Hi, perhaps getting 2 iPhones (wife and I), wondering if it has the GPS feature of tracking each others iPhone, I think some ATT phones offer that and I know it was a Helio feature too.

In other words I can see from my iPhone where my wifes is, and she can see where mine is.

Thanks.

Not heard of anything like this, unless something comes from the App store.

There was a demo at the WWDC that shown the contacts within 10 miles and their position in the Google Maps app, but I think this was shown as a programming example, not as a standard feature.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

They displayed a brand new application at WWDC called Loopt. It allows you to track your friends/family/whoever through GPS. It's geared as more of a social networking thing, though.

Yeah, I remember that.
So maybe there will be a feature that allows you to see where your contacts are. But it may not come standard, like ajprice said. Probably will be a downloadable App if anything.

Arrgh I'm confused now, was the 10 mile contact tracking part of Loopt?
