Hi,you do not need to jailbreak the phone to install Mobi, however you will need the phones IMEI number which you can get of the box the iPhone came in and then you will need physical access to the phone to install the software.Basically what you do is go to the mobi site and sign up for the level of service you want, As you setup the service you will be asked to provide the IMEI which you can get from the sticker on the end of the iPhone box..After the Mobi account is setup what you will then do is take the phone you wnat the software setup on and then open its web browser and go to the install page you are given during the account setup.Once there you follow the prompts to install the Mobi application and then once done that is it.
Will you stay with me to do this?
Thanks. Do I have to wait for the licensing info from MobiStealth? I just purchased it.
The first thing to do is grab the iPhones box and then go to http://www.mobistealth.com/
just click the order now link and then choose the iphone check box at the top and then choose your model of iPhone on the bottom.
OK I am doing that.
Before you do this can you tell me if the phone you want to install this on has a large data plan for internet?
The reason I ask is that the Mobi application uses the internet connection to send usage data, pictures chats etc so if you dont have the large data plan it can end up consting a lot of money in bandwidth usage
Also the pro version uses a lot of data as it records so much more like live calls etc
I can increase the data plan. what would you suggest?
Honestly I would suggest sending an email to Mobi and asking them what they reccomend for the Lite and pro versions as they will be able to give you a better figure as we do not know the average data useage for their app.http://www.mobistealth.com/contact_us.php
I have heard of the app and installed it on droid and blackberry for a couple of commercial clients, howevver I have never installed it on a personal unit so I cannot tell you how much bandwidth it uses, however I would assume it is quite a lot
Especially if the person you are monitoring uses a lot of email, pictures and movies
so, have you ever installed it on an iphone 4s?
No, Not on an iPhone 4s the only iPhone I have put this on was a 3GS, however it was a business account that had unlimited data
If you want to coantact mobi first and ask them then let me know back in this thread when they answer by clicking the link you will have been emailed by justanswer
that way you can make sure to get the correct version before we continue
I will contact mobi to determine my data needs. in the meantime, I will get the phone and get Mobi installed. Can we proceed and get the data straitened out later?
It will take about 15 minutes. How do I get in touch with you?
just click the link you were emailed and it will bring you back here so we can continue
just post in here when you wish to continue
Will you be later today as well?
Yes,I will be here for the next 6-8 hrs
Sounds great. Take care and talk soon.
then I am usually here each day from 5pm eastern till midnight
ok, speak to you soon
When you get back just post in this thread, For the moment I have to have the last word as that way the system will notify me when you post next
Hello again, I will have to wait until Monday to do this. I will get back to you then. Thanks for your help.
No problem,speak to you tomorrow
