I don't use it but it looks a good idea.

Thanks for your reply Skribble. I take it this service isn't too popular among mners but I've signed up for the free trial. Will let you know how I get on with it

That is often how they trace emergency calls made by mobiles.

I remember one story of a young girl calling 999 in distress, she did'nt give a location before hanging up, just said she was being attacked.

They traced exactly where she was from her mobile but sadly it was too late when they got there.

I'd never heard of the service. Let me know how you get on. DS1 isn't good at calling to let me know that he's going to be late.

Also, let us know if there are any hidden catches!

My kids are still too young to go anywhere without and adult, but I can imagine it is very good if you have older kids who do go out alone.
