Lost phone will gps still work?

I recently just misplaced my phone, or it was stolen. Not sure but is it possible for sprint to use gps to tell me if its near my house?

Hi kuchek, If you have TEP Asurion can attempt to locate it if GPS is enabled, if you have no TEP and GPS is enabled you can try Family locator.

Is it an "Android"? If it is there is an app in the market you can remotely install to try and locate it. It's called "Plan B".

If by "admins" you mean Sprint Admins, no, that functionality is only used with local law enforcement and our corporate security for incidents where bodily harm may be involved.  Your best bet is the app from the market called plan b.  It may take more than the 10 mintues to get the email based on how well the GPS can be seen.
