Is it possible to pinpoint your location with nothing more than a cellphone number? Absolutely.
Your smart phone always knows where you are. And thanks to the Life360.com service, powered by technology from a company called Loc-Aid, a parent can locate a child by her phone number or even an elderly parent who has wandered away from home.
Indeed, network location services can save lives, protect children, and enable business services -- and they're available to anyone.
Thanks to a free online demo at Loc-Aid.com, you can type in the cellphone number of anyone in the United States and find their precise location in just a few seconds.
Agreements with wireless carriers like T-Mobile and Sprint let Loc-Aid triangulate position using cellular towers and the GPS signal on your phone. In urban areas, the results are more precise than rural areas where there are fewer cell towers.
