Track Friends On Cell Phone Map: What phone???


Nov 19, 2008, 7:34 PM
About a week ago, I saw a TV ad for a phone that has a real time friend mapping feature. In other words, you have a group of friends programmed into your phone, then if you decide to see if your group is available to go to the movie, dinner or whatever, it will show you on a map where your friends are at that time. I didn't focus on the commercial at the time, so I can't remember what phone has this feature. Does anyone here know?

Does it really? Do they have to do any provisioning for it in billing system or is strictly an apple provided service?

Looks to be Apple Proprietary as of now.

Good, that means AT&T isn't responsible for provisioning the account with anything. Very Happy less work for me!

There is no need to buy such a precious cell phone, because now there are many softwares/apps are available at very reasonable prices that allows you to trace, spy and monitor your friend's activities through his/her cell phone. I think it s very cost effective idea to buy one of these apps/softwares due to their vast variety of features.
