Premium Features

My Phone can help you secure a lost phone using new Premium features.  You can lock or post a message on your phone from the web.  Or, if you know the phone is gone for good, you can use My Phone to erase all your personal information so it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.  For a limited time, you can try these features for free, so be sure to check them out.  Premium features are not available in all markets.

The content you have already synced remains available and can be managed online.
