I've found many software that supposed to help in case your phone get lost or stolen.
Some were expensive, some were free, but none fitted perfectly to what I was really expecting. So I've made my own.
The closest in terms of functionnalities (and price) is Remote Tracker, but it requires .NET 3.5 which is not installed on my WM6.5 phone, and honestly, it's a very fat dependency.
The idea is that you install this software (no CAB, simply copy the 2 files on your phone), and run it once to set up the configuration. Then forget it.
In the case the phone is stolen, the software will send you a SMS with the thief's phone number, it's GPS position, the CellID in case the GPS pos is not available.
You'll then be able to act on your phone remotely by sending it some SMS (described in documentation).
The features that makes this software unique are:
- It's possible to destroy all your personal data remotely (call log history, contact, emails, SMS, calendar, owner info, storage card) -> help social engineering to get back your phone.
- It's possible to make the phone send you back the call history and the sim contacts.
- Slut mode (see the documentation for details).
- WOULDYOUSHUTUP mode (where the phone is very very nasty).
- All other tracking software features...
This software is open C++ source (GPLv3), small (75ko with no dependencies), and free.
You'll find it at http://dsmp.sf.net (documentation on that page)
Or the direct link is attached.
Beta tester welcome (I've tested all functions already, but, you know what software development is....)
Some remarks for those who don't read threads:
- whereRU: requires you to have at least a .wav file in your windows ring folder. I thought all phone had at least one .wav based ring. In 64kb, I haven't included a MP3/AAC/MP4 player.
- owner: This is what I said in my first posts. Microsoft didn't feel it was interesting to document how to retrieve owner info. So, almost all manufacturer have made there own proprietary stuff. I've a HTC phone, so I've checked the code work for HTC. If you have more information about where your phone store its owner information in registry, I can add your phone support.
- contact: On the main config dialog, in the combo box where you can enter the phone number to contact, you'll have a phone number list. It's the same list as returned in the "contact" command. So if you don't have such list in the config dialog, then this means that either you don't have any contact on your SIM card, or it's not working (in that case PM me).
