    So are there no mobile security apps for iPhone? Android and BlackBerry both have multiple options, I use LooOut on mine. I'm not necessarily looking for an antivirus, more the contact/picture back up and GPS locator incase lost/stolen. I used the search function, but found nothing under mobile security. Any suggestions?

    Look into MobileMe.

    What ROO said. Mobileme, it is an Apple provided pay service that provides location services for a lost/stolen iphone. It can also provide remote wipe capability.

    On top of that, it will also provide you a backup of your contacts, calendar, and bookmarks real-time. So if your phone is lost or stolen, it is easy to locate and wipe, and then when you get your replacement you can easily have them back on your phone in 5 minutes.

    Excellent tool.

    So the way you guys talk about it leads me to believe that it's not an app. Also, one of you mentioned that it's a "pay service", does that mean it's a onetime payment, or is there some monthly fee associated with this service? I know LookOut is currently working on getting into the Apple market, but knowing the proprietary nature of the "i", I'm not holding my breath.

    ps> Thanks for the responses guys/gals!

    There are apps that will locate your phone for you. They're not as elegant or as feature packed as mobileme though. You can usually find mobileme for around $60-70 on eBay. It also offers a 3 month trial if you want to see what it does.

    Recently, like in the last month, Apple has begun allowing a lot of stuff they didn't before. Whether this has anything to do with the Justice Department or whatever, who knows. There are apps that offer the "find phone" functionality. I think the most popular one is the aptly titled "FoneHome," which also garners 4 stars, which is pretty good.
