KB112, yes, it is a hassle. You need to do it yourself. No point if this was commercially available.

Some guide for those who would like to make their own hidding unit. Just be precise in the cutting.

As much as I agree, different circumstances would dictate whether or not you could do that, such as your kids being with you or your just not the type of person that likes confrontation. I would recommend downloading cerberus or something of that nature to catch and hold the person responsible that's doing this. I couldnt see shooting somebody over a phone, but all in all, you have to be able to protect yourself.

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. What Allen was saying was to leave his expensive phone in his backpack, and use a cheaper phone remotely connected to his Note 2. He would be using his cheaper phone as a viewer only. In sense giving the thief the idea that he doesn't have anything worth stealing. Smart!!
One flaw though, both phones would need a active data plan. Unless there is a way to tether the phones through WiFi. Bluetooth wouldn't provide sufficient bandwidth.

Re: The Hidden Note II
g2tegg, I've done something like this. I forgot the app name. My Note was tethered via hotspot of my HTC Chacha which is out. The main problem is battery drain for the Chacha which I resolved with a small 5500mAh portable power bank.

It took forever to remote my Note. It didn't show me exactly how my Note's UI, just the status and sms reading. You need to pay for the sms sending ability.

To keep everything simple, I put my main line into the Chacha as my main com device for messages, calls & unlimited data hotspot for my Note. I put in my old really not-so-used sim into the Note and used my old SE LiveView smartwatch to read, send pre-typed messages, see who's calling, get alerts and control music.

I know it reduces the Note's usability during the commuting/traveling period. But at least the chances of it being snatched or being held up for it is reduced. I fully use my Note at home and at work or at cafés/restaurants.

Anyone know of any app that remotes the Note and exactly shows you the UI like apps that remote controls your desktop PCs on your Android?

Re: The Hidden Note II
I never use my phone in places night or day trains ect. I know I can get robbed and will only take it out for a quick sec and hurry to put it back in my pocket or purse. I've only really started doing it when I got the note 2. Its bag and attracts attention I don't need.

Yes, Lia, a better measure is to get a cheaper device that no one would bother as the thing you take out. You can tether your Note II via hotspot when needed.

I worry about my wife with my first Gen Note. I'll be giving her a Galaxy Mini just for safety. Constructing her one of my hiding planners as well.
