Implement Scream/Ring functionality

For loss/theft protection, please implement the ability to let the phone ring in a very loud tone (even on muted) for at least 1 minute.
This helps, if you have lost your phone in your house. It also can disturb thiefs to get away unnoticed

    The built in "Find my iPad" allows for the device to make a noise to aid in finding it. It would be nice to have this feature for managed devices. Also the ability to lock out users from turning location services off in Settings.

    This is also included in the Apple iCloud Find My Phone option online. As is the ability to send a message to the lock screen.

    I'd like to see the lock screen message and sound as an option in SMC for the admins and the users.

    I miss this feature from Blackberry days. Along with adding custom message on home screen to alert that phone has been tracked and should be handed in.

    This is part of the Free Sophos Security App (For Android) - Why can it not be part of the SMC app or even the Security app when managed by SMC???

    I have a customer that really liked the feature in the Free app and then is disappointed to see this not available in the more "advanced" enterprise version??

    I can understand some technical issues around supplying the nominated phone numbers able to do this but you could simply add the feature to the SSP so users can do this themselves.
