    How do I disable parental GPS tracking on Sprint (family locator)?

    So basically, my parents track me every single time i leave the house using Sprint's family locator. Is there any way i can turn this off so they wont be able to track me?

    Or does anyone have any ideas of what I can do so i wont be tracked? I dont really like the idea of not bringing my phone with me, cause i DO like calling them to let them know where i am and that im doing fine! I'm 17 by the way. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

    Don't take the phone. Tell them you'll be happy to check in with them during nights out when they loosen their grip a little.

    Go to your settings and turn your GPS location off..thats what i did..im 17 too..it doesnt exactly allow them NOT to track your phone but it will throw off your location..

    I am 30 and my problem is that my boyfriend has this all set up to track me every where go. The only thing I have been able to do in order to keep from being tracked is turn my phone off. I usually say that it was a battery thing but, really it is a control issue. If you leave your phone on they will be able to look up online in your data to see where you have been anytime your phone is on.

    Pay for your own phone and no one will track you.

    ^ why u asking someone what there doin?^ ur a creep. I work at sprint. Turn off gps and data. They can't track u. If they look online it will say "unavailable" parents call bitching all the time bc there kids figure it out. Bs u have to do this in the first place. Work hard, save money and get your own phone, car, etc. Its a liberating feeling. Trust me. I was in your shoes when I was 17 and it sucked REAL BAD. Good luck.
