[Tips] Invoke Activator actions by sending messages from other phone

There might be a time when your iPhone was stole by someone and he happens to know a lot about it and quickly disable location services to disable real time tracking on iCloud server.

So here's a tips on how you can invoke an action using Activator to enable back location services by sending a message with magic words using other phone.

  1. Open Activator.
  2. Tap Anywhere and tap the edit button on top right.
  3. Tap Received Message.
  4. Leave alone the 'Sender' and put any magic word on 'Message' (example: I put 'TURNONLOC' as my magic word.)
  5. Once done back to Anywhere.
  6. Scroll down and find 'Received Message' and you should see your magic word there.
  7. Tap on it and choose these (just my recommendation) under 'Switches (Activate)':
    • Location Services
    • Wi-Fi
    • Cellular Data
  8. Tap on 'Back' and you're good to go.
What it do is whenever your iPhone receive a message with TURNONLOC as one of the word it will activate the action that you choose above. The reason there is no space because if you got a message with let say turn in it, it will activate the action too.
