    The boyfriend didn't update his phone and now he has mislplaced it......Has anyone else been able to use some sort of locator through AT&T or anything? Any information you all could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much

    You cant track it any other way.
    All you can do is call and hope someone answers and returns it.

    Sadly there isn't anything that you can do... If you don't have the phone in front of you to setup tracking software, you can't do it remotely... :(

    It sucks because I'm sure Apple can block the device from being reactivated but they don't offer such a thing. The carriers also will claim they will block the device (or claim they can't block it) but you can easily just jailbreak + unlock it and use it on any other carrier as you please (doesn't help that much in the US)

    So yea... there isn't anything for ya. Sucks but true :(

    I'll give you a big hug though I know whats its like to lose an iPhone 4 and knowing there is nothing I can do to stop the person who found it from using the device.

    Check his back pocket. If it's not there, then pray.

    Unfortunately, that just triangulates the signal from cell towers, so its accuracy could be off by as much as half a mile.

    God luck with it though
