    Hi all. I lost my GALAXY S DUOS mobile on Tuesday. Sometimes I found that thief putting on his internet and he’s coming online in GTALK and FACEBOOK with my id which seems he dint yet delete my account. I tried tracking him using SAMSUNG DIVE website but it REALLY SUCKS to open at that instant. Most of the times it says “Page not found” and “Go to Home Page” kind of things. I SERIOUSLY NEED YOUR HELP GUYS.. All my family photos and important data were in it. Found no progress after lodging complaint in Police Station..

    I lost my galaxy note ( possibly stolen) a month ago, and gave up on it. but learned about samsung dive recently. when I logged in to samsung dive it says that my sim card has been replaced. Am right now waiting to locate my phone…but its been a while. Should it still work without knowing what the phone number is? is there a way to disable the phone if u know the imei number

    I have successfully registered a Samsung account on my SamsungGalaxy R after the purchase. Now as my phone is stolen I want to track it through SamsungDive but I have my SIM card blocked and re-issued.
    I have logged in on the SamsungDive website but it is unable to access my phone. Any help would be GREAT..

    Thank You

    it didn’t work for me, my device was registered, i did test time before, but, when I really need it it didnt work, so the theft must be happy now :S
    I RECOMMEND that SamsungDive should work with IMEI and whatever is done in the device it should be blocked immediately. Also SamsungDive should show me the IMEI of the device in order to let me go the Telecom company and block it by IMEI.
    That would be GREAT!

      same for me. All the thief needed to do was take the sim away and it wouldn’t work. 🙁

    If this service is not available in some countries why do they let you register and when you try to track it they do not let you know that the service is not available? I registered the phone on dive and after it got stolen i logged in to find it with no success. It can not connect to the phone. Also i never go a sim change alert so what is the point if it does not work with IMEI?

    • Pradeep Neela

      April 7, 2012 at 1:00 am

      yes its a fault from samsung end!

    Is samsung Dive available in Ireland yet? currently trying to set up account but like everyone else can only go so far!!

  20. Sion

    January 20, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    will this feature work on a 2G network? and will it work if perhaps someone stole the phone and remove the sim card?
    suggestion: this feature should use the IMEI number of the phone.. so this will mean even if theres no sim card it should work.

    • Pradeep Neela

      January 22, 2012 at 2:41 pm

      yes it wil work! as of now its not there in India!

    I have registered an s2 for samsung dive no problems

    When I try to register my wifes Galaxy S plus i get the same message as everyone else \Register your mobile now\ and can’t click past this.

    Incidently I can’t see the samsung account when I go on Settings>Accounts and sync on the s plus, nor do I have the option of adding a samsung account (I had to add it in the first place by clicking through from ‘set mobile tracker’)

    Any news on how to get this working on an s plus?

    (Im in the UK)

            In phone menu ‘Account and sync’ / ‘Add account’ there is no Samsung account choice. Why?

          • Pradeep Neela

            June 1, 2013 at 11:37 pm

            you need to check with the Samsung’s website for a full list of compatible list

    Hello, I registered my galaxy s2 on and then setup an account on but I am not able to see the controls. Instead, it is showing “Register your mobile phone now” i click this area and nothing happens.
    another issue is that in my phone i can’t sync Samsung account its grayed out.
    i can sync all other account. any advise?
    is it true that if the ROM is flashed the lock locate and wipe services are useless ?

    Please help!!!!

    The problem is that if people remove the sim and dont acces internet, or install a different rom the tool is useless. My phone got stolen today and I have Samsung Dive activated but the thieves immediatly took my sim out and I guess they flashed a different rom because dive can not locate or lock my phone… So still no guarantee to retrieve your phone when it is stolen.

    Not working with Bell in Canada. I can log in and see all the tools (track, sweep, lock and calls-log) but just works calls-log and nothing else. I dont know if the service provider who blocked it or its still to come to Ontario. Hoppefully its gonna be fixed soon. I sugest to commenter to provide their location and service provider so we can have a clear map on where its working or not.
    Device: Samsung Galaxy s2

      Same here, I created Samsung account, activated it, the screen keeps hanging at “Register yuor mobile phone now!” with no option to register anywhere. Have u tested it yourself Neal?

      • businka19

        September 7, 2011 at 3:00 pm

        I got it working eventyally. The key is to register your product at Samsung (not Samsung Dive) website. Therefore u have to create a samsung account, ON YOUR PHONE. So if u have a rooted phone and u freezed some samsung stuff, u do have to unfreeze it first. The problem with Dive is that your 3G connection has to be active otherwise it will not work. So if your phone is set to flight mode, or connection simply put to 2G u wont be able to lock, ring or wipe your phone OTA. In short, the service is useless.

      • NeaL Pradeep

        September 7, 2011 at 6:01 pm

        yes its working at our end!
