    HAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA OMG you are too funny! E-mail ifonetec support?!?!?!?
    Possibly the funniest thing I've read all day. For the past two weeks I've been emailing ifonetec support with a problem that I've been having and for two weeks now I've been getting these mailer daemon return emails stating that the e-mail I sent was not delivered because the address "[email protected]" is not a valid email.

    Default two things
    first, i would agree that anyone who would steal or find an iphone most likely knows how to use one. Therefore this program would most likely be useless, plus if they know nothing about the phone and just wanted to sell it, the battey would die quickly leaving no time to find it.

    second, if you are installing a program that has a trial period, 10 days, 30 days etc, try changing the date on your phone to the year 2020 or some later date before you install. In some cases your trial wont end till 10 days after the fake date of install.

    I installed, restarted and tried testing on the cpanel. The map never changes and stays in the US although I am in Australia..... Cylar is functional on my phone according to the app but doesn't work with the web page.

    If you want to see iPhone location on the web, you have to report iPhone to lost status ( send sms with "lost,123456" or press Lost button on the cpanel), you will get confirmation sms. Send sms "locate,123456" to get iPhone location, you will get location sms and see it one the map.

    Default Find lost iPhone location (3G iPhone only)
    Just installed Cylay and it worked immediately...

    I just entered my brother's number coz I thought the SMS in case of theft should go to another number....and guess what?

    My bro got an SMS reporting my cell number was using his iPhone (hehe)

    Obviously if (God forbid) your iPhone gets stolen YOU immediately get a new SIM card with YOUR NUMBER and wait for the SMS's to start coming...

    My question is (I have also e-mailed ifonetec) HOW IS THE iPHONE 3G actually tracked? Obviously with 3G but what feedback do you get? I get no iPhone Location (map is always same in the US) in Home : iFoneTec Cylay even though I declared my phone as lost and sent locate,123456 message....

    Just wondering if ifonetec has another tracking method up their sleeve....or this is an active feature only after you buy? Also is the iPhone tracked wether or not the person who has your iphone uses GPS features? Would appreciate feedback on this...

    Apart from that I think it's a MUST HAVE application for all the time and effort iPhone lovers have put in this incredible device....and I think I'll buy regardless if my little question gets answered...

    Don't be fooled by rules,
    Don't be ruled by fools...

    If you want to test locate function,you have to do the following of steps:
    1. set iPhone to lost status. send sms with " lost,password" to iPhone.
    2. send sms with"locate,password" to get location .
    Cylay will get location and send it to Cylay server, if it is fail, Cylay still try to locating iPhone until it is successful.
    You'd better bring iPhone outside and locate it with google map, then go to Cylay web to check .
    The location will help you to get iPhone back.

    There is one real story owner recoveried his iPhone installed Cylay 1.0 ( fw 1.1.4), he just called the number which Cylay sent ,even if Cylay 1.0 had simple functions( report number and backup data).

    Hey ifonetec, I know this is way off topic but here is the email that I've been trying to send to [email protected] for the past month and a half that won't go through because apparently that email address is not valid. Maybe you can help.

    "I purchased the full version of MiVtones a few weeks ago, unfortanately my iphone was defectective and I had to bring it to the apple store to be swapped out for a new one. Now when I try to log into MiVtones it says that I can only have one device on my account. My new replacement iphone however is the only iphone I have. Can you please update my device id on your system so I can now use MiVtones with my new iPhone. Thanks in advance"

    Interesting idea. It would be awesome to hear someone actually use the features in a real-life theft situation.

    What is going on with your customer support email addresses? I tried sending that address an email also and I get the same return email back stating that the email address I'm trying to send to is not valid. Here, I'll quote the message in the return e-mail

    "The original message was received at Tue, 21 Oct 2008 22:21:06 -0400 (EDT)
    from root@localhost


    *** ATTENTION ***

    Your e-mail is being returned to you because there was a problem with its
    delivery. The address which was undeliverable is listed in the section
    labeled: "----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----".

    The reason your mail is being returned to you is listed in the section
    labeled: "----- Transcript of Session Follows -----".

    The line beginning with "<<<" describes the specific reason your e-mail could
    not be delivered. The next line contains a second error message which is a
    general translation for other e-mail servers.

    Please direct further questions regarding this message to the e-mail
    administrator or Postmaster at that destination.

    --AOL Postmaster



    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----

    ----- Transcript of session follows -----
    451 [email protected]>... ifonetec.com: Name server timeout

    This is F*ckin rediculous man.

    Dizz,
    Your email was rejected since it was in the blacklist of gmail server, ifonetc mail sever is based on gmail, so change your email to send,or go to ifonetec.com ,send your request through online form.

    Cylay read iPhone location data ,send it to Cylay server and sms.so the problem is gps location error.
    To test,you'd better bring iPhone outdoor and locate it with google map, then locate it with Cylay again.

    OK So I sent another e-mail yet again. This time I used my Gmail account. Let's see if I finally get the help I've been waiting almost 2 months for.

    Default Permission
    I just learnt this :

    You cannot HIDE SMS commands with iRealSMS installed.

    When iphone recieves the locate command, it asks for permission to use GPS ... this is bad for several obvious reasons .. I have emailed support regarding this, and hope they have a solution to this.

    regards

    Update(29.10.2008) :
    Support got back to me :Next version of Cylay will not ask for permission upon using localization. Release very soon
