Location Setting

Your phone is equipped with a Location setting for use in connection with location-based services.

The Location feature allows the network to detect your position. Turning Location off will hide your location from everyone except 9-1-1.

Note: Turning on Location will allow the network to detect your position using GPS technology, making some Sprint applications and services easier to use.

To enable your phone’s Location setting feature:

  1. Tap home key > all apps icon > settings app icon Settings.
  2. Tap Location.
  3. Tap the On/Off switch to turn location services on and off.
  4. Under Location sources, tap Mode to select the location mode you want. For example, for a better estimate of your location, choose High accuracy. To save battery power, choose Battery saving.

When you turn the Location setting feature on, the phone displays the location on status icon icon on the status bar. When you turn Location setting off, the phone displays the location off status icon icon.

Important: Turning off a location service means no applications on your phone will collect your location data through that location service. However, third party applications may collect — and your phone may continue to provide — location data through other services, including through Wi-Fi and signal triangulation.
