After hearing an advert on the radio I thought would pay a visit to locateAmobile. But I
guess that as the system uses GSM mobile masts for area is not highly accourate. Here is the demo message (obscuring my number) I received after sending “where am i” to the locateAmobile Short-Code :- 89222.

Located in the vicinity of :
Mitcham Junction
Approx:900m away.

Also you have to pay ?1.00 pm for each mobile registered and then pay for each search you undertake.

Inaccuracies due to GSM masts:-
? Postcode is wrong (SM5 is Carshalton not Mitcham)
? I live in Sutton not Mitcham
? Says I am 900m away, but am nearly 5km away from Mitcham.

  1. Seeing this made us wonder if you do reviews of software? Because our new product for Symbian phones named ‘callflash’ was created for the 7650 (and has now expanded to other Nokia phones);
    It lets you record and send fast cheap voice messages to any other mobile or landline plus scheduled messages and messages to groups. We have 30 day trial versions in 10 languages at http://www.callflash.com and because you are a 7650 lover as we are (the best yet and we have really worked all of them to exhaustion – how could they start so well and do downhill?) if you want a free full version it would be a pleasure to let you have it.
    Just mail us at ‘freeflash@btinternet.com’ with your IMEI number and we’ll send you one.
    Whatever, we wish you well.
