Use the Power of GPS to Track Down a Lost Mobile

In a recent study people were quizzed about how they used their mobile phones and importantly how they would cope if they were not able to have constant access to it. Interestingly most people that took part in the survey feared they would cope really badly without their phones and without the ability to do things like checking email, to check up on children or loved ones or just to call home in the middle of a weekly shop to see if certain products needed replenishing.

With the advancement of technology, many new mobile phones now have a built in GPS receiver. This means that your phone can find out where you are, or rather where it is, by communicating with a series of satellites that orbit the earth and can pinpoint very accurately positions on the ground.

Most applications that are built into your mobile or that you can download, such as Google Maps, use this technology to help you navigate from one place to another by linking into maps and related information. But it is also possible to have your mobile track its position using the GPS service and more importantly let you know where it is. This is useful if you lose the phone, or if it is stolen although this use could also be applied to help keep track of your children, for example.

So how do you go about implementing such a service? One provider that offers a mobile phone tracking service is Phonelocator. Download their application onto your mobile phone and it will send information on its current position which can then be viewed on their website. The service is free to use, although as the information is sent using the data service on your phone, your network operator may charge you. If you have an unlimited data use plan this should not cause you a problem.

There are other providers of similar services, some of which can work even if your mobile does not have a GPS receiver built in, although as it works by estimating the location from the nearest mobile phone masts, the accuracy is less precise, but is still accurate to a few hundred meters. Unlike Phonelocator, most of these providers will charge you to use their service and do not have real time tracking, but some offer a free trial period which should enable you to test a number of services and find if there is one that is right for you
