Worried about your phone being stolen? Create a deterrent with a new service that makes your phone 'scream' if stolen. The service is launched to deter mobile phone theft by adding a device that creates an ear piercing scream that won't stop until the battery is removed. If you replace the SIM card, the phone won't work. As the company's website describes, "Synchronica mobile phone management software Mobile Manager can remotely lock and wipe data from mobile phones as soon as their owners report the loss. If the phone has been stolen, companies can also turn on the Synchronica Scream Feature, causing an annoying and embarrassing high pitched wail to be emitted from the stolen device."
