You know I've always found lockscreens to be a catch 22. On one hand it will prevent others from using your device if stolen, but on the other hand will also prevent someone from returning it of found.

I know it sounds silly, but UV pens and just adding a name and phone number can work wonders. If someone hands it to police they can check those things.

I'll rather have it locked and have peace of mind knowing that someone isn't going to get my account banned or start sending messages to people on my friends list.

I don't know about you but where I live if you lose your phone it's as gone for good, don't even bother ringing it.

Do you mean to put a GPS chip inside your Vita? How would you do that? If it is possible, I would do it in a heartbeat!

But if the system is locked or signed off from PSN, then would that still work? What if you have the Wifi version? :(

Doesn't the 3G vita have GPS?

Anyways I always use a lock with my phone and with the Vita I will be doing the same.
