I just wanted to let you know that you can get the Buddy Beacon application on a handful of carriers now. It's available on the iPhone as well as on Sprint, MetroPCS, Alltel....check out where.com/buddybeacon for more information.
I'm leaving Verizon in a month and trying to decided on a new carrier. I like Helio, but I'm afraid of signing a two year contract with an MVNO. I really like the idea of the Buddy Beacon service they offer, mostly for keeping track of kids and possibly help in locating a lost phone (I understand that it doesn't give an exact location).
So does anyone know of a comparable service to Buddy Beacon offered by another carrier? I've seen something similar with Verizon for keeping track of kids, but it's an expensive add on and only works with certain phones, and I hate Verizon.
