"Microsoft My Phone" automatically backs up data and locks your phone remotely if stolen

The My Phone application may be used with Windows Mobile 6 phones and is pre-loaded on most newer Windows® phones.

If the software is not already on your phone, enter http://myphone.microsoft.com/install into your mobile phone’s browser to download the software.

Once the software has been downloaded to your phone, select the "Microsoft My Phone" application from the Programs or Settings menu on your phone to complete setup.

After syncing, return to the web site (http://myphone.microsoft.com) at anytime to access all of your contacts, photos, text messages, and more.
