    I emailed support@lookout.com but they haven’t responded. It’s been a couple days and I really want an answer. I remotely installed plan b on my daughter’s phone. It is lost. It gave me an address. I went to that address. I need to run it again. I have had three other people text locate to her phone and it is not restarting. I know the phone is on and it is locked so the person can’t possible uninstall it. AND you cannot uninstall/reinstall it without having the phone so…. Please help!

    Hi Skaufman

    I’m sorry to hear that your daughter has lost her phone. From reading your note above It appears that you’ve done everything right. When I tested Plan B it worked as advertised as you can see by the sample map I posted in my article above.

    You’ve already tried the suggestions listed by lookout labs with their app, I’m not sure why Plan B is not working for you. Hopefully Lookout Labs support will get back with you with some additional steps.

    Best of luck recovering her phone and thanks for stopping by .

    if someone steal my mobile and he ll master reset it and use his gmail id.in that situation will Plan B work for me.

      Plan B can be installed after a device is lost or stolen. But once a device is hard-reset, or in the case of a GSM phone the sim card is replaced, Plan B will not be an effective solution. There are several options that can survive a hard reset or sim card swap but they must be installed on the phone prior to being lost or stolen and in some cases require the phone be rooted.
