I heard about Lookout a bit back but when I searched for the app it was not available for BlackBerry. Phreqd let me know that they now have more information on the Lookout site about their free BlackBerry app. The free app provides three functions in one including wireless backups, antivirus/spyware app scanning, & lost phone location finder.
I had a chance to try out the backup feature and it works pretty well. It lets you schedule a backup nightly or on your own schedule and you can access the data from your desktop browser. The lost phone finder is also a nice perk since it will make your phone beep loudly even if it is on silent and will show you where you device is on a map. It can even let you remotely wipe the device from the desktop site.
