    Default Found Stolen iPhone 4 via GPS & Latitude - Now What?
    Hey All-

    I've been in this scene for a while. I know this is off topic, but need help and thought I'd post for ideas.

    Last night, I left my phone at a restaurant after eating. I went back 20 minutes later and they said they didn't have it.

    I've been tracking it via GPS (Google Latitude) since. It's been in an apartment complex for most of the night and was at a grocery store most recently.

    I haven't wiped it or called ATT yet because I want to be able to track it more. I called the police, but even though I know where it is their hands are tied.

    When I try to call I get no answer, but have been thinking of ways to send a clever text to the theif - suggestions? Thanks

    don't let them know that you're tracking them. I read of one guy who took some friends and actually tracked down the thief with a notebook. however id advise against it for safety reasons. if you didnt cut the line, maybe your cell provider can log who's being called.

    you could however text a message that the phone is now blaklised (BS) and you are offering a no questions asked reward for the phone's return, but IMO that's rewarding a thief, however its cheaper than buying a new phone.

    also you LOST your phone, it wasnt stolen.
    60% of the time, it works every time.

    This may be stupid and possibly dangerous, but if I was in your shoes I wouldnt be hesitating to grab some friends and go knock on the door. If he refuses, go Chuck Norris on his ***!!!!

    in cylay you can track sms and phone calls. I would call every number on their phone. Maybe they are a drug dealer that is really paranoid. If you call all of the numbers, you will finally stir up enough trouble, but it's only a matter of time before the phone dies or they reformat

    If the police won't do it with this story, get some friends and go to the apartment complex. Then call the cops there and say someone just stole your phone and they went in that apartment. Well that's what I would do anyway.

    How did you even track this? Do you have Mobile Me or something?

    I google search and find "HelloSPY" app. It's FREE GPS tracking forever and have many features. Such as: Read SMS, Call History, WhatsApp message, Spy Call and more.

    You can download FREE and use trial 48h FULL features at hellospy.com. hope this help!
    Yes but this app is very expensive to use and needs a subscription service so its not really free. Id rather use Find my iPhone or the Find My Friends app.
