Does anyone know if a Bright side non-smart phone can have the Family Locator on it?

Great news! The Brightside is definitely compatable with the Family Locator.

Re: Family Locator

I use my Samsung Brightside to access Family Locator.  As Administrator,  I go to "Mobile Web" and log in at http:\\ to "Locate" a family member, view their location history, etc.  I also receive text notifications

on my Brightside from Family Locator for Updates I have set up previously..  For example:  (by Location) Anytime a family member arrives or departs within 1/2 mile of a certain address, or  For example:  (by Time)  I receive a text everyday at 10:00, 12:00, and 2:00 letting me know where that family member is at that time.All of that is without

t havine app installed.

As far as Locating the Brightside, I'm pretty sure the app has to be installed for that.  With the app installed, I receive an annoying message  (about the ability of your phone to be located) and an annoying beep,every time I turn my phone on. .
