First and foremost I'd like to congrats AVG team for making such an excellent mobile antivirus program. And on top of that, it's (almost completely) free. Nothing but kind words!
I'm writing this in order to clear some things. I'm trying to figure it out if it's a bug or am I having some troubles using this application.
I'm addressing of course the SMS lock option.
In the AVG antivirus free aplication, under:
Anti theft --> How to use anti theft there's a mini tutorial on how to lock mobile phone using SMS messages.
Supposedly, if I send the "LockMyPhone [predefined password]" from some other phone to mine, it should lock my phone. However, unfortunately, it does not.
It does, however, lock the phone via the web portal where I've registered. But I have to be online for that.
Anyways, I'm just trying to understand how this "LockMyPhone" function works.
I recently lost my phone but was fortunate enough that the person returned it,. Prior to getting back my phone i went on the web app and locked the phone. Now that i got it back i restarted my phone and it just wouldn't come on to give me the option to unlock it. The phone just shows me the start up screen and its stuck on that for hours... Can anyone help me with this problem?
