Lost phone, can avast find it?
« on: April 27, 2012, 02:36:46 AM »
I don't know what to tell you...  It's an android, it is locked, I lost it over 24 hours ago, it's still ringing, so I think that means the battery is still alive and that the phone is still turned on.  I'm very computer and phone illiterate, be forewarned!  Can I find my phone thru my PC using avast?  Thanks.
