GPS turned off

If I have the GPS turned off on my phone can it still be tracked?

Yes, it can. I was looking through the help documents and found out that At&t uses cell towers in addition to GPS to locate phones.

Re: GPS turned off

Yes, it can be tracked, however the accuracy will be so bad, that about all you will know, is if the phone is within about a 2 mile circular area. You really need GPS to have any good accuracy.
