Default GPS Tracking via Text Message

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any software available for AT&T BB Curve with GPS that allows for GPS tracking via text (SMS/MMS) message? Ideally, I'm looking for something that will automatically send a current location of the phone via MMS/SMS. I am aware of software that can do this via the Internet, but I'm looking for something that is specific to SMS/MMS.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I am not aware of that application.

You might look around our GPS Mapping section of this forum

Thanks, came up dry there too. I'm guessing one probably doesn't exist!

This is not SMS/MMS, but the application FindIt does near to what you are looking for via email. Among other things, with FindIt you can send an email to your Curve with a special subject and FindIt will reply back with GPS coordinates along with a link to Yahooo Maps of the Curve's location, assuming the gps is enabled and functioning.

RobLock can do this. So it is possible to have the phone send it's GPS coordinates via SMS/MMS.

Has RobLock recently been updated to add this capability? I have RobLock installed on my Curve and have not seen this functionality. I checked the PDF doc supplied and GPS is not mentioned anywhere. Here are the publicized features:
> SMS notification on SIM Change to predefined number
> Recover contacts from lost phone
> Remote WIPE memory card
> Delete contacts, sms, email, photos and videos on the lost device
> Uninstall Protection
> Auto Hides on unauthorized SIM insertion
> Complete Stealth operations
> Unlimited SIM card support
> Does not affect mobile performance in normal operation
> Tiny installation footprint
> Easy Configuration
> Password Protected Settings
