dc.description.abstract The goal of the Masters project is to develop an application, mainly designed for tracking the lost mobile phone. It is embedded with several tracking features, which will help tracking the lost phone. All the features work on SMS (short text message) basis. So, incoming SMS format plays a vital role. Application on the current platform Mobile Defense is a related app, which uses GPS to track the lost phone of the device or uses the cell tower data to send the coordinates. However, it does not take pictures of the user with inbuilt camera present on the device to track the user with picture and lacks SMS feature, which will be implemented in the current project. Similarly on IOS (iphone OS) an application called Find My iphone which only provides the Location of the device. Android application running in the cell monitors all the incoming messages. If the SMS is meant for the application, it reads the same and performs the expected task. The application auto starts every time you boot your cell, goes to running mode and continuously listens for the incoming SMS messages. Whenever there is a new incoming SMS, it checks the content of the message and does the certain designed features in the application. • Show Me where you are • Unknown SIM Identifier • Show Me the Picture • Call Monitoring Tool • Profile management This Master’s project demonstrates added advantage of SMS features, from which user can track the phone. SMS are easy to use and has no dependency on cellular data. In comparison to related application on Android and IOS, the designed application can give the GPS location by sending the SMS, taking the picture and can still work on changing the SIM card. en
