To track the location of a Sprint phone, register for the Sprint Family Locator facility offered by the company, and click on the Sprint phone number that is to be tracked in the account created. The locator service then indicates the phone's location.
To register for the Sprint Family Locator facility, access the Sprint PCS website, type in the primary phone number in the Sprint account, and select the billing method. Sprint offers the locator service for free for the first 15 days after which a nominal amount is charged every month.
After registering for the service, sign in to the Sprint account using the primary phone number and the password created, and select the Sprint phone number to be tracked. The location of the phone can be tracked as many times as desired using this service. To do this, click on Refresh.
When the Sprint Family Locator service is used, a text message is sent to the phone being tracked letting the user know that their phone has been located. This setting can be altered through the Settings menu. The user receives a text message every month informing them that his phone's location may be tracked.
This locator service can be used for tracking only Sprint phones in a Sprint account.
