Hi,

Is there any paid/free apps that can remotely wipe out phone and track phone if lost or stolen that do not require monthly payment?

Samsung Infuse 4G (AT&T)

Thanks

Seekdroid. I'm sure there are others but that's what I use.

I use lookout security. it can remote wipe. It has a virus scanner and it's free. You can log onto the website and track your phone via GPS, or make it scream to help you find it in your couch.

As an alternative, if your phone is lost, you can use "Plan B" to find it and there's another one by Lookout which will wipe it.

Don't I need to pay a monthly fee for $2.99 to have the remote wipe feature turn on?

In Market, the only LookOut i saw was the one without a remote wipe. As i mention, Lookout require a monthly fee in order to be able to wipe data.

Just wondering, y they have to charge a monthly fee just to remotely wipe? it's not like if the phone was lost/stole and the finder do a factory reset and the Lookout still able to track the phone. or can remote wipe the data even the phone was factory reset. if that the case YES i would willing to pay a monthly fee so the finder can never use the phone. Y? because i will constantly wiping the phone even. But then it useless to pay monthly if it cant.
