» Star EnForcer Description

This little utility will automatically detect if the SIM card of a smartphone or pocket pc was replaced. Star EnForcer will automatically send a SMS message to a previously specified phone number containing the new SIM IMSI and current location in hexa LAC-CID combination. The message will repeat every 30 minutes.

How does it work:

- install the CAB in the phone/ppc memory (not the storage card). Make sure that you have installed it in \Program Files\SEF
- launch SEF - initially there is no password so press OK. Press Get IMSI. If a long number will appear then it means that the application is compatible with your smartdevice. Mostly C600 - based models should work, C500, Wizard PPCs etc
- input the phone number that you want to use in case your smartdevice is stolen (use a parent's mobile phone, a friend's etc)
- input a password
- press save
- press activate

Now... in case someone steals your phone the first thing they will do is to (obviously) replace the SIM. SEF will automatically detect that the SIM has been replaced by comparing IMSI information. After 30 minutes SEF will automatically send a SMS to the predefined phone number that will include the current SIM's IMSI and the current GSM location (LAC-CID combination in hexa). With the first information and the fact that you will clearly see the thief's phone number you can go to the network operator or the police. If the thief is using a SIM with a subscription he is nailed. If he is using a prepay SIM then at least you will draw comfort from the fact that the credit from that SIM will be drained in a few days because the fact that SEF will automatically repeat the message every 30 minutes (you will also be able to track the thief).

This worked great with my cingular 3125, but would bot work with my BlackJack. Pretty cool though.

Unfortunately it doesn't work with the HTC MTeoR. Nevertheless good idea to write a free tool for that purpose.

It's a great idea. However, if, I have 2 SIM cards & often change one to another into my device. How could I disable the automatic-SMS-sender feature? If it could not be disabled, then it would be painful for my walet. Thanks.

Loaded easily onto QTEK8500. Hopefully won't find out how good it is at tracking when stolen. But I will try it by borrowing a SIM. Like Herman I have a second SIM for holidays, is it a case of resetting SEF? Brilliant!

Install with no problem on Samsung SGH-i600 but SEF will not detect the IMSI (SIM NO.) or the location for setup, there is also no way to manually enter the sim number. Great Idea - But not for the Samsung Phones :-(

Works like a charm on my Orange SPV C100 WM% Smartphone. Only thing is that I also have two sim cards anit would be great it future versions of this wonderful app had the ability to recognise more than one sim card.

That's correct, they can also go on an A330 as well, augholth they're part of the PW4000 series they are all´╗┐ different engines, but sound quite similar in comparison (to my limited knowledge) to engines by other manufacturers like General Electric and Rolls Royce.
