      Here is my dilemma.

      I pretend my phone is lost/stolen/ect. So after Cylay is all setup and working I set my phone off to the side. I pull out my wife's phone and send the lost,password command to my phone. I get the normal response, then another response saying that the phone was successfully backed up to the server. OK cool. Now do a startlocate,password command and guess what...it never shows up in the map on the control panel on the site...so after waiting and waiting I finally say wtf...I go look at my phone and guess what is on the screen after i unlock it. A popup requiring me to either allow or disallow com.ifonetec.cylay to utilize location based services. i accepted figured maybe its a one time thing. nope. everytime i reboot the phone once locating is activated the allow button has to be pressed for it to send its location to the cylay server. so here is my prediciment. i paid $20 for a app to locate my phone in the event it gets lost or stolen yet it will do me know good, because once i go to attempt to locate it it will pop up a message to allow location based services on my iphone...which again is lost or stolen. great concept, just has to uh work. heres to hoping they can get this fixed or refund my money.

      no i only have to click allow once on my phone?
      open maps and u shud get a pop up
      click allow

      Tried that. I still get the popup to allow Cylay randomly all the time. Not sure what the deal is.


      OK Got it working. I uninstalled Cylay and deleted all the logs, settings files, ect from the library on the phone. Reset the phone and reinstalled the VIP version in Cydia.

      I think the issue had something to do with installing the free version then uninstalling it and installing the VIP version. Everything seems to be working fine now and I am able to locate the phone perfect.

      This is one kickass app!

      Im seriously considering buying the vip version since trying this app out. Just one nagging question bothering me that i cant seem to figure out: Do i HAVE to be connected to Edge/3G for this app to work?

      I realise that an internet connection would be required to back data up remotely, but i wasnt sure if its necessary for the locating feature. (i currently dont have a permanent internet connection)

      Dont buy this app! I downloaded the trial version and it was ok. Didn't really test it to a great extent but i thought in general it functioned ok. The customer service was great aswell, replying to me usually the same day with any technical queries.

      I then bought the app! Boy, what a mistake. Hardly any of the VIP features work, and the ones that do, don't work properly. Everything is translated badly and the worst thing is....

      iFontec haven't replied to a single email i've sent since registering!

      What a waste of 20 dollars.
