When asking for help it is better to show us what you have done/tried so far. We also need to know what you DO know. Asking for 'all the steps' is not specific enough; my bet is that you would not be happy with: "1. write it. 2. Test it. 3. Deploy it."

Also: you mention that you are targeting both WP7 and Android: it is pretty hard to write someting that will run on both of these platforms.

You have to be more specific:
1. What is confusing?
2. What knowledge/skills do you have?
3. What tools are you using?
4. How did you get this assignment if you don't even know how to start? surely you are not entirely clueless?

Please stop shouting and start answering our questions.

1. What is confusing?
*whether i can create a mobile tracker without any external device for a mobile phone(wp7) and how do i locate lat n long of the place where mobile phone is...


2. What knowledge/skills do you have?
* i've jus completed my c# course and doing asp.net and vb.net now....


3. What tools are you using?
*tools as in???
(c#, asp.net and sql server)
and pls tell me if i've to use any other!!!!


4. How did you get this assignment if you don't even know how to start? surely you are not entirely clueless?
* it was my project partner who has chosen this topic as its unique!!!
and the plan goes like this create an app for wp7 which shows lat n long of the place of the mobile phone... tat lat n long is sent to the website(i don know how) which we will create and plot the coordinates on to a map in our website... this is our basic plan!!!

1. Yes you can. I guess you already downloaded the relevant tools? Get the free book too (See Chapter 5!) and have a look at this for simulation geolocations on the emulator.
2. Random advise: pick one language (C#) and learn it very well.
3. With these tools you can hardly/not target Android
4. Easy project to be honest; Microsoft gives you all the tools.

hi!!!
wat i've thought is making two applications one for wp-7 and the other a website!!!

Description : an app for a wp-7 which switches on gps without the user's notice and should locate the position(lat n long). then the lat n long is sent to the website(i don know how to accomplish this) without the user noticing it!!! and by the way i've to send a message to my app in wp-7 to switch on the gps to get lat n long coordinates through my website!!!! how do i do these???

In the future when asking a question, please try to use 5, or even 6, exclamation points. This will ensure that everyone knows that you mean business and your query is unlikely to remain ignored.

Why should we help you develop an application that hides things from it's users and thus is definately some form of malware (or potentially worse because i don't see many legit needs , even at the classical malware level, for an app to send "without user knowledge" position data to an external source.

OMG!!!!!!! not malware guys!!! if a mobile is lost or stolen then u think the user will allow the gps to be switched on to locate its position!!! and to send data to find the mobile!!!! ok if there is any other way i can build a mobile tracker then pls let me know!!! that was just my idea!!!

Again: listen to the posters in this thread, stop shouting and start answering questions. Really, clean up your language, this is no way of getting valuable responses. These people are in no way deserving to be shouted at or 'forced' to answer. Behave.

1. What would happen if ALL applications were able to silently enable or disable transmitting location information? I'll give you some hints: massive bills on data communication, privacy violations, ...
2. You can still make the application but it would be very much like the Google Latitude => optional. Leave mobile theft protection to the telco providers.

Here's an example of how you could have worded this:

Hello,
I'm sorry i obviously didn't mean malware, the idea behind having it be unnoticeable is to retrieve cell phones for people who lost it. If it was noticeable it would loose it's purpose.
Can you please tell me which API to use it or point me to a short tutorial on the subject as my search queries on google didn't yield anything relevant?
Thanks for your time.

Notice the lack of OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An app that removes double exclamationmarks?

Seriously: The app you envisioned is still useful but not for tracking your mobile but for tracking your friends/socialgroup.

The WP7 allows you to access your friends on Windows Live so you could make a tracker that keeps track of all your friends or a selection that run the app.

How could I suggest a project without knowing what the requirements are?
When you ask a question like this you won't get any good answers.

1. Why are you doing this project?
2. How much time is available?
3. Why do you need us to make suggestions, why can't you think of something yourself?

Extra suggestion: read all the replies you got in this thread. Most of them are trying to guide you into asking the correct questions in a correct manner. Have you ever read this (and the entire site)? If not do so.
