How do you keep your N97 secure?

Seeing as there's 1001 'security' software out there, many of which tout the grand idea of sending back SMS messages, with cell location, gps coordinates, etc

if i were a savvy crook, and i had me an N97 all of a sudden, i would just do the 3 finger salute to it, and that'll erase just about everything on the phone, doesn't it?

some of the 'security' software proudly claim that their software can 'avoid' being erased, etc i feel are just bogus, once the phone's been hard reset, everthing's gone

what's your take on this? is there a failsafe way of securing your mobile, aside from locking it in a safe for the rest of your life?

Angie How many phones do you need?

The only mobile security I have heard of is Kaspersky Mobile Security

http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/kaspersky_mobile_security

Ive never had the need to use a security software.
