      Only iPhone 3G for lost phone tracking defeats the purpose for me. Sounds nice though. Just wish us 2G users could have some love

      Connect to WiFi and then locate by general location of the router? Sounds quite difficult with a lot of WiFi spots now locked from any bandwidth thief.

      If that was possible, there would haven been no need for iPhone 3G to have GPS built in. The cell triangulation is no where as near as accurate as the actual GPS feature as to why it why it would be almost impossible to have an accurate location as to where your device is located without the GPS.

      exactly. No 2G locate WTF? What if the thief turns the wifi on my 2G? Wifi will pin point the sob then. That's just bad marketing. A "2G coming soon" would be more effective. And what if the thief is familiar with iPhones, or even cylay, and just turns off the 3G radio?? What then yo?

      I just woke up and I'm cranky. Sorry

      Cylay will send SMS with thief's phone number to you ,also you can get his call history and sms log, you might recovery iPhone by your own way.

      Well SMS log and call history sound nice, but what about this wifi thing? It doesn't sound like it will work

      did anyone else notice it installed some app called mivtones as well? when i tried to remove just mvitones, it took out cylay with it. no offense, but i don't want two apps joined at the hip. if i wanted mivtones (which looks to be some service that sells you ringtones) then i'd get it. it's one thing to request that i also look at your other service, it's another to jam it into my iphone.

      just re-installed cylay and yep, you can see it installs mivtones as well. might as well be spyware. i'll take my chances having my iphone stolen.

      even worse removing just cylay still leaves mivtones installed!

      sorry, these guys are up to something fishy!

      LOL mivtones is a video ringtone app, but I agree, it shouldn't install that also

      mivtones is not spyware... and it doesn't try to sell you ring tones.. It is used for video tones.. try searching it. I already had mivtones so i didn't notice at all. But i promise it wont hurt ur phone i have bee using it forever. I guess just take your chances then, but don't be upset when ypur phone gets stolen and you cant find it.

      So... anyone tried it? It works? And what's the difference between having it for free and paying the 20 bucks per year? And what's the google server???
