I lost my android, can it be found in the apartments when the phones off?
To my knowledge, if the phone is turned off there is no way for a consumer to locate it without an external tag or similar product. Law enforcement may have methods beyond the reach of the general public, but I do not know how these work.
The country I live in can find phones even after Switching Off. They use IMEI numbers to track down the location of the phone. We just need to report to the police and file a case and make official statement.
And if you have installed a good antivirus it will message your contacts as soon as someone inserts a new SIM card.
