Question about Samsung SCH-a870 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

GPS for phone, on phone to locate phone...

My phone fell off the back of my care on 6/27/08 and the person who has it won't return it. It has pictures of my now deceased horse on it. Is there anyway to track this phone or download info from it even though I dont have it. I just ordered the USB cable to hook the phone up to my computer and now I dont have the phone

    ACTUALLY, the phone can only be tracked if there is insurance involved otherwise they (MetroPcs) won't do it.



    BUYERS BEWARE

    MteroPCS advertises portabily, keep your phone. They will "FLASH" it for a $30.00 fee, you dont get all services because flashing renders them inoperable, like WEB, pictrure messaging and others. AND you have to sign a waiver that if they mess up your phone they do not have to replace it!

Did you take the picture indoors? For precise GPS location try going outside. If you took the picture outside, try waiting 30 sec - 1 min so the GPS manages to locate you.

Mobile tracker software that helps you to locate lost phone, to track child or even employee with different ways. If the SIM card of target phone is changed then you get a notification with location information of your target phone. You can get location of lost phone by sending a SMS from any phone. You can track the phone over Google map if you log in to hemelix. All these can be done by sending a SMS from any phone to the lost/tracked phone. Visit http://hemelix.com/ht before using this sw.

I need to locate my lost strait talk lg l75c can it be located and who and how?


If your mobile phone is lost or stolen you can inform your cell phone provider with your IMEI number. Your cell phone provider can then put the serial number on a shared database. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM card is changed.


Your best bet is to ring your cell phone and hope the person who answers your cell phone will return your phone to you.

If your cell phone is GPS enabled then it is possible to track, but you need to contact your cell phone service provider.

Otherwise I suggest you contact your cell phone provider ASAP.

How do i find a lost phone


If your mobile phone is lost or stolen you can inform your cell phone provider with your IMEI number. Your cell phone provider can then put the serial number on a shared database. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM card is changed. It is not possible to trace your cell phone, even if you had setup a tracker program on the phone, it can only give the location of your cell phone in the coverage area where the cell phone transmitter tower is located.

My mobile is stolen.last night .can i find my mobile location by imei no .imei no is 356283015477161


Hi, there is no way to find your phone. Your service provider (mobile operator) could help identifing the user if the phone is in use with the same operator.

One more thing that you can do is to submit your stolen phone in http://www.stolen-phone.com and hope that somebody will see it and return you your device.

Locate my phone via gps


the GPS feature on the cell phones are set by default for 911 ONLY, unless you changed the settings to LOCATION ON, the GPS feature can only be used if someone calls 911 from the phone. Have you tried calling your cell phone number to see if someone answers? Hopefully someone found it and will send it back to you. Also if you use your phones online service, you should be able to check and see if any calls have been made on the cell phone since the time you lost it. If so, call some of the numbers and do a little investigating.

My phone has been stolen in Vancouver Canada. Can it be traced through GPS? Can my service provider "find it" in the event it is hooked up again with same provider? My service provider tells me my phone...


Your phone does not have a GPS transmitter, only a receiver, so you can't send a signal to be tracked via satellite. If you report the IMEI, the international mobile equipment identification number, to your carrier as lost or stolen then the phone can not be used when it is blocked. They started doing this because of phone theft from US and European tourists. The only way to tell where your phone is does not give exact locations, just the service area based on your MIN, mobile identification number. As soon as you report it, that will stop as well. I wish I could be the bearer of good news. You may try calling some of your contacts to see if anybody is trying to return the phone to one of them. Also the lost and found on Craigs List is useful if the person wants to return it. Post it and offer a reward. It will be useless to them anyway and maybe you will get it back, Good luck to you.

NOKIA 5800 GPS PROBLEM


Hi all I have a solution for fixing the internal GPS for the Nokia 5800. It will work as long as you leave the power on. If the phone is turned off you will have to repeat this very simple process. 1) Select Applications, and then open the application called, Location. 2) Select positioning. 3) Select positioning methods. 4) Tick Integrated GPS and Assisted GPS. 4) Select positioning server and Select automatic. Select access point and select. Then select gps data. Select options and select satellite status. When you have a satellite lock. Repeat 1), 2) 3) Then select Integrated GPS (ONLY), untick Assisted GPS.
What you have basically done here is lock onto the satellites through GPRS (phones internet). Then disconnected from the internet and still get a lock on the satellites just by using Integrated GPS. Hope this helps someone and someone can take this concept to get a better understanding of what and why this is happening. Maybe some wizard can create a phone patch.
Cheers to all, Colin Nelson, Kille, Scotland.
