So my bag was stolen last night, containing my phone. It is a Samsung Galaxy 2. It is probably out of batteries right now, unless the thief charged it. I tried finding it through my Samsung account but apparently I hadn't registered the device. I don't think the SD card was in the phone, once again unless the thief put it back in. The GPS was on and the phone is registered through a Google account. I know the chances are slim, but if there was a way to retrieve my found it would be incredible.

You can try Google device manager but that really won't protect you to know where it is unless you're planning to go confront then theif (not recommended)

What you should do is log into your self serve account and report it lost / stolen..untik you do, you're responsible for any and all charges they may use your phone for (international calls, etc.)

It also renders your handset useless and puts it on the stolen device list.
