If you havenít tried the Sprint Family Locator or you arenít a Sprint customer, you may just end up switching to Sprint after you read what I have to say about this service. This is Sprintís version of a cell phone tracking application and although it is not free, it has a very good feature that makes it worth paying for. Sprint only charges $5.00 if you want to use this application and it is definitely worth it.
Many people who use cell phone tracking applications already, may be wondering why they would want to pay for a service that they can get free with many of the other cell phone tracking applications. The main reason is that the Sprint Family Locator is the only cell phone tracking application that has a feature called ďautomatic location checksĒ. This feature will allow you to automatically check the location of someone who is in your cell phone tracking network without you needing to take any action at all.
Automatic location checks is quite easy to configure. All you need to do is log into the Sprint Family Locator system and select the phone that you want to set automatic location checks up for. At that point you will choose the phone, and the time of day that you want a automatic location checks sent to you. You will then get a text message sent to you at that particular time of day with the exact location of that cell phone. Let me take a second and discuss why this is a beneficial feature and why I think you should use it as well.
In my business, I have several delivery drivers that must keep a pretty tight schedule. It can be quite difficult trying to keep up with scheduling and to letting my clients know whether or not their deliveries will be on time. With the Sprint Family Tracker automatic location checks enabled, I get predetermined text messages sent to me that lets me know the exact location of my drivers. This has been very beneficial because I get a message letting me know if they are not on schedule. Then, I can call the client and let them know that the driver will be there late. Itís never good to have deliveries arrive late but I can put the clients at ease by calling them in advance and letting them know of delays, instead of the delivery just showing up late.
