I read somewhere that you can find the location of a mobile phone for free via your PC. You had to send a text to the phone and then accept the text. Then you would always know where it was. I need this as my son is getting a more expensive phone (which I personally don't want him to have), and he may lose it. There are services available, but you have to pay. Google Latitude only traces by the email address.

 

Thanks All

I found this:-

 

Simple surveillance

You don’t have to plant a CIA-style bug to conduct surveillance any more. A service called World Tracker lets you use data from cell phone towers and GPS systems to pinpoint anyone’s exact whereabouts, any time — as long as they’ve got their phone on them.

All you have to do is log on to the web site and enter the target phone number. The site sends a single text message to the phone that requires one response for confirmation. Once the response is sent, you are locked in to their location and can track them step-by-step. The response is only required the first time the phone is contacted, so you can imagine how easily it could be handled without the phone’s owner even knowing.

Haven't read it all yet, but there is a lot more advanced options to what I have put above.

 

Would appreciate any feedback as if it is as simple as it looks, it could be a Godsend to your childrens (and your own) phone.

That one costs too (although it is Pay as You Go and no registration fee or monthly costs). Not the dearest I've seen, but could still be invaluable if your kids have a phone. I am sure I seen a free one somewhere though.

 

I guess I'll just keep on looking.:roll:

I found out the other day, purely by chance, that my service provider Orange is now part of T f'ing mobile! I even had T mobile on my phone a few times!

Be aware though that the above wont pinpoint the exact location, they use the phone signal which may or may not be very accuarte, If i turn on my Nokia maps and it cant find a GPS signal then it uses this method, its normally pretty accurate but is sometimes miles out, for example at busy times your phone may end up using an aerial miles away, on NYE for example.

 

There are various GPS option where you can track friends, etc but you would need them to have it activated on their phone.

GPS (global positioning by satalite) has been around for a long time. It used to be part of my job with BT. At it's best, the position can be up to three metres. Mostly though, triangulation via transmitters with quite a bit of info. from the satalite is an educated guess using the strength of each part of the process and depends on many varying factors.

 

As a last resort emergency services use this method even today because there really isn't anything more accurate. Appart from military purposes of course ;)
