I use Android but heh, other phones this would be cool too.

What I want is a bitcoin client that is locked. Numeric keyword required to open it. Say 52864 - obviously set by the user.

Three consectutive failed attempts and all funds in it are sent to my `oh shit my phone was stolen' address.

It wouldn't stop the person who takes the phone apart to read the data card, but it may prevent my coins from vanishing if my phone fell out of my pocket on the bus and a kid picks up.

QuarkCoin - what I believe bitcoin was intended to be. On reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/QuarkCoin/

You can encrypt the phone and set a lock PIN to achieve the same thing. I guess this is a convenience thing, you don't want to have to unlock the phone for stuff except money?

I think what you need is a backup of the wallet.

You would probably want an encrypted wallet. If your passphrase is strong enough, even a hundred failed attempts should still protect your coins.
