Track Your Galaxy Note online with samsung server.


Since I am using this service from day one, but i have never read a word regarding this on XDA forum. so writing a guide who are not aware to this service.
Priorly with SGS i have tried, but was not available to my country(india), but this time with Note we are lucky.
To activate this service
First Go here
http://samsungdive.com
and register your account(free)
- Now on mobile go to setting-Location n security - Find My mobile
1.check SIM card change alert
2.click on alert msg recipient - Now login with credential, you have register on above mentioned samsung site. - and add recipient mobile number (your other number / family number) on which you will get notification, if SIM will changed.
3.check Remote control

Now when you visit samsungdive.com n login, you will see your register device there, (see Image above)
Click on your device.

You will see this


Now you can track your mobile. It have all function which available with many costly applications on market like
-tracking on map (to check location)
-Ring mobile (to find device in nearby location)
-Forward msgs
-call logs
-wipe out device etc

Hope it will be useful to G-Note user.

Sounds great! I will have to check this out. I have been using SeekDroid since it came out, but this might be a more fool proof way, since I have had issues with Seekdroid while running practice tests. Thanks!

Doesn't seem to work in the US. Saying my ZIP is not enough digits and I don't see the setting on the phone menu to "find my mobile."

Edit: nevermind, deleted the optional address information. Still not working yet...added +10000000000 (0's are my phone number) since I'm in the US....

Edit 2: I previously had a SGSII on my Samsung account. Perhaps it's trying to locate that device (hehe, the new owner is probably panicking).

How can I delete that device and add my Note?

Edit 3: Nevermind, figured out how to add the Note here:

https://v2.samsungdive.com/help/guideRemoteControls.do

Doesn't say how to delete a device I no longer own though....

The FAQ says to delete (disable) the feature on your phone before selling it.

I factory reset it so it had to be disabled as the phone re-formatted.

Oh well. Works on my Note but I hope I don't wipe some guy's SGSII that I sold it to lol.
