Consumer Reviews

  1. Does the sim needs credit balance or needs to top up account befor it to send text to my phone.

  2. I have received a gift of gps tracker which is identical with TK102. I am not sure because the unit or the manual does not mention model details. May I get support for my setting questions on this forum please.

  3. Where do I get a SIM card/Phone # for GPS ?

  4. I purchased this tracker off Amazon, it works as described above. It took alot of patience & digging to figure out this whole “sim card” thing, if you’re not savy.
    1st) Buy a sim card off Amazon or any electronics store. Cost me a penny.
    2) Activate it by doing it online following the instructions on it’s packaging or call them on the phone. They will assign the sim a TELEPHONE #. THIS IS THE NUMBER YOU NEED TO KEEP, WILL USE IT TO CALL THE TRACKER TO GET COORDINATES!!!!!
    Note:
    I did both. Online I actually ‘HAD ACTIVATED THE SIM CARD’ BUT DIDN’T PUT A CC FOR GIVING IT “TIME$DATA” . So I called up & purch. a minimum of $10 on the phone for 200mb of data (tho the CSA tried to PUSH me into a $35 unltd. purch. I had to hang up on this pushy s.o.b.!)
    3) Once the sim is activated & you have data purchased put it into the back of the tracker under the battery, with the entire sim card & 2 plastic peices all as one, it slides horizontally under the bigger bar, with the cut out to the upper right corner. (don’t worry about the smaller flip up one, it stays flat down & is UNDER the card as you slide it in)
    4) Also when you use they’re instructions to call & program it, you may need to see ‘OTHER NOTES’ on the net Like I did… Hope this helps
