To find a lost phone, the phone must be turned on and in Sprint network coverage to be located. The location will be approximate and an address presented will be a reference point. You should not go to an unfamiliar address looking for your lost phone, but look for places you have visited within the reference area. The location will not be accurate enough to find a lost phone in a specific room of a house. When a phone becomes locatable, it receives a text message saying it can be located.
Note: You can only sign up for Sprint Family Locator if you are the account holder for the lost phone.
