  • If you can't logon or sms a startup of the gps, You either downloaded a useless application or it's just as useful as Android Device Security in this situation, You need i pre-set Aug 1 '16 at 21:44

There's no other way to REMOTELY ACCESS A phone other than Background Data or SMS... I could have said you open Pokémon GO and follow your balls around in circles until you find it but i went with the logical answer !..... All remote access programs made for Android use Background data or Auto sync to control the device.. This means logging into the website and pressing connect to device over data... The Only Working Alternative is a Secret SMS that gets recognized and deleted by the target program, This usually contains control words like Locate Me 46432 ... Locate-Device-Password ...etc...
