Locator programs or GPS tracking programs let you track mobile phones through GPS technology. Verizon Wireless now offers a service called the Family Locator, which is designed for families to track each other's Verizon cell phones.

This service from Verizon is great IF the phone you want to track is a family members phone. This will enable you to know where anyone in your family is at any time. Verizon Wireless does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, including location information. The main downside to this service is all you can track is the persons location. Fairly limited.

What if you want to track a Verizon phone from a NON family members?

For example, what if you suspect your boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on you? What do you do then if your boyfriend or girlfriend has a Verizon phone? In addition, for a tracking application to perform such a task tracking the location of their cell phone is great and can provide you with a lot of information but only being able to track the person's physical location is going to give you limited information about them.

These applications allow you to track all of a phones calls, text messages, e-mails sent and received, photos and videos that are captured by the camera built into the Verizon phone.
