How to Locate People via Their Cell Phone

By Kenyonda Bradley

Locating someone through his cell phone can give you a peace of mind, especially with children. Although, you can call to check up on him, it is not always the “cool” thing to do. Luckily, many wireless providers have gotten this message and have implemented features to help customers locate phones connected to their wireless accounts. With the use of GPS capable phones or cell towers, you can receive real-time information as to the whereabouts of a cell phone. Although you may incur a monthly charge to use this service, the benefits usually outweigh the cost.
