Many tablets out today have no cell capability and Lookout runs on them without problem. In the same way, Lookout can function seamlessly on a phone without a SIM or cell connectivity. While we used to rely upon SMS as the primary means of connecting to a device, the tablet revolution meant we needed to rethink that strategy. We now make use of Google's C2DM technology to handle tablets and phones. We are excited to have another tool in our technological quiver that will help make your Lookout experience smooth and effective.
Note: If necessary, we still have the ability to use SMS as a fallback for devices with a cell connection.
