Telstra Locator

Can someone please explain to me how to properly use it, and asap please. My cat found an open window and I am really worried. And the app is taking forever to open on my phone. I've restarted the phone twice already :/ The last update it gave me was like 40 minutes ago..

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Telstra Locator

The Wi-Fi tags use the Telstra Locator Bluetooth Community and compatible parts of the Telstra Air Network for location updates. The Telstra Locator Bluetooth Community relies in part on a crowd-sourced community of users whose devices help locate items. 

 

So basically, it needs to be within range of a Telstra Air hotspot, or somebodies phone that has Telstra locator activated on it.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: Telstra Locator

Thank you for the info. I did manage to locate him, I can hear his beeper go off but he is hiding really well.. Under a house it sounded like.. 

How would I join others in my area that has the locator, so that we can help each other if needed, or is that possible?

Re: Telstra Locator

If somebody has the Locator service, then they are automatically helping. Unfortunately, there aren't many people using the service so coverage will be spotty.
