    Hi there all,

    I want to know if some of you guys know about any Cydia Package that prevents my iPhone from being erased with iTunes in case someone steals it.

    I know there are a lot of packages out there that helps track your iPhone, but if the thief is smart enough, he/she will turn of the iPhone and later on, turn it ON just to erase it.


    Please any suggestions I will really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Personally, I'm not familiar with any app such as you seek. A thief need only change the SIM and they have an iPhone, almost untraceable...

    im sorry but i believe i am missing the benefit to this? i get wanting to wipe your data by why would you want it to be unwipeable? its not like the thief is going to be thwarted and return your device. hell most likely just toss it if this worked.

    Agreed. What you're asking for makes no sense. You should want to wipe it immediately if it's lost or stolen and have a backup available just in case you ever recover it.

    now what would make sense is if you put a tracker on it and wanted to make it unwipeable so you can continue to track the phone...but other than that this seems quite pointless except he gets all your info and apps and what not.

    yea but just like IGOSLO said all u need to do is remove sim or put on airplane mode and they can make it untrackable it would be nice if you could enable a way to track it and not allow it to go into airplane mode.

    If the iPhone is wiped out, it will be more easily for the thief to use it for him, I want him to get the iPhone useless (NOT ERASABLE, so in the mean while I can track it down with Cylay and even lock the shut down).

    I really don't care about the data I have, no one will care when you have a $600 phone on your hands. What you will want to do is ERASE IT SO YOU CAN SELL IT OR USE IT.

    I pretty do much with the 4 digit Lock Code because it would be difficult to make the combination (or at least time consuming).

    No sense at all.

    You put a tracker like Cylay, fine. You lost your iPhone, you look for a laptop to track it down.

    You start to track it down, OK you get its location.

    In the meanwhile, I (the thief) just plug it in my laptop, open iTunes, Click Restore and Ta Daaa!!! New iPhone for me! Without any junk and UNTRACEABLE!!!

    You get to the point, "the thief will NOT return your device" so lest make it impossible to be ERASE so if I don't get my phone, HE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE IT as he cannot erase it.

    If he continues to try to erase it I will be ABLE TO TRACK IT DOWN as it will be turned ON, 4 Digit Locked in LockScreen and with Cylay running.

    Obviously all you have on your phone is a couple of Britney Spears CDs and pictures of your miniature poodle. Me- my data is far more valuable than the phone. I want my data wiped immediately if not sooner if my phone goes missing.
