The steady rise of mobile computing devices and local-area wireless networks has fostered a growing interest in location-aware systems and services. Consequently, the location based services has now become one of the most exiting features of the next generation wireless systems. This paper presents the work related to both person oriented and device oriented location based services, where the focus is not only to find the location of person but also to find the location of object (mobile phone).This work is valuable to a user to find the location in cases of kidnapping, loss of phone, security of girl child, location of elder members of the family having weak memory. Also, this type of work is also considered as an active location based service where the user is aware of being tracked with the agreement.
