Note : Location Services are designed to locate the phone of another person. For the service to work, the phone has to be switched on with network coverage. Location services aimed at children are intended to complement, but not be a substitute for, normal parental supervision. They give information about the whereabouts of a child's phone and, in conjunction with other types of communication, such as phoning or texting, can help parents keep in touch with their children.
