    the phone can be located by GPS if there is a gps locater application running on the phone, sure.

    Local authorities could triangulate a cell phone's location (as long as it's on and in range of a tower) by number if they had a reason to.

    Thanks John, but unfortunately I was wondering if the tracking could be done by ME...without the individual knowing....do you happen to know if any of this spyware works

    It depends on what kind of phone it is. In almost all cases something has to be installed on the phone first though.

    the phone is a Samsung Seek...Have you ever heard of the locating someone by sending a text message and once they respond you can locate them...I am really new to this...I have been reading many forums, but I am not sure if the sources being true...if not oh well....just curious

    First time I ever heard of this. It's actually really disturbing if it was true

    At&T has that option on iphones. Have been told it is great to see where kids are.
