Hi zammbi,

I checked the url what you posted. but i cant get the exact solution from it.
Actually what i want means, " GadgetTrak - Yet Another Anti-Theft Solution For Android.GadgetTrak offers theft-recovery services for GSM cell phones. GadgetTrak can trace stolen cell phones."

I think , now i can clear to you all people what i eaxctly want.
Please reply me as soon as possible. I am waiting for the reply..... :roll:

Thanks.

My link was just a funny one, if you ran it you would of seen. Its never like the movies, just typing in a number and able to track it. I guess its possible to track a cell phone if its running the needed program though.

Hi zammbi ,

To check out the Tracking position, is the internet connection needed?

Thanks............

Yep, I guess you would need the internet.
There are many programs on Windows Mobile which track cell phones(GPS/internet needed) by installing a program on the phone and then sending the location to a server.

Sorry can't help you there.
I haven't really started developing for Android yet.
But Parallel Kingdom uses the same basic idea: http://www.anddev.org/parallel_kingdom_-_mmorpg_for_android-t936.html
So maybe you could ask them for examples.
