Bad Support The recent update is reported as malicious by Norton Mobile Security. Reported this to the developer who just shrugged it off and told me to stop whinging! I Previously gave a 5 star rating but now I’m a little concerned to say the least. I’m uninstalling and will never recommend this app again due to the careless attitude of the developer that just can’t take criticism.
A Google User on Oct 28, 2013
I can accept criticism but not false accusation !
You never contacted us to ask what or why, you just spread the false accusations of Norton.
I just worked another 2 months to offer you more ways to recover your stolen phone, and this is what I get in return.
Continue mocking developers work, and you will end up having only fart apps in Play store, as this is why devs abandon their projects !
P.S. I did write an to Norton and they did not reply…still waiting, but I guess I will solve this in a court of law
Unfuctional.The UI design is stylish but the help seems to be translated from another language its doesn’t make much sense for example send number that receives (???). Here are my finding utilizing the software so far: *the application doesn’t have a wizard to guide you thought the steps. *the setup process is cumbersome *****now the developer wants me to remove my comment if I don’t do it he won’t refund my money, classic case of extortion..
Jerry Nunez on Oct 13, 2013
If the setup wizard in which you choose the device password and create an on line account is to hard for you to understand, maybe there is a problem with the English language you learned in Puerto Rico. The 10.000 users from US, did not have any problem understand the setup.
There is no such string in the app as “send number that receives” – are you sure you did not try another app ?
I did not extort you asking to remove your comment, but I don’t see any reason why my app would be downgraded or poisoned with your anger, since you did refused our help and wanted only to hurt the image of it!
Locked me out of my own phone had to do a factory reset middle of the night Lovely!!!! If you want confusion while setting up an app, this is the app for you. Had it on my old phone. Set this up last night on my new phone. So many steps that in the middle of the night I realized I could not get into my own phone. I was locked out and no matter how many times I sent a password change it did not matter. Had to do a factory reset. Thanks Phone Locator Pro! You made my night!!.
Janet DelTufo on Sep 10, 2013
You have set the password for the device and you have been warned to write it down, after doing so.
You can change it from your on line account, in case you forget it.
Even if I gave you simple instructions to log into your account and send a new password, you still failed to follow my instructions
You forgot to mention that you did a factory reset, because you set the phone to wipe everything after 5 failed attempts, and failing to do so, the phone was wiped to factory settings. So you where not forced to to a factory reset, but you failed to insert the password correctly 5 times !!!
Joke Cant even get on the site cause google wont take the same password i bought this app with.funny how its easy to pay for something.
Case Colcord on Mar 21, 2013
Imagine how easy it was if you contacted us, instead of rating and reviewing the app like this.
There are more than 45.000 users and you are the only one having problems with your password. Isn’t that strange ? You can check your on line password inside the app main screen -> just press the right arrow button.
Bugado? No inicio tava indo tudo bem. Agora quando erra a senha da tela bloqueada, ele nao tira mais foto e manda pro email… ja tentei de tudo e nada de resolver isso. Como deu esse bug, nao sei ainda se o resto ta funcionando normal. Testarei e depois retorno pra dizer.
Tamara Sil on Mar 19, 2013
Estamos sempre aqui para ajudar, por favor contacte-nos, em vez de votar.
O problema no seu caso, é que você definir a senha para o dispositivo, em locais diferentes deste app.
Por favor, abra o aplicativo PhoneLocator, pressione Segurança, desativar admin, administrador habilitar novamente, escolha o modo de bloqueio e defina a senha.
Agora PhoneLocator está no controle, e ele vai saber quando uma senha errada foi inserido, e será capaz de tirar a foto.
To many bugs to be useful! I’ve had it on my phone since around November and it’s always trying to locate itself without me asking it to. I’ve contacted the creators thinking they’d be able to fix it. After a few months of my phone going off in church, movies, dates, sleep, and other inopportune moments I’ve had to forfeit my money and uninstall this app…:( don’t waste your money.
Sweet C Bloom on Mar 14, 2013
We did not receive any email from you, mentioning your problem, as we would help. We are always here for our users, and we reply to every single email we receive
One cause of your location trigger, might be that you set it to do so, on failed attempt to unlock the device
Another cause might be that you triggered this service with locations based on phone movement (if you set more than one message in PL/Locator), the app will send the location, only if the phone is moving.
Yet another cause might be, is that your locate keyword, is a common word, found in daily conversations.
Since PhoneLocator Pro find that keyword, even if it is part of another word, or part of a conversation, this might have triggered the location, when you received SMS messages from your friends.
Since PhoneLocator Pro hides the messages (if they contain a recognized keyword), you did not know that you received an SMS. This can be disabled in PL/Application.
I am working on this app fro more than 3 years now. I am testing everything – every day.
Please trust me that there is no such bug.
Even if we contacted the user on email and on Google +, it never responded ! This and the fact that it lied that she contacted us to solve the problem (which it didn’t), makes me thing that she wanted only to hurt someone, and not to solve her problems.

El problema es que el usuario no podía recordar el usuario y la contraseña de su cuenta en línea. Dejando de lado el hecho de que acaba de configurar eso, él no pidió ayuda ni trató de buscar en la página de preguntas frecuentes: http://phonelocatorpro.com/faq/spanish-faq/ (escrito en su idioma).
Se puso en contacto conmigo, sin embargo, para preguntar cómo eliminar la aplicación (ya que la aplicación nt pueden ser removidos en la forma estándar, ya que cuenta con una protección de desinstalación. Esta información estaba también en el FAQ y en la página de ayuda de la aplicación.
Me las arreglé para calmar el usuario, explicar dónde se puede obtener el usuario y contraseña y pedirle que le dan la oportunidad de la aplicación.
¿Por qué tenemos que seguir con esto? ¿Por qué el usuario puede comentar y nosotros no? ¿Por qué Google no puede verificar y aproove estos comentarios? No es buena idea revisar la aplicación, pero no para votar, por la falta de su experiencia, la rabia o la frustración!
Spammed my mom I have this set up to send texts to my mom’s cell. I accidentally unlocked my Evo lte wrong on the first attempt. Fine. No biggie. Retry. But when I unlocked it successfully, there was no, I found my phone! dialogue box so it’s been spamming my mom every time I make a call. UPDATE: Uninstalled to fix the problem. Developer is too sensitive about comments made here so while this is excellent software I didn’t like the email I received. 2 stars off for that.
Tiffany White on Mar 5, 2013
Nobody has spammed your mother. That is a feature that you enabled. The text messages where sent because you set it to do this on SIM change. I understand that you don’t have any idea what are you doing, but to blame others for your mistake is not the way to solve your problems. Sure I am mad about the comment you made. You wouldn’t be if someone would blame you for something it is not your fault ? Even if I explained you what you have done wrong, you felt that you should vote like you did. Well find yourself another app that can read your mind…and not spam your mother
Una mala app He probado tres apps y esta es la más cara y con muy baja calidad. La ubicación es pesima, tengo q poner mi correo y contraseña real si no, no manda mis estados de llamadas, la captura de fotos es cero discreta y de mala calidad. Desinslada.

La próxima vez, trate de comprar una aplicación que tiene el desarrollador disponible y venir a su casa para hacer la configuración para usted. Usted no recibió los mensajes de correo electrónico, porque no configuró el correo electrónico del remitente o receptor correctamente.
La precisión del GPS no viene dada por la aplicación, pero por el chip GPS en el teléfono. Una aplicación sólo está pidiendo posición, y responde el chip GPS.
La precisión del GPS se ve influida por muchos factores como: el clima, el entorno (treees altas o edificios altos alrededor puede tener una influencia negativa de la precisión). Edificios de metal alrededor de su área también pueden tener un impacto avery grande.
Hemos llevado a cabo una serie de pruebas durante un período de 6 meses, en diferentes partes del mundo, y los resultados donde más satisfactorios. Constantemente obtener una precisión de 15-50 metros en el interior de los edificios y fuera de 2-15.
I9250Два раза сняли деньги, за такое воровство нахрен такую программу!
A Google User on Feb 9, 2013
Вы тот, который купил приложение 2 раза. Мы не можем взимать плату. У нас нет контроля над покупками. Так как мы не знаем, кто вы есть, мы не можем дать Вам деньги за покупку. Разве она когда-либо пересек свой ум, чтобы связаться с нами и попросить вернуть, потому что вы приобрели два раза? Нет – я думаю, вы не думали об этом.
SCAMMED INTO DOUBLE PURCHASE I own 2 phones and expected to install on both. However was forced to purchase a second because my son uses the second. NOT AT ALL HAPPY…Before I purchase I read one guy used on 5 of his phones on one account. But after I installed on both I get jacked so buyer beware if you own more than one phone.
Chet Baldridge on Feb 4, 2013
Below is the conversation with this liar:
Message sent to us: I have Two phones both accounts are listed under my name. First is a Boost mobile account name (chet) works fine, Second phone Virgin mobile account (chetb) stopped allowing login. Please correct this or tell me how to combine accounts. Thanks Chet
We replied: You can create only one account with one purchase, but you can insert as many phones you like in that account, as long as all the phones share the same email account as primary email.
The primary email is the first email inserted in a phone, when the phone is first setup.
To insert a second phone into an already created account, run the setup wizard on the second phone and choose the same user and password used on the first phone. You will have to choose which phone you want to control,after logging in.
His reply: Wow I guess I will purchase another licence because my son uses the other on most days but will give a low rating on BOTH because of it.
We replied:To give us a low rate for what ?
Cause you can add as many phones as you want in one account ?
Cause I worked 3 years for an app that gives you a life time service for 4 euro ?
Gjorde min telefon obrukbar! Jag skulle avinstallera denna app, men då stänger appen av tillgången till telefonen.. Måste kanske lämna in den nu.. Skit program!
A Google User on Sunday, December 2, 2012
Om du inte känner till programmet och inte be om hjälp, betyder inte att appen är skit. Troligen du ombeds administratörslösenordet (efter att du har låst din telefon). Det är inte fel av denna app eller mina som utvecklare, om du glömmer lösenord du anger, och mer än detta aldrig söka lösningar eller be om hjälp. Det finns en mycket enkel lösning på detta situationer i skiva du glömmer administratörslösenordet – bara logga in i Web App och ändra ditt lösenord enhetens admin.
Låt mig säga att “skit” är hur du tänker och handlar!
Grave Bug No sé si sea error mío, y aunque así fuera, la app debería de prevenir sobre eso pero… cuando pones la app con “On Demand Lock” y luego seleccionaes bloquear tu cel con desbloqueo tipo “Patter”, sencillamente Phone Locator Pro cambia automáticamente el teléfono a desbloqueo del tipo “deslizar”, es decir, sin nada de seguridad (al menos en un Samsung Galaxy SII). Creo que es un fallo grave, sea como sea, pues aunque elijamos ON DEMAND LOCK, si configuramos un Pattern en como modo de desbloqueo, Phone Locator Pro DEBERÍA respetar eso. He comprobado que es esta app la que ocasiona el problema, pues desactivándola no lo volví a tener. Ustedes deben arreglar eso.
Manuel on Tuesday, November 20
El error que usted está haciendo es establecer una contraseña para el dispositivo en PhoneLocator y sobrescriba la contraseña en la configuración de Android.
PhoneLocator pro reemplaza la configuración de Android y no debe tocar seettings Android para la configuración de seguridad, pero los puso en PL.
Si desea utilizar un patrón, basta con deshabilitar admin en la sección de Seguridad de PhoneLocator, active de nuevo administrador, elija siempre el modo de bloqueo y ajuste el patrón – eso es todo!
Le sugiero que se comunique con los desarrolladores de la aplicación, si usted tiene problemas y no votar un comentario como lo hizo, porque no tenemos forma de saber quién es usted, y explicar las cosas.
Problem App was working perfectly on my S3 until i got the jelly bean update, now if u fail unlock code 3 times. all it says is app could not be authenticated. fix please
t on Saturday, November 10, 2012
Wouldn’t be better if you checked with us ? This doesn’ sound strange to you ???
The app has no problem. Your app preferences files where not restorred or where cleared. Uninstall, install again from Play store and you will be good. Never restore the app with Titanium backup.
Good program but … Beware, the server online is frequently unavailable. I’m not sure if there are too many users trying to connect with the server online or what the issue is. If you are a small business using the online locator, you may not be able to utilize the online capability when you need it. Otherwise, the program itself is very good.
PDQ on Monday, October 29, 2012
The only times when the server was offline, was when we upgraded or doing maintenance, and the server was back in no more then 5-10 minutes.
This was not happening “constantly” as describe by you, but we are sorry for these times. We are constantly working to give you a beter app. and a better experience. New code is added and work is in progress for the next version.
It works fine but….I tested the app using another SIM mine and unfortunately it force close at first try and continue on several situations. Imagine the picture if you are the thief (LOL). I mean, when it suppose do the best job, it fail.
Antonio on Sunday, October 28, 2012
A cause to this might me that you install the app to sd card. Apps that execute tasks at startup, should be installed on the phone memory.
Another cause might be that you have a task killer or a conflict in your phone.
The app is used by more then 45.000 people and it is working fine for them. You did not contact us to solve the problem which is odd….
We also did not receive any errors in the developer console, whcih also leads us to think that you either lie, or the cause is not our app.
If you are a developer and you have a similar app in the app store, I suggest you to get back to work and catch us and stop this spam.

Limitato Funziona solo con il client sms di default, nn con SmsGo o HandCent Brutta cosa
Market on on Wednesday, October 24, 2012
La nostra applicazione funziona con SMS e GO Handcent. Non hai capito, anche se le istruzioni riportate sulla nostra pagina FAQ sono molto chiare. Queste applicazioni stanno bloccando altre applicazioni per ricevere i messaggi SMS. Devi solo disattivare questa cosa in queste applicazioni.
Like Insurance, Only need it when you lose phone I purchased and installed this app in July 2011 so of course I don’t remember anything about passwords, logins, etc. that I setup then. I misplaced my phone on Friday. Didn’t notice it until Saturday. Went on PhoneLocator site to locate phone. Can’t login. Don’t remember password or even if I have the right login name. Go to help and FAQ. Talks about Order Number which I retrieve and sent to PhoneLocator. Receive an email that my email address isn’t in their system. Puzzling but surely the order number should count. Nope. I copy the complete order information from Google and send it. After 24 hours no response. Luckily I got my phone back today, but not because of Phone Locator. It may be a great app but when I needed it I couldn’t use it. Now, I’ll take the blame for not keeping up with password. However, most sites give you a way of getting it easily. Since PhoneLocator doesn’t show my email then I’m sunk. Uninstalled and will look for another method. Message to PhoneLocator. Not being rude but the reason Google doesn’t allow you to respond to user complaints on their site like you have on your site is that it makes you appear defensive and unprofessional. Just saying.(
William on Aug 8, 2012
The web interface was added after you have purchase the app, with no extra cost for you. You did not bother to see what’s new (for over a year) and you did not created an account. Not our fault ! You had the option to track your phone by sending the commands in a text mesage to your phone. I guess you never new that too.
I did reply to your question first thing in the morning – at 6:30 my local time (after 2 hours from your inquiry). I did informed you that you never created an account. You never ask anymore questions. If lying makes you feel better…..

Mr Oliver replied: No, that’s the only email address I have or would have used. This is what’s on my gmail account.
Phonelocator Pro Installerade programmet. Fixade lösenord enligt instruktionen. Gick till där alla program är och klickade på appen. Skärmen blev då svart och det kom upp en ruta där man skulle skriva in lösenordet. Gjorde det men inget hände. Testade flera gånger med samma resultat. Till sist var jag tvungen att göra en s.k “hård reste” för att komma in och använda mobilen. Jag har en HTC One X och som ni nog förstår så kan jag inte rekommendera programmet =(

Du gjorde installera denna administratörslösenordet som låser upp programmet och telefonen. Du kan också gjorde bekräfta att du kommer att minnas detta lösenord efter att detta lösenord!
Trots det kan du har ändrat lösenordet från online-gränssnittet, men jag antar att det är lättare för hårt återställa telefonen sedan läsa FAQ och sidorna Hjälp på vår webbplats, eller bara kontakta oss för hjälp )))

Pls fix Pls fix the location. Its not accurate =(
Omar on Monday, July 30, 2012
The applications are asking the location to be acquired by the GPS sensor in your phone. The GPS sensor is responsible for acquiring the position. You can test that by downloading the free app GPS Test, and you will see that you will get the same accuracy and position as in our app
The position is influenced by many factors like weather (cloudy/snowy/rainy), surrounding buildings (tall buildings), materials of the surrounding buildings (steel/metal in general deviate the waves) – will have a negative impact on how well a GPS chip can communicate with the satellites .
The quality of the GPS chips also has a very big impact on how well it can communicate with the GPS satellites . The newer the phone and the more expensive, the better the GPS chip will be.
Asking for many positions (the more the device is communicating with the satellites ) will improve the accuracy of the position.
We conducted a series of test for a period of 6 months, in different parts of the world, and the results where more then satisfactory. We constantly get an accuracy of 15-50 meters inside the buildings and 2-15 outside.
Bad I,want a refund
on Monday, July 30, 2012
We did found the user, even if it didn’t provide a nickname and we offered our assistance. We did not received any response from him, so it is clear to us that the comment should be marked as spam. We don’t understand why other developers can not get back to work and provide a better app if they want to surpass us,and they do take this desperate measures.
Since this kind of behaviour is not allowed by Google, we did informed Google about Mr. Estanislado Ramires behaviour !
Galaxy S2/EVO 4G Great app, other than the occasional audio file that won’t play this is a great app, support responds in minutes not hours or days.

Refund I would like a refund
Jason on Tuesday, July 24, 2012
We did offer the assistance needed to understand some unclear things, and everything is running smooth now for him. We expect the user to change the comment, since the refund was not required anymore
GS2 to Slow.This app make the galaxy S2. Way to Slow. I try to uninstalled and it take for ever.
David on Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Our app does not run in the background and can not make your device slow. The operating system alerts our app when an SMS is received, and PL will check if it contains one of your keywords in a matter of milliseconds. After that the PL app closes itself. Same thing when a command from the web is sent, Google notifies our app with a push notification and our app interprets and executes the requested command. All the tasks executed by our app are services that are running on a separate memory thread (service) and cannot slow down the device.
As for the fact that you could not uninstall the app, it is well documented that you have to disable admin from the app security section and then uninstall the app. You can find that info on the main screen of your phone and on the Help page of our website
It works fine but…. This app crashed my gmail account when installed it for the first time. Right now I installed it again and works fine. Take care if you are trying to use it for the first time.
Antonio on Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Every Android app runs in sand box. It can not affect other apps. It can not make other app crash !
Lots of room for improvement. Everything works perfectly with WiFi on, however nothing works with 3G, only the locator, even then it’s many miles out. It kind of defeats the purpose of this app as a constant connection to WiFi is not possible.
Vanessa on Friday, June 8, 2012
The application works perfectly on WiFi and 3G (and even without WiFi and 3G). PhoneLocator Pro is a true security app and we like to think that we have taken in consideration all the possible situation. There is no way that the app would have problems working on 3G.
I don’t understand this type of behavior: If you have problems, why don’t you stop for a minute and think that maybe you are doing something wrong ? Don’t you better take 2 minutes to write us an email, then jump to comment this kind of nonsenses ? We are here for our users and we solved even single problem that has been signaled to us, so please….write us an email and vote after that !
Pretty good app – 2 problems The first problem is minor. It would be nice to have a way to change your site password without going through the phone. The second problem can potentially effect the likelihood of you finding your phone or not. I don’t know if this program isn’t fully utilizing both cell tower and GPS in concert to get the phone’s location or what the deal is. But when this app is consistently up to 2-300 ft. off when indoors, other apps are able to hold a much tighter radius over several pollings, I’d say 30-100 ft. or so. Of course all apps’ accuracy will vary depending on quite a few variables in different situations, this one just seemed to be a bit further off. 200 ft. can easily be the difference in several houses in a subdivision. You don’t want to set off the audio alarm and alert the thief if you don’t even know that you’re going to be in the right area. That would just be telling them the phone is bugged and they need to do something about it before the owner gets luckier next time. I love the app other than that. Fix the location accuracy, and I will modify my review.
Ryan on Saturday, May 19, 2012
The password for your online account can not be changed for your security. You can however contact us and we will delete the account so you can create a new one.
If you rely on wifi positioning like you did, then you should not expect great accuracy. It is well know and documented. If your area doesn’t have wifi routers that are registered to send the position, then the position will be calculated/triangulated from far away routers, which can give you that low accuracy you get. The accuracy is not given by the app, but from the data collected by your wifi positioning chip.
Prise de photo de la tête du voleur impossible En effet, l’application prend un photo que du coté de la face arrière du téléphone. Il est impossible de paramétrer l’application pour prendre la photo du côté de la façade avant (côté écran tactile). Du coup, cette fonction proposée ne sert strictement à rien car on ne peut pas prendre de photos de la tête du voleur. Dommage

Not worth it. Get this is if you like you phone going into silent constantly and missing ur alarms. Plus that aside its overly complicated and force closes occasionally, just get seek Droid.
by David (December 28, 2011)
David – I know that you already feel the heat coming from us and you are afraid for your seekdroid application !!!
Just a small advice – If you are afraid of the competition, just get back to work and catch up with us.
Buggy; priority is features, not robustness App is quite buggy. For example, I’ve had lockups that required a reboot, and the “owner info” screen doesn’t come up until several seconds after entering an incorrect password. Often, this covers up a working, unlocked screen, and the click to dismiss the screen goes through to whatever widget is hidden underneath. The app author tells me there’s nothing that can be done about this, and you can’t even turn off the owner info screen as a workaround. The app’s author is extremely responsive, but that’s not a substitute for careful, correct work, especially in a security app. The focus seems to be more on adding features than robustness.
by Reid (December 17, 2011)
Reid man – your full of frustration !!!
Having the delay in showing the owner info screen is due to the fact that your device is full of crap running in the background. More then this you lie and say that I told you that nothing can be done with the owner info screen. You don’t even know the application, otherwise you would notice the switch in which you can turn of showing the owner info screen.
The fact that you are a developer and you choose to lie and not being faired, makes me think that you are a very frustrated person.
Permissions include contacts and it crashes daily Disappointing that they changed permissions to access your contacts so I uninstalled, granted it made me restore to factory default to get the buggy thing off since uninstall (even using their how-to guide) didn’t work. I had purchased the pro version to support them and then months later they wanted my contacts; that sucks.
by Clara (November 10, 2011)
The permission to read contacts is there because the calls log function from the web is giving you the names of the people called, together with the phone numbers.
If the application crashes, it might be because there are some conflicts – contact us and we will solve it together .
The main reason for which you purchase the application, was to secure your phone, and not to support us – if you would care about us, you would’ve contact us to ask for clarifications, prior to write this comment !!!!

The application “work” good my friend
It is working fine for 9.000 people, and they are satisfied with the way the app works and with the service we provide !!! You did not ask for help, or read the Help included in the app or on our site.
Judging by the way you express yourself, one thing is for sure: Your english “Don’t work” !!!

Seems a little buggy It does work, but I had some crashes with it. Ended up uninstalling and using seek droid which has a much better (web) interface. Phonelocator wants to email you messages when you are locating, but when your email goes to the phone, tends to get messy. Gets worse when you say ‘hide messages’. My infuse has 2.2 installed, which means pictures it takes are from rear camera. If I had 2.3, I bet I would like the photo option more. A pic of the floor doesn’t do much good.(
by Chris (October 11, 2011)
Our application does not crash!
If you think that a better solution is to rely on internet connectivity to find your phone, then I must tell you that you are lost if the thief changes your SIM with his, and he most probably doesn’t have a data plan – for you to track your phone. We have launched the web interface too, but as an alternative to the sms control. Check our main page for instructions.
When your email goes to the phone, tends to get messy – what is messy about an email informing you about what is going on in your phone ?????
“Gets worse when you say hide message” – it hides the messages received in your phone, if the SMS message contains a command for PhoneLocator.
Conclusion: you did not bother understanding, or asking for help – contact me and I will explain you every bit, if you don’t have time to read the comprehensive help available inside the application, or on this website.

Alarm starts randomly because your nearby word is a common word found in daily conversations: if you set the word to be “ring“, when you receive a text message with the text “I was ringing at your door”, PhoneLocator finds your defined word “ring” inside the received text message, and triggers the alarm. Solution: change your word to something uncommon like the default one “PLring”. Uninstall process is explained everywhere: inside the app/on Help section of this site/on the FAQ section of this site.
Cool … But It’s cool. But now I can’t uninstall.

Uninstall process is explained inside the application main help (on the main screen), and on this website.
Works perfectly. My only gripe is that I have seems like I can’t get around Go sms issue. It works when I have it Uninstalled.Can’t find a better sms replacement than go sms pro. It is very unfortunate at the cost of insuring lost and theft of the phone.

You can use this application with GoSms, if you enable other apps to receive the SMS’s in Settings of the GoSms application. The only gripe is that the message will still be displayed (and is not stealth as it is without GoSms), because GoSms is doing some unprofessional stuff to catch the received SMS’s. Normally an application has to register itself to the Android OS that wants to receive notifications when an SMS message its being received on the device. After that you set a priority of how early you want to be notified. PhoneLocator has a priority of 1000. I tried to set a priority of 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 in order to catch the message before GoSms does, and I was unsuccessful. I even tried to ask them about this, but I get no answer from them. So please don’t blame me for this. I think that you should put in balance what is more important: an SMS app or a security app.
Causes problems on DHD lock screen, sometimes bypasses it & ringer volume buttons alter volume while in pocket.
by Andy (September 10, 2011)
The problem in your case was the you unlock the device screen in your pocket (it is a common thing on DHD) and by moving you did enter unlock codes many times in a row. PhoneLocator was sensing a bad password, and it was taking pictures. The bug in our application was that starting the camera many times in a row, could cause the device to remain without memory. We fixed this by not allowing the camera to be started again, if the camera has not finished converting and sending the picture. Sorry for the bug!
Authentication failed after restoring from titanium back up
by Nishant (September 9, 2011)
Titanium backup doesn’t perform a correct backup ! Why is this our fault ????? Install the application, activate it, then set it up, and it will work. A proper backup solution is under development, and will be available soon, from within the application.
Locator funktionen fungerer ikke optimalt. Ellers super.

GPS position is influenced by many factors like weather, surroundings, GPS chip sensitivity of your device…
If your device position is in a building surrounded by other high buildings, the signal of the GPS satellites will be poor and positioning will take longer. If the weather is cloudy, rainy, snowy, again the GPS signal will be poor. Solution: set PhoneLocator to send you 2 or 3 messages with position, and the more is communicating with the satellites, the more precise the position will become.

Accurate and fast. However it’s not completely hidden, it does show up in my apps within the market and in the dowloaded apps under the settings. Should allow to rename app so it’s purpose can be disguised. Theft Aware allows this.
by John (August 28, 2011)
You can not hide an application from the installed apps in the Market, or from the installed apps in Settings of Android.We continuously working on this app, and continuously adding stuff that are useful for you. You will not encourage a developer to work harder by voting like you do. By the contrary, you will make him stop developing, because no matter what he does, he will always get bad votes and complaints for things that are wished by someone I perfectly understand bad votes for faults in the application, but I don’t understand this behavior when you want something that it is clearly not mentioned as a feature in the application description.
Great app but…. it doesnt respond when I sent keyword for show keywords and log. I’m sure that I typed it correctly other than that its great…
by reko (August 12, 2011)
The application has no function to show keywords, when you send a command.
The log function is not showing your past log, but it is starts sending the calls made or received from the phone when they will take place, after you send the log keyword.
Ne marche pas du tout je ne resoi auqu’un message pour me donner la position de mon tel volé ou quoi que ce soi
by Yannick (August 1, 2011)
Très probablement vous n’avez pas envoyé les bons mots! Les mots-clés de cette application sont sensibles à la casse!
Vous pouvez également avoir l’GoSms installé, ce qui bloque les autres applications de recevoir des messages SMS peuvent consulter la section FAQ pour obtenir des instructions.

Il tuo problema è che una delle tue parole, è una parola comune che si trova in messaggi ricevuti dai tuoi amici.
Slick app, but had to uninstall Wanted to like this app. With a rooted Gingerbread phone, the auto-enable GPS didn’t work, so it was never able to locate my phone. It would also disable the native screenlock (pattern or password) each time I reset it, so definitely had to uninstall. To be fair, I didn’t try to get this resolved with the developer, and it might work fine on other phones.
by John Vajda (July 17, 2011)
The auto-enable GPS works fine, you just have to follow the instruction to install the app as system app.
The app disables your pattern because an Administration application takes control of your phone, and you have to set your pattern in this application – this is normal behavior.
The problem with you, is that you did not bother to drop me an email asking for clarifications, but you did bother telling the world that you did not understand, or tried to read one line of help – cause if you would read the help files, you would’ve sorted out.
e possibile che proprio nn riesco a farlo funzionare????!!!!!

Lei non ha mandato la parola giusta – le parole maiuscole e minuscole: Esempio “PLlocator” non è la stessa cosa con “pllocator”
Perché non hai provato a contattare me? Mi hai aiutato con piacere! Il mio indirizzo email è scritto sul Android Market, e in due luoghi all’interno dell’applicazione.
Eccolo di nuovo: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have the Samsung Galaxy S2, after installing and setting up Phone Locator it started sending countless sms messages to the number I assigned about sim card replacement. It didn’t stop for a few days ,trying to set it up again did not help, It kept sending messages to the same number even though I changed it, on top of all that the phone started to shut down spontaneously. Had to uninstall, save yourself the trouble and money and don’t buy this app.

One of your keywords, was a common word found in daily conversations. PhoneLocator has interpreted your word (found in the text messages that you received) as a command for a function. The problem would be solved, if you did changed your keywords to something uncommon.

Doesn’t seem to work will have to buy a different app.
by DPLew (May 24, 2011)
You can buy as many apps you like, but you will not find one, that will tell you what, and how to do it. Read the help files included in the application, or on this website….ask the developer for help. Some of us (the developers) work hard for an application to which you rate after spending less then a minute with.
