SmrtGuard 

If you're a SmrtGuard user you have the peace of mind that your data is safe should your device be lost or stolen. Why not let any potential BlackBerry thieves know that you are protected by SmrtGuard as well? Well now you can with the SmrtGuard Protection Theme. This simple theme has rotating "Protected By SmartGuard" wallpapers and a weblink to the SmrtGuard mobile site. Nothing fancy theme-wise, but it will let the world know that you have the best BlackBerry protection there is. The theme is available to current customers by visiting smrtguard.com/m.

Contest: To celebrate the release of the theme, the guys at SmrtGuard are giving away 100 free monthly subscriptions. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won't count.

This theme is the most retarded thing ever! If a thief knows what SmrtGuard is, they can simply close the app and it becomes useless! Any idiot that installs this theme deserves to have their phone taken.

If the app is deleted (it is always running in the backround)and you have the phone passcoded(if you buy smartguard then you probable have a password) then the phone will restart and the on start up it will request a password. We all know what happens when you enter to many incorrect passwords

I agree completely. smrtguard is very easy to get around. Your better off not advertising you have it installed! My friend had it and asked me to see what i could do...10 min later i had a new phone...hehehe. However the "average" user probably wont know what to do. Its worth a shot though. The best idea is getting a holster and not leaving your phone laying around. Think of it as a credit card or something. Or put a password on your BB, that works just as well. Whether you have smrtguard installed or not, they can always just wipe the device. With smrtguard at least your data is backed up though!

Thanks

xobrian

Wouldn't this just make the thief aware that there is something on there that he needs to get off?

It's not going to stop them from stealing it, they are just going to figure out faster that they need to wipe out the device (after they google what smrtguard is).

Disciplinz

Awesome, let's hope we can prove it works. Working in a 'secure' environment, we have recently had items such as mobiles, money etc stolen.

Maybe this will deter them!

Smart Guard and Smart Phones go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly.

I would love to have the opportunity to win this contest... I currently use SmrtGuard on my personal line and would love to win one for my work line. I have been trying to get the company I work for to purchase this in bulk for all of our smartphone customer base, however that's not going as planned. I've explained to them the greatness of all that is SmrtGuard, the online backup/restore, the option of remote tracking as well as wiping of the device is MAJOR!!

Razkull

This is an amazing app. I won 6 months free on Facebook, and another month would be great! I'm your newest fan!

kennyj126

Been thinking about try this product.

Head Dawg

No matter what a jerk a thief can be. One thing they do is not want to be identified. The idea of a protection theme banner is great! Puts everyone on notice that this is a BB that you wouldnt want.
Great idea!

RazorV

Been a SmrtGuard Client for quite a while now and would love to get a a free subscription of any length. Awesome product and it's well worth the $3-$4/mo for insurance incase I loose my Tour.

Cheers!

serenade

I could use a Smart Guard app. I love you Crackberry. Pick meeeeee~!!!!!

Blkbear

that should come installed on every BB, with the option to subscribe later if you like, after the free trial.

Having a theme advertising the fact you have a "lowjack" type app on the phone, is like putting a "This house Protected by Brinks Alarm system" sticker on your front lawn.... the would be crook just cuts the phone line and the power to the house, breaks in and takes what he wants. This is one of the reasons that cars with Lowjack, do not have a LOWJACK sticker on their windows.

lowrdr

Lets see if I might get a chance to win this....WOOT!!

Anything I can do to keep my info and my blackberry safe.I love her to much to take a risk =)

ga sonshyne

I would love to use this. It seems that I have had my phone stolen right along with my car on two different occassions.

Both times the thief ran up my cell phone bill within a few hours time. I had no idea my car was stolen due to being inside. Just so happen to be a day when I was rushing and left my phone inside the center console. Phone and car gone.

The second time I was left with a 500.00 cell phone bill. I was not amused to say the least.

Great APP, I need it!

Pastor Ron

Thank you for entering me for the drawing. I would love using that theme and subscription.
