With just one click, the service enables kids to quickly and easily send an SMS with their location to family and friends. As an SMS with a link to a map, the check-in may be viewed from any Web browser-enabled device on any network.

Exclusive to T-Mobile, FamilyWhere Check In expands the functionality of FamilyWhere, a location-based suite of services that helps customers keep track of the most important people in their lives. Upgrading will give families with active kids greater peace of mind with the following features:

+ On-demand location. Easily locate all devices on your account any time they are connected to T-Mobile’s network.
