I just tried the locate function and the "scream" and neither worked.
Does the malware scanner work?
How do I uninstall this useless software (two for three isn't a winning percentage)?
Did you receive any error messages when you were trying to use these features? The malware scanner does work, I have used it personally, and with Lookout being pre-installed, you do not have the option remove it.
No error messages. The Lookout webpage simply had a countdown when using the locate feature, it counted down from either 2 or 3 minutes, then when it got to 0:00, it just reset with no error. The scream feature never worked.
Why pre-install useless software?
It works for most of us, and from what you described it isn't causing any trouble on your phone.
If you need help with the Lookout web page like you described, it's a separate service from T-Mobile. We don't have the tools to support their website. Lookout supplies their own support here: https://www.mylookout.com/help
