Verizon Wireless Mobile Recovery: BlackBerry, Android and webOS

Have you ever misplaced or had your mobile phone stolen? Wouldn’t it be nice to know where your device is, even if you have put it down somewhere safe or hidden it in a draw somewhere and for the life of you just can’t remember where the phone is.

Well according to a report by Darren Murph at engadget.com, Verizon Wireless offers its Total Equipment Coverage program, which has now been extended with a free Mobile Recovery app for existing customers and is available for download now.

Once the app is active and providing the phone is on, you can track it to a location address, and you even get directions and a map of how to get there. Another option is being able to remotely lock the device and erase all your contacts.

You also get the option to use the Sound Alarm function, which helps find it even in vibrate or silent mode. What do you think of the new Mobile Recovery service and will you get it?

You might want to uninstall and then re-install the program. It probably has been updated since the first day it came out.

Got it on release day, using it since. I seem to have to restart my phone more often since installing it, but I can't be certain that this is the cause, as webOS 1.4.5 came along such a short time before it, and may be to blame. The alarm feature definitely works, though. ;^)
