have not used Cerebrus.

Another thing... Have anyone actually got back their mobile phone after it is stolen?? just curious to know, and I am sure most of the users are also curious

I think if you told UK police that you know where your stolen phone was and you track it down. I thing they just laugh. And cerberus does a lot more than find your phone. I use it on my sons phone so i see where he is and send a message with alarm ringing so hes got to answer it with a picture when he does!

The best anti-theft barrier is yourself, don't leave your phone unattended, when walking in public try and avoid large groups of people, always have a firm grip on your phone

Thinking like a villain
The best way to prevent crime is to figure out how crime happens, and then taking measures to prevent it from happening.

So, if I were to steal a phone, lets say an S 5 for example, as I was walking away from the scene of the crime, I would either turn the phone off, or take the back off and remove the battery. Then I would remove the SIM card, or whatever the phone has. Replace battery, leave phone off.

Create new ebay acct with false info, sell, delete account as soon as money is deposited, and collect money. Let the buyer deal.

So, how can we prevent this?

Glue the back of your case on, and never go in public.
