Tracking lost/stolen iPhone

So I'm trying to help a friend of mine who's iPhone is believed to be stolen.

I called Apple and asked if there is any way they can track/flag down the iPhone if someone ever tries to activate it. Of course, they said no and what should have been done was to install Find my iPhone app and sync it with iCloud. Then the AppleCare guy I spoke to of course tells me that what could have been done is wipe the iPhone for security but didn't say anything about actually retrieving the iPhone.

In the end, I was told to look at other options in order to try to get my friend's iPhone back.

So my next move is to try with the carrier to see if they can possibly flag this particular iPhone if someone ever tries to activate it. Is this something they can do?

Thanks.
