Alltel offers WaveMarket's Family Finder

Alltel Wireless is now offering Axcess Family Finder, a GPS-based service powered by WaveMarket that lets parents determine the location of their child's handset via their own phone or PC. According to Alltel, Axcess Family Finder features interactive maps to monitor or guide family members to specific locations, enabling parents to identify sites their children frequent (e.g. movie theaters and parks) by using the Axcess Family Finder website--the site also supports related security measures like Scheduled Checks, which tracks registered locations at specific times of day. Parents may also sign up to receive text alerts contain their child's present location. The service is available for $9.99 a month per child application.
