    McAfee GPS

      Hi everybody,

      Please, I need some advice with McAfee, concretely, I wish to know, if it is possible to control one phone by sms with some other phone, if the version of the rom is different on these phones (for example, 1. phone have android 2.3.5 and second android 4.0.4). And, also I am not sure, I understand a location of the lost phone - Anti-Theft. I mean, the GPS will turn on on the lost phone, when I send a sms from other phone a the location will start? And is it possible to locate the lost phone (so turn on the gps) if the phone is turn off?

      Thank you for all of your advices

            Please, is there some possibility to contact the technical support by email? I dont utilise McAfee (it is my father, but i have a different type of rom) so I cant fill in all the boxies in the questionaire on service.mcafee.com and I dont send email to technical support. I am from Czech Republic.

            Thank you and have a nice day

                Back to your original question, although I don't use a smart phone myself I doubt what you are seeking is possible.  You might consider asking it on an independent mobile forum too.
