I am trying to activate it.. it is still "pending activation".

mine activated pretty quickly

not sure.. I think once you get to the activation screen that mean the SW will work.. perhaps their servers are backed up with activations..

Already posted this information in another thread but....

I installed the software... Invited a colleague to test it out. Although I can see him "green" on the screen I can't get a proximity... The app just return a question mark... So... I'm really not sure if it actually works.

Can anyone tell me if they had success with it?

I downloaded, activated, and added some friends but they're all pending at the moment.

I tested with a friend and it works although there seemed to be a bit of a delay in receiving the email notifications to our phones. I personally can't really find a need for this software unless it's opened up to more than just BB and WM phones.

SameCell has an application that you can install on your phone to help them gather information on cell tower locations, and get paid for it. They recenlty raised their rate from $0.02/new tower to $0.04/new tower.

check it out and SameCell Setup

Default Cells Discovered record lost if switching handhelds

I used an 8800 before and it discovered some new cells and earned few $$ but after I switched to use another 8100 (registered email address is the same as I used in the 8800), the record lost. Too bad.

Zerog, hope you don't mind but I saved your avatar. Pretty Cool.
As for the samecell, do you know how actually good it is? It looks interesting, but I'm cautious about it.

I loaded that software and I checked it after I went to work this morning. It says that is found 31 sites. Thats 31 sites in a 25 min trip to work. However they are not new sites to the application so I guess someone else got them first.

I don't know what I did wrong??? I installed SameCell, it was not an icon (couldn't find it hidden) but it ran in the background (thought I saw a fairly decent battery drop, not sure though).

I activated it, and tried to set it up to locate certain items, but it never got past the little "setup" screen. Never told me who/what was close to me. I don't have GPS though, thought it did triangular cell location too, so I don't know why I had so many problems with it...
