US: AAA creates a bCall service for Sprint mobile phone users

For the first time in the wireless industry, AAA has teamed with Sprint to allow members to provide AAA with their GPS location without any additional charges, special devices or required downloads.

“Suffering from car trouble is bad enough, but it can be made worse when you’re in an unfamiliar location and have trouble relaying to AAA where to send assistance,” said Marshall L. Doney, AAA Automotive vice president.

“AAA FindMe will enhance member safety and security by providing AAA emergency service operators with stranded motorists’ GPS locations so roadside technicians can locate and assist them.”

AAA members who subscribe to Sprint must opt-in to the AAA FindMe service in advance (online) by providing their AAA membership number and Sprint mobile phone number. Subscribing to the service is free of charge and does not require any downloads or added services to the mobile phone.
