What if you were being tracked by your cell phone?Page 9 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
I understand completely!!!

My ex was tracking me by my cell phone he bought me because mine broke and it was a "gift". He also was looking at my laptop from his office an hour away. This is what I had to do:
Completely wipe out your computer and reboot it. Call your cell phone carrier and get passwords and such changed ASAP! Because I didn't know this, but you can get on the internet and get into your cell and see text messages. I was horrified and after I took care of everything, I feel much better. Its an awful feeling to feel stalked. I hope I have helped you.

I was on a first date with a guy, and didn't know how to get to the place we were going. I called him to tell him I was running late... next thing I know he's tracking me. I don't know what they have, but there is some little device that does that. My phone didn't have GPS that I was aware of, but who knows.

Needless to say he creeped me out and I never saw him anymore. Tracking is weird. I'm a girl, not an endangered porpoise.

Eyeofthecamera.

WOW,, that was an excellent and informative post - Thanks

Also, one other thing to consider.. If you have something like EZpass, that provides a pretty good record of your comings and goings if you use toll roads. There was a local case recently where a guy got nailed in a divorce proceeding for boinking his gf. The expass records became part of the proceedings and showed he was on the wrong (or right) side of the river.

One nasty thought. If it ever hit the fan, grab your EzPass and stick in on the trailer of a tractor trailer. People will be looking for you in iowa while you are in Maine. :)

Gotta run- I'm going to read up on Faraday cages. ...

How does it relate to the premise of the opening post, exactly?

What ChrisofPA and I say is relevant in that it supports the supposition that such tracking is possible.

Sarah makes one more...
Don't blame the geeks for being smart, and I won't blame the idiots for being stupid.

There are apps for iPhone, which let you broadcast your position, so others can find you.

Women need to be kept track of. You just never know who else they are seeing!

wait a minute...could your actions cause his behavior? I'm asking? You didnt say, do you lie to him? Have you cheated, previously? Is this all him or do you tell us and HIM "half truths?" just wondering

Do you post to Facebook or any other social media from your phone? If so, you need to change the settings on the phone or it posts where you were when you created the post.

I was chatting on FB with my niece while she and her husband were on there way to my place and I kept telling her what town she was in and it was driving her nuts that I could tell where she was the whole trip. Needless to say, when she got here, they turned the tracking off on her phone.

Beyond that, I would say that it is not likely that she put a tracking device on your phone, but if you are worried have your provider walk you through resetting your phone to the factory settings.

The reason for this thread is that I just found out that my boyfriend has been tracking my location He told me where I was the other day and how he knew by tracking me, I felt so violated not because I have anything to hide but that's over board for me. To think what else is being tracked, I don't even want to say certain things on the phone.what would you do if this was done to you?

hope to use your cellphone to make a 9-1-1 call? They won't be able to find the location of your emergency without GPS (they can try to triangulate you by the cellphone towers, but that takes time to end up with just a guess). so if you disable any tracking device, be sure to tell your loved ones so when they try to use it to save your life, they can re-establish tracking, or you'll get the "benefit" of your own paranoia.

I grew up without the electronic leash. didn't leave the house without telling my parents when I'd be home, and not wearing a device called a wrist watch, which told me exactly what time I better stop doing what I was doing and head home. Cellphones make it easy for people to be rude and call at the last minute to see if I'm free, rather than plan ahead and call and make plans (take my word for it, when people can't call you to cancel--they tend not to cancel so much). the best concert in history was Woodstock...hippies figured out they should be there, found the place, and had no benefit of cellphone, twitter, Internet to help them locate the time and place. what equivalent events have occured in the time of cellphone? :o lol And let's not even discuss bosses being able to reach you on the weekend...

cellphones are neat toys taken from Star Trek's idea of the communicator, and they are here to stay. But its funny how if you make life simple, it tends to have less stress in it--which gives you more time for the real things in life.

Very much agree. I have never had a reason to carry a cell phone, I don't have one and I doubt I ever will have one. Cell phones make multi-tasking easier but unfortunately, most people just aren't very good at multitasking. What ends up being then, is that cell phones have become the catch-all remedy to running full steam ahead into chaos.

Without the "convenience" of cell phones, I think people will become better planners.

The technology is out there to block cell phone signals.....not sure if it will ever become mainstream....
Now if a gf was tracking me and I found out about it....boy would I have fun with that... you know you could take your cell to a Cemetery and leave it there!!!!

Get some police involved. That sort of stocking behavior is sick and should be dealt with via legal action.
