Use BlueRetriever to Get Back Your Lost Cell

Geek Tip: Use BlueRetriever to Get Your Lost Mobile Back

I was smitten by Apple's new Find My iPhone service when it was announced at this year's WWDC, but let's get real — not everyone wants (or can) subscribe to MobileMe. So for all of you who fall into this category, there's BlueRetriever.

BlueRetriver is like an insurance policy, which gives you a way to get back your lost cell without having to do much more than sign up for a free account and downloading the BlueRetriever wallpaper. Why wallpaper you ask? Well, BlueRetriever relies on good Samaritans — the wallpaper you download has a big and obvious "Return For Reward" message displayed on your home screen (a reward in which you set up beforehand), and a code to enter on BlueRetriever.com. Whoever finds your phone enters the code online, and alerts you via email that your precious mobile was found. Once your mobile is back in your hands, your good Samaritan receives an e-card for the predetermined reward amount.

Simple, easy, and way cheaper than a monthly MobileMe subscription. To see which phones are currently supported by BlueRetriever, just

That's a nice alternative. Might also prevent people from trying to track down their stolen iPhone on their own.
