It does everything including ability to wipe phone, lock phone, erase SD card, and of course locate by GPS or network.

    "Just about everyone has lost their phone at one point or another, and this app basically just functions as a way to help you find it. It does not seem to work 100% of the time in every scenario with every type of phone, though it does seem to be more reliable than most competitors. It seems like it will save you quite a bit of hassle and is probably worth having around."

    "Cerberus is a brilliant piece of software that is so low key, the phone thief won't know what hit him. It is hidden and runs in the background so it's not obvious like other phone locating software plus it allows access to audio recording and camera functions. BUSTED! I can't imagine using any other software. "
