When phone is lost and somebody picks it up, it would first ask PIN<br>and have message in screen that says something like "If you don't know<br>PIN, give 1234". If user types 1234 then it presents 2 buttons:
<br>"Contact owner of phone" and "Use phone" (==I'm stealing this). If<br>user selects "Use phone", then it would present factory looking<br>interface with empty address book, etc.. and quietly contact owner
<br>anyway and tell current coordinates ;-) Idea is keep thief using phone<br>until police arrives and recovers it. If phone notices new SIM, it<br>would go directly to "I'm stolen" mode. Maybe run under Linux-VServer
<br><a href="http://www.linux-vserver.org/">http://www.linux-vserver.org/</a> in stolen mode.<br><br><br>With suitable arrangement remote ssh connection to phone should be<br>possible which would give nice control over stolen phone.
<br><br><br>There could also be a bluetooth headset and/or bluetooth watch. If it<br>loses contact to phone, phone would complain loudly and if bluetooth<br>gadget is enough smart it could complain too. This gadget could warn
<br>about low battery too.<br><br>--<br>Aloril <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>><br><br>_______________________________________________<br>OpenMoko community mailing list<br><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">
