    I ahve a question about one of the suggestions you made. If I want my phone to text my when I am 10 minutes away. I set the trigger location and text her phone with my message. My question is this, in the morning when I pass through the trigger lacation will it text her?

      Not if you also add a timeframe to the triggers.

    Pete – you could set a timeframe rule, so the text would only be sent in the evening and not the morning.

      I just made my home network secure. I entered the key in the phone but it will not recognize home rule now. Any ideas?

    I just tried to implement rules via the app and it won’t let me do so unless wifi is enabled. Isn’t that going to drain my battery further if it is always searching for wifi?

    Driod Razr…  If you set a rule to turn off cellular data while conected to Wifi.  Manually turn off Wifi or leave wifi area and cellular data does not turn back on.  Any ideas?

    Unable to turn wifi on or off based on location.  the first smart action i wanted to create and i am unable to.  thats a disappointment.  Three ways to locate and location trigger is tied to wifi in such a way as to disable it as an action.  Pity

      I had the same problem… Check out “Verizon wifi auto on” app from the market. It lets you set locations that will automatically turn on wifi, letting you then use your locations for smart actions.

    I had to get creative with mine. to work the wifi on or off…  i basically have to assume that if i’m plugged into wall charger or usb charger I am at work or home so I turn wifi on and disable cellular data and gps.  If I am plugged into navigation dock I turn wifi off and cellular data on.

    I tried to set a smart action to send a text message to all missed calls. However it is not working but the smart actions icon indicates that it is. Can anyone help me out with this?

    How can I use the app to turn off applications.  For example, we use an App at work that allows me to hook my phone to my work calendar and email.  I figured out how to start it when I arrive at work, but cannot figure out how to get it to close the app when I leave.
