    Mobile Recovery

    I just installed the mobile recovery on my X. Seems like a good idea.

    It does require the Verizon Wireless Backup Assistant to save your contacts before they are deleted in the event of lost phone.

    It is interesting that I can see my location on a map. A lot like SPOT device where you can track your route although I don' think this does tracking.

    It is kind of ironic though that the maps used are Bing (Microsoft) and not Google Maps. Although the irony is only on the Android phones. Any other brand would be eh<shrug> lol.

    Mobile recovery is free for those with TEC Total Equipment Coverage from Verizon.

    Wierd thing is the app on the phone is not secured at all. Anyone who "finds" your phone can open the app and turn off the gps locate or even uninstall it.

    I dont use verizon backup assitant since google already backs up the contacts to the cloud. I wonder what would happen if you used this ting to delete your contacts without backup assitant. Wouldnt the phone re-download them from google when you turn it back on?

    Backup assistant is not required for Android. Its not required for any smartphone, actually. Mobile recovery can be used with other smartphones which may not have the contacts backed up to the cloud like android phones do.

    A personal blackberry, for example, could be set up to pull email from any isp. The contacts, however, are not always backed up on a personal blackberry unless you set it up to back up or sync up.

    Mobile recovery just gives you a warning letting you know that the contacts are NOT backed up by mobile recovery so if you wipe the phone contacts, you will need to ensure you have a backup but they suggest you use backup assistant.

    You can use something like ES Security Manager to password protect the app or any other app.
