    Verizon can ping your phone and get a gps location as long as it is turned on because you can't turn gps tracking for 911. BUT they probably won't do that for your, it is hard enough to get them to do it for us when we are trying to find someone in trouble.

    I am not sure where i seen this at or read about it but {i want to say modern marvels} i heard that all smartphones have a chip built in that even if shutoff. a signal can be sent to the phone to pull the gps location. w/o turning the phone on but it has to be a master signal from carrier.

    and i also heard the only way to defeat this is to ruin the phone ie... dropping it in a lake
