mobile phone with anti-theft features

25 January 2007 by axxxr
Tianyu B832 is a dualband GSM phone that doesn't catch attention at first glance: just a plain design,What's so special about it would be its anti-theft features.

Firstly when somebody steals your phone and changes a new SIM card, an SMS message will be automatically sent to your old number (which you can receive once you get a new SIM card from your operator bearing the same number), so youfll know who has taken your phone and hunt that cheapskate down.

Secondly, once the phone gets back on network, it can be locked offshore from a computer if you choose to do so, itfs almost like the IMEI trick but this time you are playing police yourself. So the question is, why would anyone want to steal it? Well, the screen is a 2.4 QVGA TFT, and the camera is of 2 megapixel that can be interpolated to 3 megapixel; the camera can also act as a webcam once connected to the USB port. The body measures 100~51x14mm weighing at 100g, so you can imagine a Nokia N73 screen mounted on to a thinner version of SonyEricsson K750i- quite tempting indeed. The microSD slot can take memory cards up to 1GB, and the music coming out from the stereo speakers sounded loud enough.

Also, a 2.5mm earphone jack is built in. A2DP profile, flight mode and TV-out are all supported. The Tianyu B832 is being released in Hong Kong and Mainland China yesterday, street price is around $225 source:gearfuse

Either way you've lost your phone.

That's why you should use the service I offer at You can backup all the numbers stored in the SIM and handset memory, and also the serial numbers of the handset and SIM, as well as the IMEI. You still lose your phone but at least you don't lose your numbers.

One month free for everyone to check it out.

Ok now lets suppose i have this phone and the new owner puts in a simcard and his number will be send to me by sms. So now.. i have his number.. Now what? Call him to tell him to give me back my phone? Or block it? That wont help me getting my phone back. GPS tracing via internet would be much better :P
