Great question! This is a feature not available yet in the iphone devices. Precise location is not available, only course location. Learn more about the feature https://wbillpay.verizonwireless.com/vzw/nos/safeguards/SafeguardProductDetails.action?productName=f... .

You should be using icloud to locate an iPhone.

if you are using a non iphone to locate the iphone, try Find iDevices in the Google play store.  The full version is 2.99, no subscription required.

IT also doesn't require access to the other persons phone, like Family base does.
