In Brief: Sprint with kid-tracking system via mobile

Apr 13, 2006

Sprint launched a service to allow parents to use a phone to pinpoint the location of a child on a map, complete with address and surrounding landmarks.

The family locator is "a valuable tool that can help parents and guardians have a better sense of their children's whereabouts when they're apart," said Danny Bowman, vice president of product marketing.

The service is available for download on 17 handset models and can be used to locate 30 SPS-enabled models. Up to four phones can be registered for the service for $10 per month.
