How to Find a MetroPCS Phone Using the MetroNavigator

By Candice Abrams

The MetroNavigator is an all-in-one GPS application that comes with MetroPCS phones. You will need to purchase it to use it on your cell phone. As of 2011, it costs $5 a month. MetroNavigator comes with features such as turn-by-turn directions, local searches, landmarks and phone location. You will find the phone locator handy when your phone gets lost or stolen. Instead of relying on your memory, you can rely on this application and a MetroPCS representative to help you.

Step 1

Access your phone’s main menu. Click on the "MetroNavigator" icon, which has an N on an orange ball with an upward arrow. Press the “OK” button.

Step 2

Press the down button to go to “Settings.” Select “Location” from the list of options. Press the "OK" button.

Step 3

Press the down button to select “Location On.” Press the “OK” button.

Step 4

Look at your phone’s status. It should have the MetroNavigator icon, without a red bar crossing through it.

Step 5

Contact MetroPCS at 888-863-8768. Provide your account details. Ask the representative to find out where your phone was located before the battery died.
