MetroPCS provides a lost phone finder service via its MetroTotalProtection.com website and mobile application.
In addition, some MetroPCS phones may include additional apps, such as the FindMyiPhone app for Apple iPhones, to assist in locating lost devices.
Customers of MetroPCS who need to locate a misplaced phone can log on to the carrier’s Metro Total Protection website with their phone number and password to locate their phones either by sounding an alarm or by displaying the phone’s location on a map. The Sound Alarm button at the top of the page activates the audible alert, whereas the Locate Phone button opens the map. If desired, the Locate Phone map can also provide turn-by-turn directions to the phone’s location. Additionally, the website can be used to lock the phone and delete its contact list. To utilise these features, the Metro Total Protection app must be installed on the lost device.
Generally, phones with alternative location features function similarly to the Metro Total Protection app, though they may offer additional features. For instance, the FindMyiPhone app enables users to lock their iPhones and display a message with a callback number on the screen, allowing the owner to be contacted if the phone is found.
