Can an iPhone with no phone number be pinged?
I don't think a cellphone can be PING regardless, even if it is attached to the system. PING only talks TCP
Ok, I was asking because neither of my iphones have a number. They pinged this persons cell http://www.kiro7.com/news/local/wha...ssing-from-popular-north-bend-trail/580738447
to locate her. . I did google the question but no help, thank you
AHH. A TCP PING is not the same as a Cellphone ping. We have no tools on our PCs to perform the latter.
Cellphones are always looking for "Where's the closest cell tower" and to the providers, they refer to this as a PING.
If at least two towers receive this PING from the same phone, then navigational triangulation becomes possible.
Ok, thank you
BTW: Sonar and Radar operate on the 'reflected wave' principle and the reflection itself is often referred to as a Ping.
It might be doable and usually it is not, if your phone is connected to your local home network.
Find and identify your apples/androids/windows phone mac address with ip.
If it works your phone will pickup on it and identify the request, you could visit what is my ip address.com on your phones browser.
Normally, a mobile device which is not connected via WiFi will not be 'pingable' as it has no IP address. Once connected, these devices will respond as expected.
There's a cool tool 'Netgear Genie' that will graphically display all devices attached to the router, and you can pick the IP from there. It will notify you whenever there's a new device attached to the network
Interesting @jobeard , thanks
