  21. What happens if the SIM card was removed? Can I still locate my phone?
    Yes. You will be able to capture the last known location of your phone as long as the phone is connected to the internet and was not reset to factory settings, even if the SIM card was removed.
    If the SIM card was replaced and the phone has an internet connection you will be able to capture the real-time location of your phone as long as it was not reset to factory settings.
  22. Why is an unlimited data plan recommended?
    MobiWee consumes a large amount of data by syncing your contacts, sending and receiving files, videos, etc. from your phone and making them available on your MobiWee account.
    We recommend an unlimited data plan because without one, your carrier will bill you for data transfers, usage fees, etc. used to download and update your MobiWee account. A limited data plan can result in overage data charges, if you're not careful.
    If you don’t have an unlimited data plan, not to worry, just connect to any Wifi network to use the MobiWee services without overage charges.
  23. How can I turn off the email notifications every time I do a request?
    To stop receiving an email notification, login to your account on www.mobiwee.com >> Edit Account info >> Uncheck (receive an email on every request) box

    This means that you need to get the latest updated client version. To download the latest version for your Windows Mobile Device, go to the Android Market and download the latest MobiWee client.

    If you get a device error message, run the MobiWee client on your phone, then make sure the phone number under Menu>Settings>“mobile number” includes a country code (Ex: 19165555555).
    If you still get an error message, make sure the phone number you entered under “mobile number” belongs to the phone/SIM card you are using and is the same phone number you registered with MobiWee when you signed up.
    If you still get an error message, please email us at support@mobiwee.com
  27. If I have a data plan through my carrier, but my phone isn't set up to access the Internet, what should I do?
    If you are unable to access the internet on your phone, you should call your provider to find out what the correct settings are for your specific mobile device.
  28. Should I be concerned about synching the data connection on my phone when roaming?
    Unless you're certain that your plan covers roaming it is likely that your provider will charge you for any data consumed while roaming on another network, even if you have an unlimited data plan. Your best option is to update your preferences to prevent data from being uploaded to your MobiWee account when out of network.
