Yes We Can

To steel the catch phrase of the times, although I will add to it ...if government will get out of the way.

Both of my sons have iPhones and it is by mutual agreement that they track each other so it is possible but by consent, now, wasn't that easy?

I think there is a service on AT&T for this - for a monthly charge of course - but the phone has to be on your account, permission must be granted, etc., etc.

There's an app called Device locator (www.device-locator.com) for 4.99 it's a steal for avoiding the att family map fees. It keeps your location tracks, which is what I've been looking for for quite some time. Google maps works with anyone listed as your friends, but only shows location at a point in time. Device Locator can store the history via google latitude too.

Since we're answering a three year old thread, might as well throw FindMyiPhone into the mix.

Apple offers Find My Friends for free, anyone tried it?
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/find-...466122094?mt=8

And of course iCloud.com has Find my iPhone.
