A free app I found on Lifehacker. Don't worry it's not a rickroll or anything.

But I think it's only for those of you in the US right now. Called iTag. Helps you recover, track or wipe your Android device remotely and the service is free.

Wavesecure... it's what I use.. on my N79 of course.

Sorry for the OT, but I have to ask since you mention wavesecure. Wavesecure is free for nokia phones right? Then why is it that while I am able to use all backup features for free (S60v3), my dad (on an X6 with S60v5) gets a limitation of only being able to backup SMSes? Any idea?

Well it is.

This portal is exclusively for owners of selected Nokia phones in India - WaveSecure is free for you, courtesy of Nokia! If you donít have WaveSecure pre-loaded, you can click here to sign up too!


Now I get it, his phone was bought from the states. So it wouldn't register as a Nokia India model. Maybe that's why. Oh well, atleast he can back up contacts...

Carry on people. I shall go win an HTC Incredible or a Droid or something and come back and join you.

yes, sony has promised 2.1 on x10 but dont know if they will actually follow up on that promise or not..
about multi-touch, upgrade to 2.1 doesn't depend on that...

they haven't released the update yet so dont know how to update.. the vendors can choose to give an OTA update that the phone can download and install automatically or they can put it on their website that you can download and install through PC...
Samsung provides updates through website i think..
Google/HTC give OTA as well as through site..
Why X10 doesnt already have 2.1 is what only Sony can answer but probably they started developing it when 1.5/1,6 was out and didn't have enough time to rebase code over to 2.1 before release..

The problem is Rachael UI is not ready for 2.1 hence no update. When they release it in Sept, by that time 2.2 will already be released so its fail
