Buddy Beacon friend locator is coming to other carriers

Feb 13, 2008

I love Helio’s Buddy Beacon and I use it to track down Vincent or Daniel from time to time making sure they are being good. Buddy Beacon lets you locates your friends on a map via the GPS in your handset.

Up until now, only Helio customers are able to use this nifty service, however it will soon be available to others. Helio sold Buddy Beacon to uLocate Communications last month.

uLocate Communications has opened up Buddy Beacon to other carriers and service provider. Sprint, Boost, Alltell and Metro PCS will soon be offering Buddy Beacon. Each carrier will set pricing for Buddy Beacon.
