    I am eighteen years old and my mom started tracking my phone with T-Mobile services. Can I still be Tracked if i turn off the Location Services in Iphone 7 plus?
    Also before older adults criticize why i want it off, i wouldn't have mind if she had just told me. "Oh hija, ima start tracking your phone" before she started tracking me, it would have been fine but she did it behind my back. That's what bothers me so much.

    Lol but to answer your question I believe it still does regardless if it’s off. Maybe it’s time to get off her plan

    That is what I'm trying to save up for with the money I earn from my job, but i was wondering if it would at least stop tracking me meanwhile i save up for a phone.

    The answer to your question depends on what method is being used to track your location. For example, an app installed on your phone can be deleted or location services can be turned off. Carrier “family locator” services will work as long as your device is turned on and connected to the carrier network.

    How old are you? If you’re under 18 and/or you’re still living in her house your mother has every right to track your location, but you should at least have an open and honest discussion about how she went about things. When my kids are old enough to carry cell phones I’ll absolutely be tracking their locations but there will be a conversation with expectations (i.e. turn off location tracking and I turn off your phone that I’m paying for).

    1. Did your mom buy the iPhone you’re using?
    2. Is your mom paying your wireless bill?
    3. Are you still residing in her house?

    *IF*... the answer is yes for the first 2 questions, then you need to suck it up and deal with it. Buy your own phone and pay your own wireless bill.

    Interesting issue we didn't have when I was a kid.
    I'm kind of torn on this one. First, if you're living under your parents roof and they are paying your cell phone bill, you're kind of stuck. Let's face it, if you're not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about.
    On the other hand, you're 18 years old and an adult. Your parents need to start trusting you and allowing you to learn from your experiences (I'm not telling your parents what to do, these are just my personal thoughts).
    If I were you, I would talk to my parents adult to adult and try to work things out. Next you are old enough to get an inexpensive phone and plan and pay for it yourself. Whatever you do, be respectful of your parents. I'm sure they care about you and have good intentions.

    I wouldn't get upset with her for tracking you. She cares about you so don't take it personal.

    My wife tracks me sometimes on find my iPhone. It's all good.

    If you feel like you are ready ask her to turn it off and trust you. Otherwise, like others replied, go and get your own service and start paying your own bill.
