GPS on T-Mobile


Mar 11, 2004, 1:13 PM
I wanna know if there's a way to put GPS Software on T-Mobile phone. If so, what phones can I do it on. If can't be done, how can I go on tracking a T-Mobile phone? Last but not least, I know most of the new Nextel phones have GPS Software included in them; is T-Mobile comming out with GPS software included phones? Rolling Eyes

Sad T-Mobile doesn't use GPS to track their phones- they use "tower triangulation". In other words, they compare signals from three towers to locate you. Companies like Verizon that use GPS do use satellite technology. No way to add it as they don't use that technology.

Since T-Mobile don't use GPS. Is there any way I can track a T-Mobile phone by Tower Triangulation?

Nextel offers two tracking solutions - GPS and tower triangulation. Mobile Locator uses triangulation and is inexpensive. GPS tracking is roughly $20.00 a month and is offered on a few different handsets.
