Family locator says my phone is unavailable.

I just activated Family Locator this afternoon.  All phones have been activated and show up in the dashboard.  However, I am the account holder and it wont even locate my phone says its Unavailable.  My daughters phone says can't be located at this time try back in 5 minutes.  It has been saying that for 3 hours.  All phones say UNAVAILABLE.  I am starting to get frustrated, its expensive and it should work.  All GPS locators are turned on.  PLEASE HELP
