    Default tracking lost iphone 4

    is there a way to track a lost iphone4 using a website to
    track the phone if it is lost, stolen and also remotely

    lock the phone from making outgoing calls, sending messages, delete sensitive information, send the user a message to return the phone

    can all these be done even if the iphone is turned off or does the phone need to be turned on to track the phone

    They should really include a piece of paper on top of the iphone when you open up the box detailing how to do this and how important it is. Its an awesome and important feature that needs to get more attention. I had no clue what it was till I snooped around online about what a mobileme account could do.

    Yeah when I first heard about findmyi I thought it was only available if you had another iOS device such as an iPod, iPad, or even another iPhone. It wasn't until much later that I discovered you could access it on the web. I set it up as soon as I discovered that!

    I hear you can do this with Google Latitude too. You just need to have a 'safe' buddy and then you will always have someone who can find your phone.

    DragonZakura, either you're a spammer or you've been duped. Omegaspy isn't an iPhone app.

    I don't think I'm wrong
    . In their home page, they said omegaspy is app for iPhone 3G/3GS/4G. And if you read the installation instructions on the page: omegaspy.com/view/userguide.aspx . They guide us how to install omegaspy on iPhone via Cydia. I don't think spy on someone else is good but in this case we use this to spy our own and when my iPhone is lost or stolen I can know where it is and what the thief do in my iPhone, this will help me to find out the thief and get back my iPhone.I expect a response from you.
    thanks

    Show me where it is in iTunes. It's not there. It's not an iPhone app. At most it's a web app, which renders it useless as a tracker.

    I did a quick search. It appears to be a shady app (as in not found through iTunes) for jailbroken phones.

    Now we can install Omegaspy via cydia, and we can not say that all app from Cydia are not app for iPhone, right?.

    Cydia apps are for iPhone. They're just not for all iPhones. And chances are they may never be for the new iPhones.

    Cydia is upgraded regularly so I think that's not a problem. One a new iPhone coming up, just a coupe days later it's jailbroken and it means we have a new version Cydia.

    Seems to me we waited like 4 months with the iPhone 4 for an untethered jailbreak, so don't get your hopes up. Remember, there's a hardware component to deal with, as well.

    Right now iOS 5 has been jailbroken, but no plans for an untethered jailbreak, and no idea if it will work on the next gen hardware, or as Tim mentioned, how OTA updates will effect that.
