Locate Misplaced Galaxy Phone with Galaxy Tab 2


Jan 14, 2013
Many times I misplace my phone and when I cant find it I turn to my wife asking her to call the number using her dang iPhone. Worst is that I am standing in front of her with my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (wi-fi only) and have no means of using it to locate my Galaxy S3. She prompty reminds me that when she misplaces he iPhone she uses her iPad (wi-fi only) to quickly locate it.

I have found many "Locate your Phone" apps but all require anothe phone to call the misplaced one. Is there no way for my tablet to simply send a message, trigger an event or what ever to/on my phone???
