The most advanced phone available with amazing GPS and it has fewer GPS features?
Hope an app is coming soon.
Any word on when?
a) it's not really the most advanced phone available.
b) i'm sure there are comparable apps (like the one mentioned above). the problem is that apple has to approve EVERYTHING in it's app store. i suspect that down the road they may approve verizon's family locator....but only if verizon wants to deal with developing the app to meet apple's specs and approval. you will run into the same problem with some other excusive verizon products, like the NFL app. other smartphones can get this (on verizon's network...exclusive to verizon), but right now the iphone can't. it is basically the nfl network channel on your phone (you get their televised games, the nfl redzone channle, plus the nbc sunday night games and their other regular shceduled programing). the problem with verizon exclusive products is that apple has to approve of them before they will allow them on the iphone.
brassbalz here (although my real name is Zogduke) -- forum won't let me log in under my original name... huh, a verizon website problem...shocking.
Of course you are right... the iPhone isn't the most advanced technology.... sarcasm is lost on some.
So many more features that are lacking on the iPhone -- My Rhapsody app. was downgraded to allowing only one authorized device after getting the iPhone. What crap.
No, it won't work with the Iphone yet. I bought an Iphone 32using the advance reserve purchase program. I got the phone and 12 hours later received notice that my family locator service of 5 years had been canceled. I spent a lot of time on the phone with customer service and eventually it became clear that if your primary account number was an Iphone you could not have family locator period! I'm sure it's a software issue "switch" in the Verizon system but no one could say where, when or if it would be changed. It's a shame, I loved the phone but I sent it back. Verizon to their credit waived the restocking fee. Evidence they know they have a problem. I got a Droid 2 global and it works fine. RR
Now, I'm not supposed to know this but my husband has purchased me an iphone for Christmas. His phone and my phone are the only 2 phones on the plan (shared 1400). His phone (not an iphone) is the primary phone on the account. It is his phone that I need to be able to locate as he's a type I diabetic and last week I spent an hour driving around trying to figure out where he had pulled over because he felt he was going low and decided to pull over. Needless to say, I was in the wrong town on the wrong side of the county! So, if I used your method of moving the iphone onto an individual account, it would leave only his phone on the account and he'd be the locaTOR as opposed to the locaTEE, correct? Do you know if you need to have at least 2 phones that are both compatible on the plan?
Yes you can. If you have 2 phones on the shared plan, the non-iphone can be the family locatee and the iphone (or anyone with an internet connection..... as long as they have the password to your MyVerizon) can use the family locator website (http://products.verizonwireless.com/index.aspx?id=fnd_familylocator) and locate the non iphone.
use the Find my iPhone app that is free. Enable it on the iPhone. Then, you can login to www.icloud.com on a computer and locate the phone. It is very accurate -- within a few feet most of the time. Plus, if you lose your phone (in your house, car, etc.), you can use Find my iPhone to play a sound -- even if the phone is on silent or vibrate only.
