1) build time machine
2) go back in time to before you lost the phone and install tracking software

Hi Timo, I agree with Ahmad. Please try to be less sarcastic and more helpful. Thank you!

A less harsh version of Timo's post: you will need to have installed an app like Find my Droid before the phone was lost... at this point there isn't much you can do besides try calling your phone # and see if anyone picks up?

In any case, please go onto Self Serve and report your phone as stolen/lost so someone can't rack up your bill.

Then you'll probably want to either flock to Kijiji to find a replacement phone or just upgrade with Koodo.

You can always ask for some kind of help from Koodo by contacting Customer Service. They are usually very generous and will offer tab discounts, etc.

If the phone is still on, you can manually install "Where's My Droid" from the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

and then manually attempt to track it. Good luck!

You can also try Google's official Android Device Manager. You don't have to do anything, just go to the link.


When Android Device Manager first came out I played around with it a bit (didn't need to have had it already installed). It located my phone fairly accurately and allowed me to make it ring. If the battery died it might still show the last known location of your phone too before it ran out of power.

I believe this works based on where your gmail account is signed into. Meaning if this was more of a stolen than a lost phone issue, then it wouldn't really work if someone knew / cracked your password and signed you out (or if they factory reset it).

I believe if you wanted to lock your phone or wipe your data, you would have had to physically give permission ahead of time under the settings.
