free-cell-phone-tracking-software

There are several different versions of free cell phone tracking software out there. Some of these claim to be free but actually come with a nominal monthly fee attached to using their services. However, whether you have cell phone tracking software that is free or you use a service which is provided by your carrier, it is one of the best tools you will ever have at your finger tips. There are many reasons cell phone tracking is advantageous. This application can be used for a variety of purposes.

Can All Cell Phones Be Tracked?

Now that we’ve discussed the fact that cell phone tracking is possible, let us look at the which cell phones can be tracked and why. First, it is important to point out that not all cell phone tracking applications require the use of a smart phone. Just about all Sprint and Nextel phones can be tracked through the cell phone’s network, rather than using the GPS satellites which are typically used in cell phone tracking. This means that Sprint and Nextel users may be able to use the network’s locator services without having to own a smart phone.

Types of Cell Phone Tracking Applications Available

All smart phones have some sort of cell phone tracking software and service that is compatible with them. Some of these services are free and some are not. Most cell phone tracking software is windows based and can be used not only from your home computer or laptop but also from your smart phone. The basic premise is that the software runs at all times on the cell phone you are tracking. Most cell phone tracking software will work on just about any smart phone you have, whether it is an iPhone, Android, Blackberry or any other variation. In addition, there are also GPS tracking software applications that can be installed on laptops, notebooks and a number of other devices.
