    And Jeffery has a time machine. He can go back and follow Danae and Lucy into the forest.

    OK, she’s turned off her phone. It must have been off all the time. No reason to assume she’s lost. Inform the twitterverse which will be miffed and go follow someone else.

    On a serious note, folks, NEVER TRUST YOU WILL HAVE CELL RECEPTION! We have a place with magnetic anomoly that blanks out all signals, radio and phones won’t work even when you can SEE the repeater site!

    If Danae doesn’t have any signal, pinging her phone won’t help.

    I’ve got a Samsung Galaxy I hardly ever use. Extremely poor service here in northernmost Maine. They built a new tower on top of the hill behind my house just two miles away. That was two years ago and they have yet to install phone equipment on it. Go figure.

    @EGRAYJAMES That’s because the potatoes will block any signal up there

    Punching the OFF button only shuts off the screen, everything else is still running. You have to hold the button down until the ’Power off?" appears to actually shut the phone down.

    Android phones, like many smartphones, also use Assisted GPS (AGPS). This allows them to compute satellite position using the network and get the location faster. The Android GPS can also get a location without cell towers. It is common to think that a cell phone can’t get a location without cell service.

    GPS works without anything. The iPhone has a GPS receiver that works without anything else.

    Now turning off the phone would in most cases shut off access to the phone, but based on what we know of Jeffrey’s abilities and the fact that he is probably better the NSA’s abilities he should have no problem finding Danae.

    This may not stop a sophisticated spy agency. But I think the catch is, it would have to have previously installed the right software in advance … something that mimicked a power-down sequence while keeping the underlying systems running — the same sort of “back door” modification the NSA has already been outted for pressuring some U.S. tech companies to make in their operating systems.

    I wrote this more than five hours ago,but was somehow disconnected:Sigh… GPS/GLONASS/Galileo: they are all totally passive. There is NO GPS signal going out from your device, it only listens to the signals broadcast (BROAD-cast!) from the satellites. You can find out remotely where a device is only if the device is connected to a network, such as the GSM or cellphone net or the internet, AND you can connect to it that way AND it allows you to get at its position. Even Jeffrey can’t do it any other way.
