Tracking the phone after it has been stolen!!!

Does anyone know if the phone can be tracked after it has been stolen without having of the thirdparty locating software installed on it. Might there be a way using the IMEI or PIN for the phone after they try to unlock it to use it with the same or another service provider.

I dont think it can be done. The best thing is to block the phone and sort out a new one beucase I don't think it can be tracked down unfortunately. You carrier MIGHT be able to but I highly doubt it...

When all else fails, just ask your friend what happened. They won't know but at least your both failing in style!

Please consider Kudos when I help you resolve an issue!

The only real way this can be done is by the carrier...I assume AT&T.  With a subpoena they can track the device if it is on and homed to a tower.  Other than that, it can not be done.
