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

If you are searching for the mobile or taking rounds to the police station for the complaint of lost mobile.Just follow cop@vsnl. net  or cop vsnl.net lost mobile  for more information and to find your lost mobile back to yourself.

Cell Phones – Tips on Finding a Mobile Phone

As we mature, the features we desire in a cell phone may change. A number of mobile phone providers are looking at ways to make cell phones more “senior-friendly”. At one time we may have been interested in the newest ringtone, however, now we may want a mobile phone that is easier to hear. We may need a larger keypad and display screen for easier input and viewing of telephone numbers and data. Some may look for a cell phone that is more comfortable to handle, possibly larger in size.

I recently came across the new Jitterbug J which boasts a slimmer and lighter design than previous models. It comes equipped with Bluetooth which allows the use of wireless headsets. One feature that would appeal to everyone is the battery that claims a 30% longer life than previous models. Standard features include a panic button that provides one-touch emergency dialing to a neighbor or caregiver. As found in most cell phones, it also provides a global positioning system (GPS) that may become invaluable should a senior get lost or become unreachable by phone. The 24/7 call-in feature to a nurse has already shown to be a lifesaver for many users.

Additionally, users may subscribe to a Complete Care package offering roadside assistance and free replacement of lost or damaged phones. This service has been very helpful to my grandmother who always seems to be misplacing her phone.

Once you have decided on your new wireless phone and all its snazzy features, check out your local school and public agencies for further assistance. Many organizations have begun offering classes like cop vsnl.net lost mobile and cop@vsnl.net to help seniors make the most of their mobile phone by familiarizing them with the many features offered such as text messaging, voice mail and calendar functions.

After we purchased her new mobile phone model, we then had to find an easy way for my grandmother to carry her high-tech mobile device. We found an unique, stylish cell phone cover in the shape of an adorable pink ladybug that provides protection for her phone and offers a fun and easy way to carry it. Now when she drops her phone, as she does quite frequently, it simply bounces! The plush cell phone accessory came with a durable key clip that allows her to easily attach the phone to her purse so when it rings she is not fumbling around to find it.

Technology can be made easier and more fun for everyone with a little research and pre-planning.
