    Default Cylay- The world's first fighting theft application for iPhone from iFonetec
    Cylay is the world’s first iPhone security product from iFoneTec that fights theft , tracks lost iPhone, protects data and information, and controls a lost iPhone remotely.

    It is capable of identifying current user of an iPhone after its original owner loses it. In addition, it allows the original owner to delete and back up the information via SMS and internet.
    Cylay uses a smart and intelligent algorithm to decide whether an iPhone is lost, and claims its loss , so that the iPhone can be recovered in some cases.

    Cylay will arm your iPhone with the following of unique features:

    - Report current user phone number when iPhone is lost;
    - Backup iPhone data to Cylay Server or Google Server;
    - Delete all of iPhone information when iPhone is lost;
    - Find lost iPhone location(3G iPhone only);
    - Report Call history and SMS log of lost iPhone;
    - Remotely control lost iPhone: forward SMS, and restore data to iPhone;

    System Requirements

    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
    When I try to spell Jedi's on my iPhone, it auto-corrects it to Jesus...

    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.
