Doesn't work Installed on my Galaxy Nexus and it response with 'success'' after sending GPS ON message but it does not turn it on.
It does not turn on gps On my note 3 running kit kat , i receive sms saying "success" but my gps is still off
JohnW Only can turn on WiFi but doesn't turn on GPS(Location) on my Verizon LG-G3 Android 4.4.2. Which makes Cerberus useless. So no point in buying this App.
Allowed me to find phone without a problem! This app is a lifesaver. It allowed me to remotely turn on my GPS, so I could use other locating apps (also installed remotely). I highly recommend this app, and will continue to tell others about it. Please troubleshoot, as this app does WORK!!!
Galaxy S4 on Verizon Doesn't work. Sends success text back but does not turn on GPS.
Don't bother, waste Installed on Galaxy 1, tried multiple variations and adjustments to settings, nothing. Don't waste your time. Where's My Droid finds it anyway, there is no need for this app.
Does NOT work.a bogus message is received,saying gps on....but its not...and developer don't care
Does not work on samsung note Sends the fedback text that the tourning on of the gps is a success. But it does not tourne it on it just sends the message. Neither paid version works. Would give less than a star, but not possible.
Galaxy s3 Didn't work. Just got "success message" but nothing worked. Uninstalling.
Turn on wi-fi but not gps. Turn on wi-fi but not gps. Gps is a must. I have a Galaxy 3 Led from T-Mobile. Please, repair that and is going to be a 5 star app.

Doesn't work. G2 running 2.3.4 gave response of 'success' but did not actually turn on GPS. Uninstalled.
App instaled remotely on lost phone, bt sim replcd I have installed this app remotely on my lost phone. I guess the thief has removed my sim card. How do I track my phone now using this app and Track my Droid apps? Please help!
Data Enable I hope this app can enable data connection by sms. Because I always turn off my data to save battery. I'll give u 5 stars
Didn't work Got messege back saying success.....yeah ok. Not working on EVO 3D 2.3.4
Did Work Before Worked when I had my phone rooted with a different ROM, but now that I'm back with the default Samsung JB software not rooted this app says it is enabled via text confirmation, but the gps/wifi is not actually on. 2 stars for working on rooted.. Fix for GS3 JB 4.1.2 and I'll rate higher
Doesn't work on sgs2. Got a msg in reply saying "success" but gps was not enabled. Uninstalling
Only for Wifi It worked only for wifi on se xperia neo v with ICS... It will be great app if it is for GPS too as name suggests..
Driod:Worked great for "Where's My Driod" This app turned ON my WiFI and GPS which had been turned off due to my job. Turned ON my sound from Vibrate Mode so I could find my phone which was hiding under a pile of stuff. Great app! I'll be donating to your app when I get home from work.
Great, where's the guide button?! Oi, why do I have a sleep button instead of guide? Pls fix! Nexus One & D5520
TE Doesn't work. Does not turn on my GPS on HTC Rezound. It did turn on my WIFI, though. Big woop.
works great but would love to also have "wifi off" and "gps off" commands! Using a motorola atrix 2 with ICS 4.0.4
Doesn't work This app won't turn on my Gps at all. I've sent like ten messages already and still doesn't work. My phone is a lg optimus elite
WiFi only - Not GPS It only activates wifi on my Samsung Galaxy III. Tried activating GPS several time without success. Uninstalled and reinstalled with same results. Not useful at all to me since there is no point in activating only wifi. My phone is locked so the user wouldn't be able to connect to a wireless network without being able to enter the login credentials
Great for use on your kids phone I am able to monitor my kids and not kill the battery all at once. Kudos and very stable and reliable.
Fail Sent success message multiple times without activating anything. Sprint viper.
Won't turn on my gps (samsung charge) I send a text msg and get back a "success" message but the GPS remains off. I'm uninstalling.

Doesn't Work Great idea, but does not work on my HTC Thunderbolt Android version 2.3.4
Crap Didint work sent 4 texts nothing happened then came here then got a text saying success. For what it done nothing.
Does not turn GPS on. When receiving the message GPS ON, the app will respond "success", even though the GPS remains off.
Doesn't Work on Modern Devices Not working on modern phones
Does not work GPS command does not work on LG Tribute 2. Wifi command does. Worked on Desire HD that i had but does not work on my newer phone.
doesn't work so far. will try again/update review I have a galaxy nexus purchased directly from google. i was trying this to see if it would work and it does nothing. i was using my google voice number (different from my phone number) to send SMS texts per the instructions, but nothing happened. i will try using someones phone in a bit and will update my review if anything changes for the better. additionally, to be clear, i have tried to use the app with both "GPS satellites" option enabled on my phone, as well as disabled. it seems to do nothing at all.
GoSms users BEWARE!!! work!!! gosms user have to disable the "disable other msg notification" option in the settings-->receive settings to make this app working! rate this helpful to let more ppl know this~ :-)
Had issues I first installed the paid version and it froze my phone so I uninstalled it and got my refund in time... the free version with less features is working better.
Confirmed don't work Tried on note 3 and nothing happened when messages were sent to it. Even though the success message came back. Fail
Not working I get a success reason text. But neither wifi or gps actually gets turn on or off.
It's like a MASTER at work! Do I need to say more? Nope, I don't need to. GPS/ WIFI/BT rinse your battery! Get this! Samsung Galaxy S!
Did nothing other than text itself then send a bogus "successful" text back to the sending phone even though it didn't turn the gps on
Wow This app used to work now it's a piece of crap don't waste your time to download
Good app. Works perfect. Though sometimes doesn't work for gps. But rest it will give u location of the phone as it move. network location which is accurate upto 20 mtr.
Slight problem Wifi turns on but GPS does not tmobile G2
Very good I love this app. I hope it can also send a google map coordinates when texted like 'gps coordinates'
Galaxy S3 No go for GPS, does turn on wifi. Too bad cause I would buy this if it would turn on the GPS!
