How to Track a Cell Phone Using GPS

Video transcription

Hi I'm Ben from The Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today I'm going to show you how to track a cellphone using GPS. There are a couple of different ways to do this and all of them source from a couple of different things, the first one being whether or not your cellphone is enabled, the hardware inside the phone is enabled for GPS location and the second being whether or not your service provider allows GPS location. I know for a fact that Sprint Nextel has a service package on their monthly data plan. It's called Family Locator and for $10 a month on each of your lines basically what you can do is track members of your family, see where they are, whether or not they're going to school or going to work or where they should be and like I said that's $10 a month and after that what it will allow you to do is go on line to a website like this one here and check out whether or not that person is where they should be or even whether or not that phone was stolen. You could also locate the phone and see where it is. For the iPhone there is a piece of technology called MobileMe and what that will do is allow you to go online on the Internet and track down where your iPhone is, if it has been lost or stolen. This isn't really that efficient if you're trying to track somebody because it only gives you one exact location. It doesn't continuously update. You have to hit a button every time you want to change the location, see if that phone has moved. It's better if you have lost your phone or if you think you have misplaced it. It will tell you where the phone is but in terms of tracking the phone it's not really that efficient. The best bet would be to use something like The Family Locator product that Sprint has available. I'm Ben from The Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. That's how you track a cellphone. Thanks for watching.
