Full Answer

Make sure the prepaid phone has GPS because that is vital to the tracking function. Turn on the phone's Internet function, and turn the volume on everything to zero. Next, register an Insta-Mapper account, download the Insta-Mapper app to the phone, and launch the application. Input the device ID that the registration gave and give the phone permission to access GPS. Hide the phone if necessary, and use the Insta-Mapper website to track it as needed.
