Configuring a Connection to Device Manager on SMS Reception or Call

Dec 21, 2015

This feature allows for Windows Mobile devices to be forced to connect back to the server running Device Manager when either a call or SMS from a preconfigured number is received by the device. To enhance security, a keyword must be included within the SMS message. This is particularly useful if a device is lost or stolen, and needs to be remotely disabled or wiped.

To use this feature, in the Connect On SMS reception / Connect on Call dialog box, select to either connect to server when receiving a SMS message or phone from a specific number.
