Do you know? A Silent message can be a fink for your location.

Be aware , An empty message can be a sneaker for you.

The use of Smart phone is increasing day by day in this modern era of information and technology . A recent report tells that in Pakistan the total number of mobile phone users has reached near 2 billions and about 35% of them use Smart phones. GPS and A-GPS are the common feature in the today's smart phones. They are used for navigation during driving or walking on foot. People usually use their GPS radios and constant data connection for searching an exact location of homes, resturants, shopes , banks and cafes etc.
Smartphones are technically capable of tracking our location and monitoring our activity, which is enough to raise privacy concerns among users.Some people hates to have a Smart phone due to this function. There are a few people among the smart phone users who know the fact that this function of smart phones can be tracked by using little more than a text messages. 
A Short Message Type 0, also known as a silent SMS, is used for the purpose to track the location of a particular person, and this method has been using around four years. The handset that it is sent to "must acknowledge receipt of the short message but may discard its contents", as is stated in the GSM technical specification. In other words, the sender knows that their message has been received, but the recipient may get no indication of this and the point to know here that the receivers phone doesn't beep or vibrate on receiving this message. The message doesn't appear in the SMS inbox of the mobile phone user.

Silent text messages can also be used to secretly check whether a user's phone is turned on or turned off. It is fact that there are a number of apps available on internet that allow a person to send silent messages, and one can find them easily for Android operating system from the "Play Store". However, wireless carriers and authorities also use a stealth SMS to track the approximate location of a phone with the help of data received by the cellular tower. German criminal investigation offices, for example, sent over 440 000 stealth texts over the course of 2010, and the number of the use of this service has increased since then.

So whether you believe it or not, if you have an active cell phone in your pocket, tracking your whereabouts isn't that tough even if you switch your GPS and data off. There's probably no reason to panic, of course, since the police is likely not interested in where you will have dinner in the evening. Unless you are planning on not paying for it, that is actual point . But one of your friend or your family member may locate your approximate position anytime by using such software and he can make you amaze by telling your activities when on your reaching home late night.
