    Love the program. It has the ability to send an audio ping to device which is helpful when I place my BB down somewhere in the house and forget. Lol I can just follow where the warbler is coming from. Location is good through the use of Google maps as I don’t have GPS on my phone. Not too sure about the self destruct yet have yet to read the users manual. Lol even helps on tracking my spouse when she takes my phone….hehe guess I will be buying her a BB. Can look at the Contacts and other important info without having to go through the phone. Printing out info is easy. Great for all.

    I cant be sure, but since i installed this and had it running, it gulps down my 8900 battery quite quickly and i can feel the handset is warm. After I uninstalled it, it was okay. Not sure what was the problem
