    Activate Phone Locator in

    Settings -> Security -> Device Administrator -> Android Device Manager.

    Then link you phone here.
    Android Device Manager

    This can help you locate your phone through browser and remotely link it..

    There are a lot of Anti-Theft apps .. pick one you like and install it.

    Don't download Facebook app. Use it thru opera mobile. The damn app Burns resources and battery.

    Also look at whatsapp, utorrent, utorrent remote, go keyboard,

    atleast pick up the $1 apps .. those few are well worth the penny/dime/paisa ..


    Also to that list I would add Solid Explorer .. (THE BEST file manager for Android .. its paid but worth many times the price) you may also try ES File Explorer its a free alternative. See which you prefer.
