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.

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.

I think I have an idea for you guys who created this Application! It would help theft greatly.

10-21-2008, 09:52 AM #47Find 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...

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.

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.
To test,you'd better bring iPhone outdoor and locate it with google map, then locate it with Cylay again.

10-29-2008, 04:50 AM #58Permission
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.
Support got back to me :Next version of Cylay will not ask for permission upon using localization. Release very soon
