Cell phones are very desirable pieces of technology, especially when they are popular models. They are costly, compact and easily lost or stolen. Be prepared and load your cell phone with the appropriate software beforehand, so you can track and retrieve the cell phone if it's stolen.
- Step 1
Go to Microtechnologies to download the appropriate software to track a cell phone (see Resources).
- Step 2
Click on the green box labeled, "MicroLMTS Lost Mobile Tracking System."
- Step 3
Find "Installation Steps" in the right corner of the screen.
- Step 4
Look over the cell phone icons. Locate the specific model of your cell phone and click on the heading above it.
- Step 5
Find and click on "Installation Instructions."
- Step 6
Read over the pre-installation instructions and complete each step. When you complete each step of the "Lost Mobile Tracking System," wait for a few minutes. The software starts itself the first time. If the software does not start on it's own, restart your phone. When the software launches, register your phone.
- Step 7
Choose "Select Advance Registration Form Options Menu" from the Private Policy screen and complete the registration.
- The software notifies you when someone changes out the cell phone's SIM card. It lets you track the cell phone when it identifies a location. The software is also undetectable to thieves. There is no way to tell that it is installed on the phone.
- Notify your cell phone carrier if the phone is lost or stolen. This is especially important if you do not have tracking software installed on the phone. Your carrier can track a stolen cell phone with GPS technology if it is being used with your current SIM card.
