Family Locator now accessible from all web-enabled Sprint phones

US carriers have been aggressively rolling out and promoting kid-tracking services over the past couple years, and Sprint's just expanded the release of its version -- Family Locator -- to a wider audience. Any location-aware model in Sprint's arsenal can be tracked, but perhaps more importantly, the actual tracking service can now be accessed from any web-capable model the carrier sells (which we're pretty sure is all of 'em at this point). Interestingly, we were able to access the login and free trial pages of the phone-based tracking app from an AT&T phone, so it's possible that pretty much anyone with mobile web access can get their track on now -- much to the chagrin of the young'uns, we'd imagine.
