Love the app, would love to upgrade back to premium but I don't see that you accept PayPal.
"So for that reason, I'm out." as the sharks would say :p Stuck with Free version unfortunately :(

It's great and all, but there are two annoyances. First being the ongoing notification keeps turning back on and the second one is trying to offer me 30-day trial for pro every time I open the app. Same for you guys?

I just decided to try the 30 day trial. Once I did that it went away. Not sure if there's another way around it. So far, it's pretty sweet.

As a technician for Sprint, Lookout has caused nothing but headaches for us. It may "protect" the phone, but more often than not, it does more damage than it helps. Such as locking up the phone, draining battery, causing the GPS to heat up, etc.

There is also a lot of speculation concerning impropriety in Lookout's handling of user's personal information taken from their devices.

First....thanks xda forums and developers. Recently rooted and have been playing with various ROMs. Love what the community has done...just hope I find one that fits my needs and I stick with it...have been donating where has seen fit.

To the subject

Software sounds good, I have read that I should install tracking software such as this into the system files to further prevent a thief's un-installation. Used root explorer, copied apk to system/app. Changed privilege to r/o, was not able to find file to uninstall afterward....however, force closed on me.

Any help is appreciated.

Does this software also allow you to turn on your GPS?

Thanks again!

Couldn't this program take what info from your phone they want? If so, why are people using this?

I mentioned in an earlier post that Lookout may be doing shady things with info taken from your device. Read their terms and conditions VERY carefully and you'll see what I mean.

but doesnt sprint have headaches all the time just because of the fact they are sprint? lol j/k

i havent seen anything "bad" with this application yet, as far as the "collecting user data" IF you think they might be doing shading things, then dont allow them to take the "user data feed back" i declined it as well as i do with all apps, even googles lol.
