I suppose all of this is if you were smart in the beginning and linked your phone to your computer. Otherwise, how would you get these apps to work? Or perhaps that is info for a future article? I would think/hope that calling the servicing store and having them trace the phone through your phone # would be a reasonable and viable method -- esp when a phone is stolen. Seems like many are only out to make a buck though -- not a reflection on you or this article -- just an observation.
