Is cell phone satellite tracking possible using an Android Phone, I am using Samsung Galaxy Duos in which I am searching to install an Applet that will help me for other cell phone tracking. Say if I entered a number in that app, it should track the place of the Cell Phone. Please suggest. Thanks
Cell Phone Satellite tracking using Android Phone
You cannot simply track any cell phone number by installing a certain program on your mobile. There are more things that have to be there. What you are referring to is technically termed as MPS (Mobile Positioning System), which offers one type of location based service.
There are many location based services and MPS provides one of them. Another location based service is provided by means of GPS (Global positioning system). Although MPS and GPS are different terms, they are, sort of, related. MPS depends on GPS, in fact.
Going back to your concern, the first thing you have to do is find out whether your mobile network service provider offers the MPS service. If so, then it will be in the descriptions of MPS service packages they offer that you can find out what software programs are required along with all other hardware and software requirements. For example, not all mobile sets are capable of MPS or GPS. There needs to be what is known as a GPS chipset onboard.
Please find out if your service provider offers the service and also what packages they offer, if so.
Hope it helps.
