do you know what version of IOS is installed on the iphone..

the reason, "find my iphone" is free on iOS 4.2, using apple's, MOBILE ME service

you setup the mobile me account for your daughter on her phone, you create the account and password and other particulars, then you can login to and track the phone.

let me know

I haven't found the Find My iPhone app to be very useful at finding people, especially my wife and daughter, even when they are at home!

Something that might be more useful might be the following App (which I haven't used):

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

Your carrier may be able to help with an added feature.  AT&T, for example, has a feature to track family members.

Another thing to think about if you are tracking your child by the iPhone's GPS service, is locking the phone down so that they can't turn it off!
I have found that using your carrier's service, ends up costing a fee every month..

I would still try the "free" program by Apple, as I noted originally, the "find my iphone" app..

if you can't find it in the appstore, you can see it at Apple's website;

2 different "find my" programs..  both work great for me.. and "free" is always a nice charge..

My carrier could not provide a locating service with the iPhone. Downloading an app to my daughter's phone would be a big fight and she would probably turn her phone off or something else if we did install. thanks for all the great answers.
