SamsungDive stolen phone service in UK, Germany

Samsung is following in the footsteps of RIM by introducing a rival to Apple's Find My iPhone app that will help users find their smartphones or tablets when lost or stolen. According to PocketNow, SamsungDive will allow users to remotely control the functions of the device in question. It is currently available for the Android-powered Galaxy S II, Galaxy S and Wave smartphones along with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 tablets.

The app uses the device's phone number and product ID and allows for locating it with GPS coordinates, locking it remotely with a PIN code or wiping all data from memory. It can also be configured to send an alert when the SIM card is replaced or view the call log from the remote location.

The service, while free, is only available in the UK and Germany at this time, though more are expected to be added soon. Users need to register and set it up before their devices are lost, however.
