No, I do not really believe that. =) But it amazes me everyday the apps that come out for the most worthless things. I guess the entertainment value is enough for some people though. I was browsing apps the other night and saw one called "the electric razor" ????? I guess you can pretend that your really shaving? A lot of people depend on apps for everything they do, and I wonder how we ever got by without them...(that was sarcasm, again) ;)
Mitch, - If you lose your phone i believe you can still get a sim with the same phone number...(i'm assuming this is a standard...). In which case you can receive your messages as before once you get a new phone.
There is an app for locating your phone...I can locate my Iphone from my laptop.
@PaulS, yes there are many such apps available. I am impressed with the app from mobile security company which allows you to locate a mobile device even when it's battery is fully discarged. The app logs the location of the phone right as the battery is discharging, which increases chances of finding it.
Well, the electric razor has raised more than a few questions! That is completely bizarre. Would my boss let me stay at work if I have nasty stubble as long as I simulated the action of shaving with my ipod?
