Method 5. Call your phone.
Use a landline or your friend's phone to try calling your missing iPhone. If it's nearby, you may hear it ring. Move from room to room as you call your phone. Enter your phone number on this website and it will call your phone for you. Check hard-to-reach places.
Use social media. Let people know on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and any other platforms you're on that your iPhone is missing.
Check with local law enforcement. Police stations and lost property stations in the vicinity of where you lost your iPhone might yield positive results. You can also file a report if you believe your phone was stolen. This will help track your phone in case it gets sold to someone else. Try the Missing Phones online directory.

Not Helpful 54 Helpful What can I do to find my phone if it was in airplane mode when I lost it? A phone that is in airplane mode does not have a connection to the internet, therefore you will have to physically search for it, or have your carrier shut off your data if you are unable to find it.
Not Helpful 15 Helpful The location of my phone is not where I left it so I think someone took it, what should I do? Call the phone to see who answers it and request that they return the phone to you. Clarify that you know the phone isn't where it is meant to be and that you won't report it missing if they return it to you. There is an app available that helps friends track missing devices, you might want to look into that, as it can widen your search area and you could inform the person who has your phone that you have many helpers seeking its whereabouts.

Answer this question Flag as Flag as Okay I used the find my iPhone app. How do I stop the pinging sound? Can I track my iPhone when it's turned off? Can I track it using my Facebook account? Can I track where my phone is if I don't have iCloud?
Yes, there's a "share location" in Google's map. Just turn it on if you get alone time with their phone. If they don't have a Google account, create one.
They don't send out emails. If you share it directly to your phone, they can find out though. If you just be patient and look at their "activity" later when you have alone time with their phone again, it shows a path of where they've been. If you want to keep it then photo it with your own phone, then delete it off of theirs so if they look, it'll be blank.
You can even hear any voice recordings they have shared with someone else. Patience is a virtue. Plus, you can deny you know it was on. After all, it's not like you're working AT Google!
This will work with ANY phones that have Google regardless if they're the same brand or type of phone or even computer. I cant find my hisband after he left the house after a fight. If you don't see him in Find Friends, then you'll have to wait until next to set it up on his iPad. If he doesn't have it set up, he doesn't have it set up. If you know his iCloud information, you can always use Find My iPhone to track it, but only if he has it activated on his end. So I know how to track someone's whereabouts, but how do I keep someone from tracking mine?
