    Hey guys
    i have a LG VX8100 CDMA phone, does it have GPS tracking on it, because i called another country with it and they found out the exact house i was at, so is this possible, even with a blocked number ???
    any help would be appreciated to disable this
    thanks

    What country did you call, and what country are you in? That sounds illegal to me, nobody should be able to use your's phone's GPS locator except your phone company and only with your permission. The GPS in your phone is required by law for e-911 service. You might be able to "disable" it in the settings menu, but that doesn't disable the ability of the GPS to be used by 911 for location purposes. There should be information in your user manual explaining all this, and if you have lost your user manual you can download it here.

    Definately illegal.. and also probably expensive cost per minute to call internationally..
    Even with cellphone gps, it's not that accurate most of the time. I think your friends might have been playing a joke on you or something.
    No government would even issue a warrent based on cellphone gps on most cases. Always look toward reasonable doubt and emergency case excuse reasons first.
    Even Vodafone with gps, don't give 100% sucess rating.

    What service carrier?
