    New security application for when a BB is lost possible?

    Given it can be done from a BES and there are some host based applications/services that can do it, how about a stand alone application that offers remote control of a device via emailed or SMS'd requests. The idea is that the app sits in background and is pre configured by the user with a password.

    The user can then send emails or txts with a syntax that will control certain functions. E.g.

    "passwd LOCK"
    sent as a txt or email to the device would lock the device and send a confirmation reply email/txt to the email_address/tel_number that sent the request

    Other commands could be to WIPE the device, or LOCATE it (switching on the GPS and sending co-ordinates next time it had a position lock). Or maybe send a POPUP message and sound (even if the device is locked)

    Actually there is an application similar to what you describe...I know Hayden posted it in a news update a few months back - I will look and see if I can find it and post a link.

    Here's another one that is in private beta that might be exactly what you are looking for -- SmrtGuard (http://smrtguard.com/smrtguard.jsp).
