True but  most cellphone get lost mostly on the bus, metro, restaurants,etc. Misplacing the phone home is not as dramatic as losing it in a public place. Looking for it with your laptop at home maybe the solution but is it most viable for the metro or the restaurant or any public places ?What i don't like is the idea that a must pay to find my lost phone. Sure it's better to pay a small amount and recover your phone but i don't find the idea practical.----- Original Message -----From: Aaron Coats <aaron at>Date: Wednesday, February 28, 2007 2:38 pmSubject: Re: Itch3: Anti-lost/theft protectionTo: community at> Once the phone goes into "Stolen Mode" the Bluetooth radio could > be  > turned on continuously.
