Default Best Anti-Theft System

Please Login to Remove!

Good Day, I'm trying to decide which best Anti-Theft System to use with my BB. So far I have looked at the following:

- Where's My Phone
- Roblock
- SMobile
- SmrtGuard
- GetItBack (previously FindIt)
- PhoneBAK (Bak2U)

Any feedback based on experience? Thanks in advance.

My theft deterrent device begins with a "4" and ends with "Magnum".

Works every time.

The best Anti-Theft System is to keep the device securely in your possession and out of sight when you are in situations where the theft potential is high.

Those programs listed will only help with recovery and protection of your device/data. They won't help with theft.

I hear good things about Roblock. Never used any anti-theft solutions myself. I keep my BlackBerry set to autolock and I have insurance. That pretty much covers it.
