What is Theft

What is Theft?

?Theft’ starts automatically as the phone is turned on, and then always keeps detecting whether the phone is turned off in a wrong way, or your SIM Card is changed. It also keeps checking messages arriving for an activation text you previously defined (See the "SMS text to attack" in Program Settings section). Then ?Theft’ will attack the thief in three ways:

  • With a permanent text on the screen saying that ?THIS MOBILE IS LOST OR STOLEN’ along with any other text you provide; such as your name and contact telephone number.
  • The phone will send messages to a list of recipients you created for ?Theft’ to inform you that the phone is locked (It will also inform you of the new SIM number if someone has changed your SIM Card.).
  • A very loud long siren will sound from the phone alerting people in the vicinity and disturbing the thief.

THE THIEF WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FORMAT THE PHONE AS FORMATTING REQUIRES A LOCKCODE (THAT YOU CAN CHANGE FROM THE PHONE SYSTEM SETTINGS) AND FOR THE THIEF TO DO THIS IT WILL TAKE SOMETIME AND THAT TIME WOULD BE THE ENOUGH TIME FOR 'THEFT' TO LAUNCH.

How will the thief be affected?

  • The thief changes the SIM; this requires powering off or rebooting the phone. Of course that will happen without the thief turning ?Theft’ off first as the thief does not know the code you used to ?Turn off? ?Theft’. The result will be that the next time the phone is powered on, ?Theft’ will enter attack mode; will show the display, will send messages to the phone numbers in the ?Recipients? list and will emit the warning alarm tone.
  • The thief changes the SIM; assuming you have set the ?Attack on SIM change? field to ?Yes?, the next time the phone is powered on ?Theft’ will detect that the SIM has been changed and will enter attack mode, and will carry out the same actions as above including sending the details of the new SIM card in the text message. Even if the thief subsequently re-inserts the original SIM, the attack will repeat when the phone is powered on and will continue to do so until the phone is "Unlocked" with the required code.
  • The thief does not change the SIM card and you send a text message from any other mobile phone to your phone containing text you provided in ?SMS text to attack? field.

There is only one way to turn the phone back to the normal mode; you must press ?Unlock? and then you must enter your valid ?Turnoff code? the same code that you provided to ?Theft’ in the ?Application? page of the ?Program settings? section.
